Get a relationship certificate
You can order relationship certificates when you apply to register your relationship. You can also order any time after your relationship has been registered.
If you order certificates, we will mail them to you once the ceremony has taken place.
Certificate on the day
On the day of the ceremony, the celebrant will give you a ceremony certificate. You’ll both sign this certificate, with your celebrant, as part of the ceremony. This certificate is a memento for your own records.
If you need an official record of your relationship, apply for a standard relationship certificate.
You can also apply for one of our attractive commemorative certificates.
Will the date on the certificate be the same as the date of the ceremony?
The standard and commemorative certificates will show the date BDM registers your relationship. If you would like this date to be the same as your ceremony date, please let us know. You can do this by replying to the confirmation email we send you.
