I've poked around quite a few UK government and wedding advice sites since my last questions, but I can't find an answer to these three questions:
Does a couple (in England) have to complete their Marriage Notice Form at the Registrar, or can they download it, fill it out and sign it at home and then bring it in with their required documents (birth certificate, passport, driver's licence, etc. etc.) at the time they're giving notice?
Are any witnesses or "guarantors" needed to sign the Notice Form as well (rather like on a passport form)?
Also, what exactly does it mean when the Registrar "makes a schedule" for the couple once the 15 days of posting the Notice Form has finished? To me, a schedule is like a time-table, detailing several things that all have different times. However, from context, it seems just as if this is the wedding date? Or is it more a period of time in which the wedding is allowed to take place? Or is it open spots in the Registrar's own schedule when he or she is willing to perform the ceremony? If it's a period of time, can it begin pretty much as soon as the 15 days are over?
Thank you for any help.
