Council’s new register office opens in Arnold

A new register office based in an historic landmark building in the heart of Arnold has opened its doors for weddings and other ceremonies and to register births and deaths. 

Nottingham County Council’s Registration Service has refurbished two room rooms within the Grade II Arnot Hill House for its servicesand the first wedding is taking place this Saturday (November 26).

Grant Dixon, 28, and Joanne Searcy, 30, from Calverton, are holding a ceremony at the venue with four bridesmaids, two page boys and 55 guests.

Joanne said: “We love the location as the grounds are stunning and it is local to Grant and I and a lot of our family.

“The lovely old building also sold it to us and we are thrilled to be the first couple to get married there!”

A registrar is based in the building for birth, death and other registration appointments in place of the previous Gedling base at Carlton which was in a less central location and did not have a ceremony room.

Helen Scaman from the Registration Service said: “To be able to offer people the choice to get married here is wonderful. The venue is beautiful, the room we have available for weddings and other ceremonies has a grand feel and striking original features with a lake view and the location is fantastic.”

  1. Hello,
    We booked our wedding ceremony on 11th of April. Could you tell me when is the last day when we could come to give notice? Also, I have my national id expired, I applied for a Passport but din’t arrived yet, I have like other document, my Romanian Birth Certificate and English Provisional Driving License, will this be ok for the notice in case that my passport will not arrive? Please if you can give me advise on this and let me know the last day when we can book the appointment to book notice( My fiancée is desperate and we don’t want to loose our appointment on 11th of April to get married).

    Thank you,
    Alexandru Honceriu
