Witness my wedding please

Hi lovely MNs

Any volunteers to witness my wedding next Wednesday please?☺️
We’ve finally booked a date (08/08/18) at Stamford registry office, Lincolnshire.

We’ve been together for 22 years and have two young children. We do have a large family from all over the UK but it would not be fair to invite some but not others. We’re both introverts and would just like to finally make it official without any fuss, and I’m sure our family would understand anyway as everyone already refers to us as husband and wife.

Desperate plea - Can anyone help, pretty please?

Oh blimey, I love a MN wedding witness thread! Sadly I'm in London, so can't help. Hopefully someone else can though.

Good luck and have a fab day!

I can't help as I'm nowhere near, but we did this too and I've never regretted it for a moment. Enjoy!

You’re too far for me unfortunately.

I think someone had 2 MN witnesses years ago. Was a really seeet thread

Oh goodness, I love these threads!! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding 👰🏼

APocketfulOfStars Sat 04-Aug-18 20:17:13

Oh, i would if i were nearer. I really hope you find people!

Congratulations, very sorry i can't get there, would love to help

Just as a back up, could you ring the registry office and see whether they might have any staff that might be able to help. Or ask the couple in the slot ahead of you.

This was my absolute favourite way of getting the paperwork for a wedding done.

I'm nowhere near but am waiting for the day someone gets married near me and needs a witness!

TorviBrightspear Sat 04-Aug-18 20:47:38

I might be able to. I live in Leicestershire, in reasonable driving distance, and might be able to get the day off work. My DD has recently turned 18, so she could legally witness.

If you can't get anyone closer to you, PM me smile
