I can't help as due to give birth any second, but just wanted to say congratulations and to give you a hopeful bump.

Thank you so much for the reply- We'll be in Registry Office in Chelmsford CM1 1QH from 1.45 looking a little nervous.If you are free and we can't find anyone a little close will get in touch Sunday evening if that's okay

Congratulations, OP! We eloped a year ago and our witnesses were our B&B hosts. I'm sure a passer by would be happy to step in if you're really stuck flowers

AnUtterIdiot Fri 15-Jul-16 11:36:36

PS nowhere near Chelmsford, sorry

CantChoose Fri 15-Jul-16 11:41:12

Registry offices used to be able to offer a member of staff a witness if necessary, have you asked them? Then rules may have changed...
If I lived closer I would help smile always secretly fancied doing this myself...

Jellybellies7777 Fri 15-Jul-16 12:32:34

Thanks ladies for all the replies and well wishes, I thought that too, unfortunately registry office have said they can not provide witnesses, but not to worry we will also ask around on the day and find someone!

I'm offline for next few days now, back on Sunday evening so if anyone is free just drop me a line and will get back to you Sunday evening if okay

Thank you again all and have a lovely weekend : )

Hi. I'm about 45 - 50 minutes from Chelmsford and was thinking about doing a big food shop on Monday anyway. Happy to help out if you still need some one. Having organized our wedding just over 18 months ago, eloping sounds like a fabulous idea! Second wedding for us both and I couldn't believe how much time and work it took.
