I'm a wedding registrar working across several boroughs. Summer is peak wedding time but we've been busy since coming out of lockdown. I've seen every type of wedding and behaviour you can imagine. Here to help with any questions! AMA!

I read of a terrible case recently of a man befriending an elderly woman with dementia and marrying her without her family’s knowledge, so he would inherit her property when she died. IIRC, the poor woman could just about remember her date of birth but not the man’s name - she always called him “laddie”.
Are there any safeguards against this happening?

Do you feel your training is adequate when things change? When we got married the registra told us we didn’t need to buy additional copies of our marriage certificate, she said this because she thought we needed a deedpoll for our name change, when no, we just needed the marriage certificate. We had to show her the gov page on our phone in the end.
