These REGISTER FOLDERS are one of our most popular products.
The Celebrants Network recommends purchasing a CEREMONY REGISTER folder as this will be more versatile for your other ceremonies.
Register folders are
- an alternative to hand-written marriage register books
- light weight
- ensure better security of couples' and families' records and
- allow all forms to be typed rather than hand-written
- providing more professional documentation to be produced.
Motif: Rose or pair of rings or none.
Text: Marriage Register or CEREMONY REGISTER (you specify)
Note - Starting out a Ceremony Register may be more versatile.

Plastic sheets ensure textured fabric does not affect signatures
Place the first Marriage Certificate (form 16) in folder under the corner tabs

A decorative Our Marriage Vows or Celebration of Marriage Certificate can be placed under the Form 15, if you wish to provide one

CARE OF YOUR MARRIAGE OR CEREMONY REGISTER
Take care to ensure pens etc in your briefcase don't press against the fabric. If small dents do happen, your register can be gently rubbed with a clean cloth whilst warming it with a hair dryer or gently ironed.
Any cleaning product will clean them up (not metho or turps, they dissolve the material but is useful for putting any Colour on a worn spot).
Vaseline will put a shine back in the material and make it water repellent and also clean dirty spots
If any brass corners get lost, let us know and we can send a replacement out.
Any PVA glue will fix any parts that may occasionally lift off with extensive use or age
