Some register offices are opening for the first time to cope with demand.

Chichester Register Office, in West Sussex, is opening for the first Sunday in its history.

A spokesman for West Sussex County Council said it was a “in response to popular demand”.

Manchester Register Office is opening for only the third time since it started holding weddings in 1837. Six couples will marry there on Sunday.

Ngaryan Li, who is marrying Steven Higham, said: “I’m of Chinese origin and it’s seen as a very good date.”

She added: “It means the perfect day.”

Ms Li, whose parents came to the UK from Hong Kong some 35 years ago, said: “I was ringing round quite a lot of places, then Manchester Register Office said they were going to be open.

“It wasn’t my first choice – of somewhere local – but the main thing was offering the date.”
