John and I went to the Crawley Registry Office on Wednesday to put in our paperwork. It was not very straightforward as we did not realise that we had to have an appointment. I managed to get someone lovely to agree to see us at 12:30 and we were interviewed seperately and had to sign a declaration that we are both free to marry.
We have set the date for October 30th at 3 pm!! If there are no complications with my paperwork (the japanese/english parts) it should go ahead then.
