First I've received my documents back and an approval letter in an A4 plastic mailing bag, asking to wait for the ceremony letter from council.
Dated a day later, I've received a separate approval letter in the usual A5 brown envelope, asking to contact council for the ceremony within 21 days.
I was away and the council sent a letter automatically including a date for the ceremony, only asking for confirmation of attendance. :P
