Me and my fiance want a small wedding at Lewes registry office, but we don't want a big do or even guests!
We wondered if it's normal to find random witnesses 'off the street' to witness the wedding - does this happen in Lewes, and would it be easy to find willing strangers?

Pedantry is also quite correct.
The fact that everyone knew what Rain302 was referring to says it all really.
Time to move on by chance.....

I'd be honoured to do it too, but only the sort of 'honoured' where you get material reward in the form of booze... not the cheap sort of 'honour' that is reward enough in itself.

Poor you Rain302
A simple question on this forum can't be met with a simple answer.
I got married in a Register office with no guests. There wasn't a way of inviting some people but not others without causing offence and risking fall outs so in the end we invited no-one and just announced it afterwards.
Be prepared for it to get a few people's backs up! Our nearest & dearest took great offence!
Anyway, in answer to your question, yes you can grab anyone off the street to bear witness. That is allowed by law. You don't have to know them personally. But what we did was even easier; we simply asked 2 members of staff who worked in the Register office and they kindly, and very happily, obliged. I got the impression they get asked a lot as it didn't seem.out of the ordinary for them to be asked.
