We regret to announce that we have to postpone the 10th September launch!
The Election has been called on 12 December. We will not have the attendance of the many MPs, Peers and officials from Government departments who wanted to attend. We have been asked to hold the Parliamentary event early next year. Please follow our page on Eventbrite and our website for announcements of future events. We are proud that our regional launches will go ahead, to which we ask you to invite men, women and young people who wish to learn how to be marriage registrars, as well as to know the consequences of not registering marriages:
- Bradford - 7 November. Launches by Naz Shah (prospective parliamentary candidate)
- Birmingham - 11 November
- Leicester - 15 November
We thank you for your overwhelming support for our Events and look forward to meeting you there.

Saleha Islam, ROM National Project Manager, was a Judge at the Beacon Mosque Awards on 7 September 2019 in London.
The evening was a great success. Saleha spoke to a number of people about ROM, including the founder of the awards, Shaukat Warraich, who was extremely supportive.
Attendees were delighted that Saleha was working with ROM and there was much interest in our campaign. London mosques were particularly keen for ROM to deliver our message there, after hearing of our pioneering work in Bradford and the Midlands.
Saleha was pleased to sit with his Excellency Nafees Zakaria, High Commissioner of Pakistan. Saleha said ‘What a lovely and humble man. I have met lots of ambassadors before, but he was top notch’.
I have supported this campaign for the past few years and it has made a real difference on the ground. It is led by credible people who are known to the community and I wish it every success.
I am delighted to be supporting ROM because the Catholic church also has to volunteer to register their marriages and we want all faiths to be covered under marriage law equally.
