Conventional UK weddings and civil partnerships take place at registry offices, religious institutions and specific licenced locations – and all of these events must stick to their respective defined formats. But you have other options.
The only UK legal requirement to register a marriage is to say appropriate words to a licensed person and to sign the marriage register. Anything else, including bridal entrance, exchanging rings and saying vows is purely ceremonial and can take place anywhere you want, in any format you want and at any time you want.
You choose the venue – home, garden, beach, pub, marquee, boat, historic site, woodland, sports field, hot air balloon, whatever… You choose the timing – daytime, night-time, by candlelight or by moonlight.
You can register your marriage quickly and cheaply at a registry office and then, sometime later, have the wedding ceremony and celebration that you have dreamt of.
As your wedding celebrant, I will work with you to design and script a ceremony to give you exactly what you want. If you can picture it, I can make it work for you.
