Looking at the recent figures from Bridebook National Wedding Survey.
So On Monday, the government is set to announce a review of Wedding Venue just in England and Wales, as Scotland has enjoyed much more freedom in where they can tie the knot.
Currently, in England and Wales have a great choice of venues but it’s limited as Civil ceremonies must take place in register offices or approved premises that have been licensed for the purpose by local authorities. While Anglican, Catholic, Methodist and Muslim weddings are required to take place in buildings certified as a place of worship and registered for the purpose of religious marriage, Jewish and Quaker weddings are not subject to similar restrictions.
Weddings can only legally take place outside if they are solemnised in a structure with a solid, permanent roof such as a gazebo. Ceremonies in temporary structures, such as marquees, are not permitted.
It’s aiming to look at lifting restrictions on al fresco locations, such as gardens and beaches, and temporary structures. Allowing you to have a marquee in a venue that has stunning views
The Treasury feel such anachronistic red tape was pushing up the cost of weddings and putting some people off getting married.
“Relaxing restrictions would make it cheaper and simpler for couples to get married, potentially supporting more people to get married,” it said.
Couples must go to the register office to be legally married and you can really have a handful of family and friends. Then what should be the main ceremony, many couples feel it a shame.
Speaking to some of the Brides and Grooms to be that have booked us for Magical Entertainment said, “a new law is very, very overdue in a society that is not all religious.”
