Weddings in England and Wales
Celebrants cannot legally officiate at a wedding. (watch this space!) Generally, legal Marriage Registration takes place separately, perhaps a few days before the Wedding Day itself, at this point I suggest you do not exchange rings!! I like to think of it as registering the birth of a child, or perhaps signing the legal deeds to your first house. Once the short but necessary legalities are completed then it’s time to party! The Wedding Celebration may be held anywhere and at any time. Your celebration will have such a sense of occasion, that for you and your guests, this will be the moment when your marriage becomes a reality.
