Looks like Celebrant led weddings are going to be the hottest thing to hit 2024.
Interesting article in Metro
It is worth noting...
A legal wedding for under £100 which everyone is entitled to by law if -
. you have it at the registry office
. you don't have it at an approved venue
But you're determined to marry at your venue? There is a way, skip down to where it says MANY COUPLES
So, at some registry offices you can only have this option on a certain day of the week...why? Legally you have to be offered this cost option...BUT...
on other days at some registry offices to have your legal ceremony you have to hire an approved room in the same building which costs a whole lot more. The same applies if you choose an approved venue, it can then cost over £700! The ceremony is exactly the same just in a different place, and you might not get the time slot you want either.
Often this isn't made very clear to couples and its not easy to interpret on websites.
COUPLES who know ...do the legal ceremony for under £100 and have a celebrant create something personal and meaningful for them at their chosen venue, and it can be just like the legal ceremony if you like, the added bonus is more choice of venue as it doesn't have to be licensed for ceremony, and you choose the time of your ceremony. This applies to weddings in England.
So if you have any questions about this or want to know more get in touch.
