The Ceremony

The Wedding Ceremony really is the main part. The part when you and your fiancé become husband and wife and someone says 'You may kiss the Bride'!

If you belong to a particular religion or feel very strongly one way or the other, this may be a no-brainer for you. If you still need to weigh up the options though, continue reading!

Civil weddings must take place at licensed premises, which must be a permanent structure with a roof. They must not have any religious references (i.e. readings or hymns), and in order to be legally married you must say vows and sign the register.

More information about the legal side of marriage can be found here.

Regulations for Church weddings will depend on your denomination, and in some cases the minister marrying you. For example in the Church of Scotland, you can have your wedding wherever, provided the minister is authorised. In the Church of England there may be restrictions upon where you live (if it's in the parish in which you want to marry it should be fine) and if you have been married before.
