At its most basic, a civil wedding ceremony must include legal declarations of status and the exchange of marriage vows. In short, both partners make verbal commitments to love and support each other throughout the rest of their lives. These vows can be accompanied by an exchange of rings, but this is not an obligatory part of the ceremony.
Venue licensing is a long and complicated topic. Has it got you scratching your head? If you’re confused about the legal aspects of getting married, you’ve come to the right place.
Here in the UK we are fortunate enough to be able to get married 24/7. Meaning we can legally marry any day, any time, including getting married at night. Although it wasn’t always this way.
