Although the law changed in 1992 allowing you to get married in a licenced venue, the ceremony content hasn’t really changed. You have to follow a prescribed service with little room for personalisation and freedom of expression. Infinite Love weddings allow you to have a complete freedom.
Here are some details regarding the legal aspects of getting married:
When you call the registry office, tell them you want a ‘no frills’, basic marriage registration. They will then talk you through the appointment booking and availability. It is a two stage process as follows:
1. For all weddings, couples must enter a notice of marriage. At least one month prior to the wedding, you will both need to attend an interview to get the legal paperwork and you will pay approximately £35 each for this.
Once you have completed the notice of marriage, you can then book a ‘registration of marriage’
2. Registration of marriage – this is approximately £50 and takes place at the register office.
