Happy couples looking to tie the knot in the near future could soon find they have a lot more meaningful options than in the past, with a review by the Law Commission into where you can marry in England and Wales now in process.
Apparently, the project will look at where weddings should be able to be held, as well as looking at how to remove red tape that could hinder choice and push up costs of venues.
“A couple’s wedding day is one of the most important events in their lives. Our project aims to bring the 19th century law up to date and make it more flexible, giving couples greater choice so they can marry in a way that is meaningful to them,” Nick Hopkins, law commissioner, said.
The review will also look into how to make sure the law works for all couples, no matter what faith they are, as well as those who aren’t as well served under the buildings-based system as it stands right now.
A scheme could soon be developed that allows non-religious belief groups to celebrate weddings, meaning the government would be able to widen the routes to legally binding ceremonies.
Brides-to-be currently planning their styles and themes, mulling over which bridesmaid tiaras to spoil their friends with might also find it useful to keep up to date with all the latest wedding trends in this regard.
