Have you always dreamed of getting married outside in the garden of a beautiful country house on a warm summer day, or even in the garden of your childhood home like they do in films?
Well unfortunately if you plan to get married in England this is not going to be possible due to the current marriage law that states that a marriage ceremony venue must have a roof, be moored to its foundations and licensed by the local registrar. Not only that, it states a marriage must take place between 8am and 6pm!
In many countries including Ireland and Scotland it is the registrar that holds the licence not the venue, meaning you can marry wherever and whenever you want your perfect wedding to be.
Penny & Martin from Tino & Pip Photography have launched this amazing campaign, the Any Campaign, to try and get as many people as possible to sign the petition to help in getting these current laws relaxed so couples can have the wedding of their dreams (rather than the one they have to choose due to these laws). Find out more about the Any Campaign.
Penny & Martin need at least 1000 signatures to present their petition to the government. Please help by signing the Any Campaign Petition.
As well as getting signatures they would love to get brides thinking about what this law change would mean. Join the inspiration conversation: If I could be married anytime, anywhere…
