Signing the marriage license.

Gay Wedding Legal Requirements

A Civil Partnership and Same Sex Marriages (from March 2014) provides for single sex couples to form a partnership, recognised in law, to become next of kin to one another, and to enjoy the same rights and privileges awarded to married couples.

The partnership is formed when you sign a legal document in the presence of a Civil Partnership/Marriage Registrar and two witnesses. There is no requirement to have a ceremony, so this can be done with a Tailor Made Ceremonies Celebrant. Your declaration of love and commitment by saying your vows and exchanging rings in front of your friends and family is, to us, the most special and significant part of your wedding.

Having your ceremony officiated by a Tailor Made Ceremonies Celebrant gives you the freedom to decide its location and content.  Registrar led services are restricted by a set script and can only be performed in licensed venues, limiting you to options outside of these regulations. Gay marriage, Gay Wedding.

After making a booking with us and starting your journey to your personalised service, you will need to make arrangements with the Registry Office to complete the legal element of your marriage/civil partnership. Many couples decide to do this in the morning of their wedding or a day or two before.
