Legal Marriage in the UK

We are often asked if an Independent Celebrant can register a legal marriage in the UK. The short answer is no. However, that is not the end of the story so please do read on for more information.

For full details of how to get legally married in the UK please follow the following link Marriage in the UK. To become legally married in the UK a couple must say some prescribed words (about 50 in total) in front of a Registrar with two witnesses who are over the age of 18 years. The rest is up to you….

As Independent Celebrants we love to celebrate 🎉, it’s in the blood! We want to help you celebrate your commitment. Although the “legal bit” must be done by a Registrar, we can include the exchange of vows, exchange of rings and any other content you, as a couple, would like. Remember we design bespoke ceremonies of celebration with you, for you. The celebration can take on whatever theme you like and will be as unique as your relationship is. Remember, this is all about you as a couple who are taking the courageous step in announcing your commitment to each other to the world.
