Same Sex Marriage

Same Sex Marriage

Legal marriage for same sex couples came into force on 29th March 2014. For those who have already been through legal civil partnership you will be able to apply for a conversion, this should come into effect by the end of 2014. If you cant wait you can have a symbolic ceremony now, then go down the conversion route later. I can conduct your ceremony at any time that is right for you. The legal side can be conducted before or after your ceremony.

I have worked with same-sex partners and offer a sensitive and flexible approach to make sure I meet your expectations by way of celebration; one that is personal to you and whilst reverent is packed full of joy for your new future.

If you are planning a wedding and want a very personal approach and a celebration you can look back on with the happiest of memories, do call me to discuss this.

  • Are you looking for a place of beauty for your ceremony, but don’t want to be restricted only to approved venues?
  • Are you unimpressed with the traditional, where the same words for every couple are simply read from a book?
  • Do you want a ceremony that expresses your love and commitment to each other in a totally unique, personalised and meaningful way?

Everybody wants to have the ‘Wedding of their Dreams’ and on most occasions everything is planned down to the last letter...... except the content and the words of the ceremony itself.

In 1994 the laws in the United Kingdom changed, allowing licensed venues other than registry offices to be used for civil marriage ceremonies. The content a same sex ceremony remains pretty much unchanged and this type of marriage or service can often be uninspiring and lack the pomp and flair that many couples rightly feel their relationship deserves.
