Celebrating Marriage: A New Weddings Law

20 Jul 2022

Since our Summit Session in 2021, we have been keeping tabs on The Law Commission’s recommendations to reform England and Wales’s wedding laws.

One year later on July 19th 2022, The Law Commission have published their final report, outlining recommendations to revitalise UK marriage laws to reflect a more modern society.

Under current law, the rules and regulations governing weddings are “confusing, out-of-date, and restrictive”, preventing many couples from marrying in a place that holds special value for them or having a ceremony reflecting their own wishes and beliefs.

However, following growing public desire for more personal wedding options, The Law Commission now proposes that couples will have more freedom to personalise the content of their ceremony and recognise cultures, faiths and beliefs. The proposed changes will also give couples greater choices of where to get married, guaranteeing that weddings can take place in “any safe and dignified location”.

Whilst no timeline for the legal changes has been given yet, we believe that these recommendations represent a step toward equality for people of all races and religions who desire a wedding that honours their choices and needs.
