At 12:00 noon on Friday, 27th July 2012, Bath Registry Office will be marrying six couples to celebrate the Opening Day of the Olympic Games as well as the 175th anniversary of the introduction of Civil Registrations for England and Wales.
The grooms will all arrive between 11:00 am and 11:15 am with each bride being allocated a specific time slot to arrive so they can make an individual entrance into the Guildhall.
The Mayor of Bath, Councillor Andrew Furse will be conducting the two readings during the ceremony and the Chairman of Bath and North East Somerset Council, Councillor Rob Appleyard will be welcoming the guests and the couples to the Guildhall.
ITV are attending to film part of the ceremony to include it in a special programme they are making about events around the country to celebrate the Olympic Games.
To keep within the law each couple will have their own Registrar completing the marriage entry and their own Deputy Superintendent Registrar asking them individually to repeat the legal declarations and contractual words.
