Night-time weddings to be allowed

No plans for Las Vegas style weddings.

Did you know that night-time weddings will be able to take place in the future, under plans outlined by the government as part of the Protection Of Freedoms Bill?
At the moment  couples can only wed between 8am and 6pm, but the changes will allow marriages to take place 24 hours a day in England and Wales. This will also apply to civil partnerships.
The changes are expected to boost the demand for evening civil wedding ceremonies, especially in the summer months.
However, do not expect to be able to marry in a Las Vegas-style chapel where in the past some couples have wed after a night of heavy drinking! You will still be required to give at least 15 days advance notice.
