Government info on weddings
Organising your big day can be a stressful experience, but you can access a huge range of official and up-to-date information about the practical and legal requirements of getting married, living together and civil partnerships in one central place on GOV.UK, the Nation’s official website.
As well as the legal information about getting married, or entering into a civil partnership, you can also find useful practical information from finding a venue and learning about ceremonies abroad through to how to have a greener ceremony, Fairtrade and ethical rings and even guidance on buying conflict-free diamonds. GOV.UK combines useful information from official sources such as the General Register Office (GRO); Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)..
