Welcome to The Pink Guide
We thrilled to welcome same-sex couples to our wedding directory and despite our name “Guides for Brides,” we very much welcome LGBT couples!
As a gay couple planning a Civil Partnership you will need a reliable source of advice and information, plus a directory of supportive wedding suppliers. Many of the businesses listed on our directory are gay-owned or gay-run. We have divided our database into counties and categories, so that you can look for businesses close to you first. You can also search by postcode or keyword. Inevitably some areas, in particular London, Brighton and Manchester, are better known for Civil Partnerships.
Civil Partnerships are an integral part of marriage law history and registrars have a duty to uphold the law and leave their religious beliefs at home. If you’re unsure as to what the laws are on same-sex marriage, then keep reading!
Same-sex marriage became legal in the UK on 29th March 2014, and since then thousands of gay couples have got married! We’re so happy to see that more and more venues are becoming licensed for civil ceremonies/partnerships so you will have lots of options when it comes to finding your dream wedding venue. When looking at a venue on our website, make sure you check out the ‘services provided’ section to see if the venue is licensed for civil ceremonies. So, now that you know all the info, you can start planning for your big day!
