Marriage is a rite of passage that needs much deliberation and careful thought. And before being married, a wedding is, of course, a requirement.
Each and every one has their own kind of dream wedding, and it may differ in regards to theme, concept and even location.
Those with a lot of money even do their wedding ceremonies in different places, even going as far as overseas, like in London. If you are a local or a foreigner wanting to marry in “The Square Mile,” here are some guidelines.
As in any wedding, planning is to be done and you and your partner should discuss and come to a compromise on things. First would be the wedding venue. This will depend if you will have a civil or a traditional church wedding. A famous venue in London is the Mayfair Library where you can enjoy the intimate occasion in a quiet and romantic atmosphere. If you really go down the civil path, registrars must attend the ceremony as well so book early. And before getting married (no less than 16 days), a notice of the intention to marry must be submitted. This is a legal document that should be done by both locals and non-citizens, and it will cost around £35 per notice (so it will be £70 per couple). Pre-ceremony interviews are carried out by the registrar as well.
Now, when you decide to get married, you and your partner must be not less than 18 years old. Required documents include birth certificate, passport, and Authority Certificate. If any of you is below 18 years old, there must be parental consent to allow you to wed. Divorced papers should be presented if you have been through a divorce.
In an occasion as major and important as this, recording and keeping the memories is very worth it. The wedding photographers London has are certainly competent in documenting various weddings, especially if they are in their own hometown, since it is familiar territory for them. Hire one that you trust and one whose style you prefer. Take into account your budget when employing.

There is no question that aside from legalities, elements like wedding gowns, invitations, and food, among others, are basics to be accomplished. Start to explore and tour around London so that you can have more options to choose from. Or you can also do the work at home by surfing the Web or ask for recommendations from family and friends.
Wherever you may get married, be it London or any other venue in the world, always remember that it is not only about the wedding, but it is also about the union and marriage that binds two people together. To those who are to tie the knot in the near future, congratulations and best wishes!
