Which Intimate, Small Elopement Venue Is Your Favourite?

A note, to legalise your Marriage, at a licensed venue, you will need a Registrar who will use thegovernment approved script with options A B C and your vows will need to be approved beforehand. Your Ceremony will be about 20 minutes. A better option will be to book a (10 minute) ‘signing of the register’ appointment at your local office. This costs about £80 depending on your local area. By doing this, either before or after your Celebrant-led ceremony, you are separating your ‘marriage’ (the legal bit) from your ‘wedding’ (the celebration, fun bit).

You can then experience your personal, meaningful and bespoke Celebrant-led ceremony with me, indoors or out, without any rules, regulations, restrictions or time constraints. A wedding ceremony that’s a true reflection of you and your love story. If you would love to experience your own magical, meaningful wedding ceremony in one of these beautiful small exclusive wedding venues, please contact them to find out if your day is available and how you can book. small wedding venues Cornwall
