THE LE­GAL BIT…

Perfect Wedding Magazine - - Plan Your Wedding -

You and your fi­ancé must be at least 16 to be legally mar­ried. In Eng­land and Wales, if ei­ther of you is un­der 18 years of age, then you must have your par­ent or guardian’s per­mis­sion. In Scot­land you don’t need parental per­mis­sion if you are over 18. You must not be closely re­lated to each other and you must both be free to marry. The mar­riage must take place in le­gal premises, such as a regis­ter of­fice, re­li­gious venue or a li­censed venue. The mar­riage must take place in the pres­ence of a reg­is­trar or of­fi­cial. Two wit­nesses must be present who are old enough to un­der­stand the cer­e­mony.
