Changes to wedding marriage certificate requirements

Changes to wedding marriage certificate requirements

In England and Wales, the law requires all marriages to be registered once they have taken place. The system for registering marriages is currently paper-based. The prescribed particulars to be registered for a marriage include details of the father but not the mother of each of the parties to the marriage.Calls have been made, both inside and outside of Parliament, for the law to be changed to enable the details of both parents of the parties to the marriage to be included on marriage certificates.Here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we think it's a great step forward in looking at changing some of the more outdated traditions of weddings and marriages and making them more relevant and reflective of the 21st century.Subject to the approval of draft regulations which have been laid before Parliament, the Government intends that a new system of marriage registration will be implemented on 4 May 2021 and that the particulars to be registered for a marriage will be updated.Until now, the document only included the names of the fathers of the couple, but a change to the Marriage Act means both parents will be included.... read more

Sustainable, zero-waste weddings guide

Sustainable, zero-waste weddings guide

Do you know how much of an impact your big day could have on the world around you? Here are some startling statistics which might make you reconsider how you want your wedding to be.Everything we throw away which can't be recycled has a negative impact on the environment. If something isn't biodegradable, it could take thousands of years to break down naturally. Plastic is unsurprisingly at the heart of the issue. Individually, one wedding can produce as much as 20kg of plastic waste. What's more, the black bags used to collect the rubbish are themselves potentially harmful.
