More couples are looking to get married in the open air following the announcement that outdoor weddings at licensed venues in England and Wales would be legalised permanently after temporary legislation introduced during the pandemic.
Previously, civil weddings and ceremonies at a licensed wedding venue had to take place indoors or inside a permanent outdoor structure, like a bandstand.
However, during the pandemic, such restrictions were eased to allow safe, covid-friendly weddings in outdoor spaces.
Now, couples have the option to get married anywhere within a licensed premise’s grounds, including outside.
The change reflects a growing trend among engaged couples seeking to plan outdoor weddings.
