It is very important to select the proper venue for your wedding as the wrong choice can make your wedding memorable for all the wrong reasons

Even though it is legal to marry in any setting you choose, there are some important considerations to make before you decide.

  • If the marriage is to be conducted outdoors, an alternative venue must be organised  in case  of rain.
  • Are there toilets available?
  • Is it the venue the right size, big enough to hold all your wedding guests or comfortably for a small wedding party?
  • Is the venue available on the day you want?
  • To hold a ceremony in a public place such as a park or beach, you  need to get permission from the relevant local authority.
