Important Legal Note:
Under the Marriage (Northern Ireland) Order 2003, you must give Notice to Marry to the registry office in the district where the marriage is to take place.
A legal marriage ceremony must be performed either by a registered religious officiant or a registrar.
My client couples usually attend the registry office a few days before their wedding day for this. It's a very simple procedure that takes about five minutes and just involves repeating the registrar's words of solemnisation in the presence of two witnesses.
Then your marriage or civil partnership certificate is issued, you have your legal status and you're all set to enjoy your Big Day and your bespoke ceremony with family and friends.
An ancient Celtic tradition where your hands are tied together with ribbons for a few moments during the ceremony to symbolise the binding together of two hearts, two lives and two families. This is where the expression 'tying the knot' originates!
You each pour sand from a small jar into the unity jar. Just as the grains of sand can now never be separated, so you make your vow never to be separated, once married. This is a lovely element which can also involve your children or other family members.
A traditional ceremony that holds a universal meaning. You each light a candle and then bring the flames together to light the unity candle, symbolising your union as a couple in marriage and the blending of your two families.
Doves choose one partner for life and make this commitment until death. It is said that if doves are seen in flight on your wedding day, yours will be a happy home.
