Night-time Weddings To Be Allowed

For those romantics who’ve always dreamed of a night-time wedding, taking your vows under the starry skies, there is good news ahead.  You will no longer be constrained to the current hours of 8am until 6pm under the Marriage Act of 1886 as there are plans to allow 24hour weddings in England and Wales as part of the Protection of Freedoms Bill.  Currently if you want to marry at night, a trip to Las Vegas is the only way, or perhaps a winter wedding as late in the day as you can to allow dusk to fall, but a midsummer wedding will be possible under the new plans allowing for a late wedding followed by the celebrations immediately after.  This is perfect if you don’t want the pomp and circumstance of a traditional wedding breakfast and would rather get on with the party or if you’re planning a gothic theme to your wedding and want the drama of darkness as your guests arrive.  Most guests will only see the romance of a scene like the castle above (Comlongon Castle in Dumfries) when it’s time to leave rather than when they arrive, and who really looks behind them as they leave?  There are no dates in the plans at the moment, but with the current government trying to encourage marriage, lets hope it will be sooner rather than later.
