Pink Wedding Days and Civil Partnership Wedding Entertainment

Ceremony Facts:

From the 5th December 2005, gay and lesbian couples began to register at registrars offices across the country their intention to carry out a civil partnership ceremony. Within the first two months approximately 4,900 have either registered or carried out their ceremony, with an estimated 10,000 couples intending to marry in the first year alone. All couples must adhere to the following requirements:

The Civil Partnership Act applies to all residents within the UK and Northern Ireland. Registering under this Act will offer gay and lesbian couples similar legal benefits as heterosexual married couples. For further details on registering, contact your local council or registry office, or visit: www.gro.gov.uk. After you have legally registered your partnership, you will be known as “Civil Partners”. There is no stipulation that you automatically take your partner’s surname, so if you would like to change your last name you will need to make changes by deed poll.

Here at pink wedding days we believe it is a golden opportunity to really push the boat out and have the wedding you have always wanted which until now has only been a dream.
