This is a campaign that’s very dear to my heart. We really struggled to find a wedding venue that offered a ceremony outside…and are now getting married under a quirky ‘toot’ in the garden of a country house. I’m sure will be perfect – but it was always my dream to be married on the cliffs over-looking our local beach, where I was proposed to…
Our UK laws state that couples must be married under a permanent structure, which is a huge constraint for those of us who haven’t dreamt of a traditional church ‘do’ and don’t want the formalities of a town hall or hotel. It also states that ceremonies must take place between the hours of 8am and 6pm…so no atmospheric candlelit ceremonies for the romantics amongst us!
The Any Campaign has been created by talented photographers and free-thinkers Tino & Pip (who also want to be wed outside!) to make a stand against these laws – in hope that we can get them relaxed and finally enjoy wedding ceremonies wherever and whenever we like.
So if like me, you feel passionate about changing these dated laws, so that we can finally celebrate our Great British shores and quintessentially English country gardens, be sure to sign the petition here!
