Thanks to a change in the law in 2022, couples can now say “I do” amidst nature’s beauty, and Ludacrust is all set to roll in with a pizza party at your chosen location.
Outdoor Ceremony Laws: A Breath of Fresh Air
Gone are the days of being bound to indoor venues. The latest legal updates, The Marriages and Civil Partnerships: Approved Premises Amendment, enacted in April 2022, allow legal outdoor weddings anywhere on the grounds of an approved premises. While religious and non-approved venues are excluded, the change opens up a world of possibilities for unique and budget-friendly ceremonies.
There are 106 approved outdoor venues in Somerset. Check out the whole list here.
