Getting Married Outdoors
In some venues we offer an Approved Venue Duo (AV Duo). This consists of two ceremonies, both held at the couple's chosen approved licensed venue, with one ceremony immediately followed by the other. The couple can walk down the aisle and make their vows in front of all their guests outside in the venue gardens and afterwards head indoors to the licensed room for the legal formalities. Or the other way around - complete the legal formalities and then hold the whole ceremony again outdoors.
AV Duo ceremonies can only be held in the buildings and grounds of approved (licensed) venues.
You will need to discuss plans for adverse weather with your venue. If the outdoor ceremony falls victim to the weather an alternative space within the venue will need to be available to hold the ceremony in front of your guests.
Please note you cannot be declared as legally married until you have completed the legal bits inside the licensed ceremony room. You must sign and return our duo agreement form to confirm you understand this. Click here to download the form.
