Want to get married outdoors? We get the lowdown from Essex wedding celebrant Shelley Bell

Want to get married outdoors? We get the lowdown from Essex wedding celebrant Shelley Bell: Image 1 Currently in England and Wales, legal marriages can only be held in licensed venues. While some of these are outdoors, there still needs to be a permanent structure with a roof to hold the ceremony underneath. However, there are still options.

First, you'll need to head to the government website to find out how to get legally married in a register office or sanctioned building. Once you've done this, the only limit is your imagination. We can create your ideal ceremony without worrying about the legal aspect. I've conducted weddings in vineyards, bluebell woods, and national parks.

Start by discussing with your partner what you'd like your day to look and feel like. You might have an apple orchard at the bottom of your garden where you can stand under the boughs of a tree, or you may prefer to have a boho-style tipi or circus-themed marquee. Perhaps you'd prefer to just keep it simple by surrounding yourself with loved ones on picnic blankets at your home.

Once you have an idea in mind, contact me to arrange a meeting and we'll discuss how to make your dream of a personal and meaningful ceremony a reality.
