England has given the world the most popular pairings— both fictional and non-fictional. No one can forget the most adored love story of Elizabeth and Mr Darcy that remains timeless. Also, the lifelong commitment of Queen Victoria to King Albert was immortalised in films and books as a testament to loving someone even after death. And who could forget the line from Notting Hill which ended all lines from other rom-coms of the ’90s? The forever memorable “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her” uttered by Anna Scott to William Thacker.
England, as a setting has witnessed many love stories. With its quaint cafes, charming bookshops, rolling hills, and picturesque castles, there is no surprise why it’s a place where people fall in love and stay in love.

England recognises civil and religious weddings.
One of the good things about celebrating a wedding in Britain is that civil ceremonies are not limited to the registered office. There is a set of approved venues to match your dream wedding. Religious ceremonies, on the other hand, include but are not limited to Jewish, Anglican, Quaker, Catholic, and Christian. Another reason for celebration is that Great Britain offers civil partnership for same sex couples.
There are various wedding venues to choose from.
As stated above, there is a list of approved locations where a couple can get married. Nonetheless, it is not as limiting as it sounds because this list includes museums, galleries, castles, estate homes, villas, zoos, barns, and country clubs, cathedrals, and other religious buildings to name a few. There is a wedding location for every wedding theme. If you’re a fan of the outdoors, you can still hold the reception and wedding photos outside, like in one of England’s romantic rose gardens.
You and your guests can enjoy the beauty of England.
England is home to popular spots as seen from films and TV shows. You can rent a vintage double-decker bus to tour your guests around the scenic spots.
