I think for a civil ceremony, there is something about it having to be a building - so football stadiums for example don't count, as it can't be open air. Of course you can always do the registry bit and then go for a blessing on a boat....

Or you could get a ship's captain to marry you (to each other, not to him) but that has to be outside the 12nm territorial limit.

Have fun!

Simon

The short answer is No. due to this clause:-
3.2. The term "premises" is defined in Regulation 2(1) as a permanently immovable structure comprising at least a room or any boat or other vessel which is permanently moored. Any premises outside this definition, such as the open air, a tent, marquee or any other temporary structure and most forms of transport, would not be eligible for approval. In addition, there are requirements in Schedule1 that must be met before an approval can be granted.
The full regs can be found here http://www.bedfordshire.gov.uk/Advic...ovedVenue.aspx

The regulations are going to be modified and relaxed but that wont happen for a few years

Simon,

Thanks for the info.

This is something we are seriously looking at, crazy as it sounds, but why not!!

Do you (or anyone else) know a ships captain who would do this for us.

Yes you can then

Don't see why not, surely as long as the right people are present? Down here, folks have got married on mountain tops so I don't see a boat should be any different.

Ged,

Do you know how they went about it (approved, legal)?

was it 12nm off shore (under maritime law)?
