    Hey Everyone,

    I got engaged last week and Fiance and I have a few venues lined up to go and have a look at next week. We are looking to have a civil ceremony but I want to have a ceremony with a bit more meaning than a typical civil ceremony but not so much as a church wedding. This is because I am Catholic but my other half isn't so it is a nice in the middle.

    Does anyone even know if it is even possible to get a lay preacher to carry out a civil ceremony or does it have to be a registrar?

    Thanks :)

    Civil ceremonies cannot have anything remotely religious in them. Not even a reading or use of one word. They're very strict about it so you'd probably have to have a registrar who will check all readings and songs/music before the big day x
