Marriages In Bath and North East Somerset 2013
Despite having a slightly older demographic when compared with the rest of the country, Bath and North East Somerset conducts 62% more weddings than the average for England!
Why is this?
In 1995, The Marriages (Approved Premises) Regulations were amended to allow eligible couples to marry in ‘Other Civil Ceremony Venues’ (stately homes, museums, hotels etc). As a direct result, 57% of all weddings in England now take place in such venues.
As you would imagine, this picturesque World Heritage City has no shortage of beautiful venues, and even though Bath has a higher than average population of older citizens, the local authority conducts 62% more weddings than the English average.
