The marriage law of England and Wales is very specific and restrictive.
Currently the law states that a marriage ceremony:
May only take place between the hours of 8a.m. and 6p.m.
The legal declarations may only be officiated by a Minister of Religion, an appointed ‘responsible’ person for a non conformist religion, or a Superintendent Registrar for a secular ceremony
Must take place in a room that has been approved and licensed accordingly

The structure must be permanent and immovable ( no moving boats, aircraft, hot air balloons or marquees etc).
