Academics from The Open University Law School and the University of Exeter are collaborating in a project to explore the vows, rituals, music and readings used in civil weddings.
They are inviting couples to tell them about the experience of planning a wedding ceremony.
Their aim is to help to shape the law for the future, so that more couples can have the ceremony that they want. They also plan to report their findings to the Law Commission, for consideration in any future work that the Commission might undertake on weddings.
If you have married in England in a non-religious ceremony since 1 January 2015, or have met a registration officer to plan such a wedding, please email the team.
