O.U. Researcher Dr Stephanie Pywell, a Senior Lecturer in the O.U. Law School, called for changes to regulations around civil wedding ceremonies.
She conducted research into a number of areas related to civil weddings - including the "two plus two" ceremonies.
Her findings concerning these ceremonies, which were recently published in the Law Society Gazette, reveals that there are currently insufficient times available for the number of couples who wish to have the basic ceremony.
According to Dr Pywell there is now an opportunity for change and she urged the Law Commission to consider this issue.
At a time when a massive backlog is building I agree that this is an issue that should be address. My own experience has shown that many couples are postponing their plans in the hope that they will be able to have the day they planned in the future.
