|A gay wedding in the UK usually involves a civil-partnership agreement and a commitment ceremony.
For a gay "marriage" to be legally binding, there MUST be a civil partnership agreement.
There is no legal requirement for a commitment ceremony.
A civil partnership is formed once both individuals have signed the official partnership document.
This must be done in the presence of a registrar and two witnesses.
The rules regarding registering a civil-partnership are fairly complex -
especially if you plan to get "married" outside the area in which you live. For full information click here.
A commitment ceremony can be conducted without a civil-partnership agreement but it will not be
legally binding and will not entitle you to any of the benefits of a legal civil-partnership.
