Some questions with our answers
- Do I need an eTicket on the day?
No – you can simply turn up with all your family and friends on the day.
- How long have you been running?
We started the first show back in 2003 – even before any legislation was in place. Our founder believed that same-sex couples shouldn’t face the blatant discrimination that happens at opposite-sex dominated shows.
- Is it free to get in?
Absolutely – we do not charge anything to get in. As a social enterprise, we do ask for a small donation to support our nominated charities at the door. But if you do not wish to – that’s fine too.
- What will I see on the day?
We look to have a range of suppliers for your day. Please be aware that we still experience discrimination from certain suppliers more in some regions than others. If you don’t find a particular supplier – don’t worry, just let us know and we will try to help.
- Who can help me understand all the options for my day?
Our founder, Gino Meriano, has been at the forefront of campaigning to bring same-sex recognition and rights for over 15 years. He’s help the Government introduce and change legislation on the run-up to 2005’s landmark Civil Partnership Act and continues even today. He and his team will be on-hand to answer questions and just ask at the welcome desk.
- Will there be a chance to see an example ceremony?
At most of our shows, you’ll get an opportunity to experience an example ceremony from a Register Office, an Independent Celebrant or Specialist Celebrant. Check our show pages and at the welcome desk on the day.
