It sounds lovely, as long as your guests know they are not witnessing your legal marriage, just a ceremony.

I think your plan sounds really good, actually. I think the “not seeing one another before the wedding” is silly (and a little mysoginistic in its origins) so I wouldn’t worry a shred about it … is it important to you? If not, I’d happily sacrifice that to making everything else work for you. And since the legal wedding and the wedding for the guests are on the same day, I wouldn’t even worry about telling your guests, “By the way, we already made it legal this morning …” If anybody knows about the no-outdoor-weddings-in-the-UK law and questions you, you can tell them, “Yes, we took care of the legal business at the registry office this morning so that we could solemnize our marriage in the place that we wanted this afternoon.”

I remember very little from my actual ceremony.  So much so, I remember being SO HAPPY there was a video so I could ‘remember’ it. 🙂  

I don’t think it will take away from the special-nes sof the day but add to it (by having more than one ceremony).

…won’t everyone at the outdoor wedding know it’s not the legal wedding since it’s outside?
