With today being Video Games Day, and the world going through strange times of social distancing, it’s a great time to think about virtual reality (VR) weddings and the legalities behind them. If you can’t be together on your planned wedding day, here are a few things you might like to know about VR weddings:

1. If you’ve already booked a venue for your wedding, and the guests are eager to arrive, it will be a blow if one member of the couple cannot be there. This is where VR comes into its own, enabling the absent bride or groom to take part.

2. Virtual Reality weddings in the UK aren’t legally binding, but they’re a great way to stick to your original date, which may be important for some couples who have chosen a special date for sentimental reasons. You may want to reschedule your venue booking for later in the year when everyone can be together.

3. You don’t necessarily need a VR headset to take part in a virtual wedding. Zoom or other video conferencing software can enable long-distance linking between the couple, as well as any absent guests.

4. VR isn’t just a great way to connect people from long distances. Many couples these days are booking 360 VR videographers to film the whole wedding for posterity. It’s a truly realistic way of reliving your special moments again and again.
