    When we read through what our officiant had sent us it was 18 minutes so it will be that plus the time it takes for our vows and for the signing so hopefully around 25-30 mins? Hopefully not too long

    The shorter the better, ideally 15-20 minutes.

    We only have the space for 30 minutes, so it’ll be less than that!

    Roughly 20 minutes. It’s a basic civil ceremony so it’ll be short and sweet!

    We were aiming to stay under an hour (it was a religious ceremony), but it ended up lasting about 40 minutes. Knowing there was going to be a short sermon, we decided to keep things simple. We didn't have any kind of unity ceremony.

    It was supposed to be about 2o minutes. But we moved indoors part way through due to wind and rain, so by the time everyone got settled inside it was probably 30-35 minutes long!

    Between 20-30 minutes! We're not religious, so we're skipping on the religious mass, which is shaving off lots of time. We're probably skipping on readings too, or just having 1 short reading instead of the traditional 2.

    22.5.... Lol, just kidding... I have no idea. Hopefully between 20-30 minutes. I don't want a super quick, get it over with ceremony... however I don't want it to drag out. Starts at 4.30pm, planning for it to end close to 5pm.

    We are going a wine box ceremony as well.

    We are aiming for a 15 minute ceremony. We will be skipping out on the written vows straight to the "I do's". Buuuuut we may add in a pj&j or a beer or a wine aspect to it!
