Allowed to marry at home

Couples should have the right to have their wedding in their home or parents home, as in Scotland.  A registrar is currently only allowed to marry a couple in a registered venue, including a register office.  This adds unnecessary expense, and encourages couples to add even more expenses, with the idea that a wedding day should be some sort of elaborate theatrical  spectical, rather than a life long commitment.

Why does this idea matter?

The current laws financially penalise couples and take the focus off what a marriage is.  If it works in Scotland it can surely work here.
