Footballer tries to get a Humanist wedding which is legal without a civil ceremony

Laura Lacole, a model, is marrying the Leeds United and Republic of Ireland midfielder Eunan O’Kane in Northern Ireland next month. The couple, both humanists, want a ceremony that reflects their beliefs, but the only legal options available to them are a religious or civil service. They have taken the case to the courts because they say it is discrimination under European laws protecting freedom of belief that as Humanists they’ve got to have a civil ceremony to make their humanist wedding legal. It is quite a big news story in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and a landmark case for Humanists wanting to get married there.
