Does this mean that two people currently in the UK, both on say work permit, can not marry in the UK without written permission from the secretary of state?
I hope this country does not go the same way as Denmark!

It does mean that in the sense that a non-EEA citizen will be affected by the new regulations, and if they from not come to the UK on a fiancée visa then they will need permission from the Home Office.

All this is to do with stopping sham marriages.
