Whether you’re dreaming of a Church wedding, or are well into the planning...

Our Church wants to help and support you.

 

Why Marry in Church?

Wedding RingsThere are some things about a church wedding that you just can’t get anywhere else.

 A church wedding includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the most important element for many couples, whatever their beliefs.

You make special vows, or promises. You can only make vows this big in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.

Wedding PictureThe Vicar has a very particular role to play in your wedding. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the Vicar, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.

A marriage in church acknowledges God and asks for his help in sustaining the relationship. It’s more than just legal. It's one of the days in you & your beloved one’s life that will be remembered long after the images in the photographs seem to be different people.

 

You can marry in a CofE church if you can show:

  • You have at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  • You were baptised in the parish concerned or

  • You were prepared for confirmation in the parish or

  • You have at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

  • That one of your parents, at any time after you were born has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or

  • That one of your parents has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

  • That one of your parents or grandparents was married in the parish

And did you know that if you move house, you’re immediately connected to the church there? That means you can marry in the church of your new parish.
