Marriage

The opening words to the Marriage Service says

“Marriage is a gift of God in creation.”

We would be delighted to help you celebrate your wedding

in one of our churches.

Even if you are not currently resident within the benefice,

it may still be possible for your service to take place in one of the churches.

 

You can marry in a Church of England church

if you can show that one of you:

  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months, or

  • was baptised (christened) in the parish concerned, or

  • is confirmed and your confirmation was entered in the register of confirmations for a church or chapel in the parish (this will usually be the case if you were prepared for confirmation in the parish), or

  • has 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

  • 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
