If you've got engaged, Congratulations! We'd love to marry you in one
of our beautiful churches and will do whatever we can to help.
Connected with the Parish
In order to get married in church, you need to have a connection with
the parish, but in most cases, given sufficient notice, we can establish
a connection sufficient to allow you to marry here. Please talk to us
and we'll do what we can to help.
We can marry people who've been divorced
In most cases we have discretion to marry people in church who have
been divorced. If you've been divorced and would like to be married
in church, please speak to us. We always try to help. In most cases
we are able to say yes and it's also an opportunity to put the past
behind you and move on with joy.
There is a set text (known as a liturgy) which we have to say in church
in order for you to be legally married. Beyond that there is a great
scope for flexibility and creativity surrounding your wedding. Whether
you want it completely traditional or something fresh, we will help
you and give you practical advice to give you a day to cherish.
Faith and Belief
There is no requirement for you to be baptised, confirmed or indeed
for you to 'sign up' to any particular set of beliefs in order to be
married in church. Obviously God comes as part of the package with us
and all we ask is that you're open to that. If you're happy to share
the journey with us, we're delighted to share it with you.
