Weddings and Wedding Blessings

Weddings

Welcome to our wedding page.  If you are planning your wedding and wish to find out more about marriage in church we would be happy to help.

The rules on church weddings have relaxed in the last few years – 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 in the parish concerned or

•        was 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

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.

The church of England also have a great website that will help you to plan every detail of your service – www.yourchurchwedding.org.

If either of you have been married before we are also happy to discuss your options, many of those we have married have been married before, but it really does depend on your circumstances – if we cannot actually marry you, we may be able to help you celebrate with a blessing service (see details below).

We hope that we can give you a real day to remember, in a beautiful setting with a personalised church service.

If you would like to find out more, don’t hesitate to contact us.
