Congratulations on becoming engaged or on planning your wedding. The church offers the most special and unforgettable way of getting married in some of the most beautiful buildings in England. We use ceremony that is rooted in tradition yet which can be tailored to include modern music and readings to make an occasion special for you. God gave us the gift of marriage in creation and the coming together of a man and a woman in God’s house brings a depth and particular blessing to your union which we encourage everyone to explore.
Please take a moment to look at the Church of England website: www.yourchurchwedding.org
Here you can see some of the options for the wedding service, click on the links to listen to wedding music and hymns and to get ideas for your special day.
To be married in a particular parish church one of you, or your parents or your grandparents should have a connection with the parish - you do not have to be baptised to be married - but simply have a “qualifying connection” with us.
If you are interested in exploring this, you may consult the “your church wedding” website (using the link above) but really the best is to contact us directly for an initial conversation.
With best wishes and again congratulations!
