Weddings

If you want to marry in your local CofE church, visit www.achurchnearyou.com to find a church in your area, or, Click Here to see the Church of England’s 'where to find us' section.

However, we know that you might like to marry in a different church because it has special significance for you through family or other special connections. An engaged couple can now do just that if either of you can show just one of the following seven connections with the parish.

That one of you:
  • was baptised in the parish concerned or
  • was prepared for confirmation in the parish or
  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months 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
In all cases involving church services - i.e. going to normal church services, baptism, confirmation or marriage - this applies only to Church of England services. Even if you cannot demonstrate any of the above connections, we want to help you explore whether it may still be possible for you to marry in your special church. Talk to the Vicar well in advance to discuss the options open to you.

If you're marrying in a special church that's not where you live, your local church would still love to support you as you prepare for the wedding, and afterwards too.

Please contact our churchwarden Alicia Howard for more information.
