You can marry in a church!
You’re welcome to marry in the Church of England whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are christened and regardless of whether you go to church or not. It’s your church, and we welcome you!
(A complication will only arise if one of you has been married before, or, if one of you is a foreign national, but there may still be a way forward. Read more about marriage after divorce or advice for foreign nationals.)
See more about why people choose church for their wedding:-
It is your Vicar’s duty to marry you, but also their privilege. When you choose to marry in a church, you are the hosts and the church is your guest. If you invite us to be part of your wedding, we would be delighted to accept.
And for such a special day, we offer a special place.
