I’m not christened – can I have a church wedding?

I'm not christened can I still have a church weddingYes you can. You are not required to have been baptised at a christening, or be a regular churchgoer, to have a church wedding.

If you have a legally-recognised connection to a church and there are no other complications to consider, you can get married there.

However, you can still be baptised as an adult and if this is something you’re thinking about, get in touch with your local vicar, who will be delighted to talk to you about what it involves.
