Getting married is one of the most important events in anyone’s life. Saying “Yes, I love that person so much that I want to spend the rest of my life with him or her,” is an enormous leap of commitment for anyone to make.

Getting married in church is about acknowledging that such an important step in life needs all the support that it can get. That is why family and friends are there to support us. Perhaps more importantly, getting married in church is about asking God to be there witnessing the marriage, supporting both partners in good times and bad, sustaining and loving us both. The wedding is not an end in itself but only the beginning of a whole life together.

Any person who has not previously been married, who is not related to their intended spouse in any way (according to the laws of affinity) is entitled to be married in their parish church or the parish church of their partner. However, one or both of you must be resident within the parish in order to be married by either banns or common licence. If you would like to book your wedding, have any questions about getting married in church or marriage after divorce etc please come and talk to us by making an appointment via the parish office.
