Do you want to get married in Church?
Many people like to have a traditional wedding in a Church. By choosing to get married in Church, you ask God to be included in your marriage. The service is a wonderful experience for everyone involved – especially the bride and groom. Your local Parish Priest will be pleased to talk with you or contact the Chaplain to discuss your plans.
If you have a Wedding in a Registry Office, or abroad, you could also choose to have a Marriage Blessing in a Church, either immediately after the Civil Ceremony (like Prince Charles & Camilla Parker-Bowles when they were married) or at a later time. Some people like to come to Church to renew their marriage vows when they reach a significant anniversary – 25 years for example.
Please contact the Chaplain or local priest to discuss your wishes and to find out how she can help you. All meetings are confidential, so even if you just want to talk through some of the issues involved before making definite plans, please get in touch.
The marriage ceremony gives you a new legal status and so there are certain legal requirements that must be fulfilled.
