Church Weddings are on the increase
It seems that the nation was captivated by the Royal Wedding last year and it has inspired other couples to follow in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s footsteps, with the number of church weddings rising for the first time in several years.
Despite fewer marriages taking place, four per cent more couples are opting for Church of England Weddings.
The new figures show weddings in churches went up to 54,700 in 2010 compared with 52,730 in 2009 and the statistics are expected to be higher this year following the Westminster Abbey event in April.
The rise also seems to have come after the Anglican Church relaxed its rules in 2008, allowing couples to marry in any area where they have lived for six months or where their parents or grandparents were married.
