The Vicar will help you to create a personalised ceremony for your special day, and can advise you on your upcoming marriage.
Many of the country's churches offer the chance to marry somewhere truly beautiful. Old or new, intimate or grand, our 16,000 churches are some of the nation's most stunning wedding venues, with twothirds being listed buildings.
Many of the country's churches offer centuries of history. You can feel you're becoming part of history itself by marrying in the same place as your relatives.
You can personalise the ceremony to suit you. You can even use an online ceremony planner to get you started.
You do not need to have been christened and you do not need to be attending regularly to choose a church wedding.
