Your church wedding
Embarking on the journey of marriage is one of the biggest decisions you'll take in life. There are some things about a religious ceremony that make that big moment extra special:
Getting married in a church will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. God's blessing is an important factor for many couples, whatever their beliefs.
Your wedding vows, made in a church, will help you to stay together and grow together.
The Vicar will help you to create a personalised ceremony for your special day, and can advise you on your upcoming marriage.
