A Beautiful Setting For Your Big Day
Getting married is one of the biggest steps you'll take in life. There are several reasons why marrying in church can make that big moment extra special:
A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. God's blessing is the main attraction for many couples, whatever their beliefs.
You can make meaningful marriage vows, or promises, in a church. These vows, made in public, 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.
Church buildings offer outstanding beauty. Old or new, intimate or grand, our 16,000 churches are some of the nation's most picturesque wedding venues, with twothirds being listed buildings.
Church buildings offer a sense of historical importance and closeness to the past. You can feel you're becoming part of history itself by marrying in the same place as your relatives.
You can be involved in making choices about your ceremony. You can even use an online ceremony planner to get you started. For some people, a church simply seems like the proper place to get married. Churches can be described as 'peaceful', 'serene', or having an atmosphere that makes marrying there a particularly special experience.
You do not need to have been christened and you do not need to be attending regularly to choose a church wedding. A complication might arise if one of you has been married before, or, if one of you is a foreign national, but there may still be a way forward. Simply get in touch and we'll be able to advise you.
