Find Out More About a religious ceremony
Embarking on the journey of marriage is one of the biggest steps you'll take in life. There are some things about a religious ceremony that add an extra layer of meaning to your wedding day:
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 amazing 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 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.
Church buildings offer centuries of history. You can feel you're becoming part of history itself by marrying in the same place as your relatives.
You have a good amount of flexibility when planning your ceremony, and we'll be there every step of way to advise you.
You don't have to be baptised, or a regular church-goer, to qualify for a church ceremony. 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.
