A Beautiful Setting For Your Big Day
Marrying your partner is one of the biggest decisions you’ll take in life. There are some things about a religious ceremony that make this onceinalifetime occasion extra special:
There is an undeniable spritual aspect to saying your vows in the eyes of God, which many couples appreciate.
You can make amazing vows, or promises, in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together.
Thanks to their role in the wedding, your vicar can help you create the perfect ceremony. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the Vicar, your wedding can be made unique to you, which can be very emotional and meaningful.
Many of the country's churches 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.
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 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.
