Where can I get Married?

You can marry in a Church of England church if you can show:-

That one of you:

  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or

  • was baptised in the parish concerned or

  • was prepared for confirmation in the parish or

  • has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your grandparents or parents, at any time:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or

  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents or grandparents:

  • was married in the parish

In all cases involving church services - i.e. going to normal church services, baptism, confirmation or marriage - this applies only to Church of England services. Even if you cannot demonstrate any of the above connections, we want to help you explore whether it may still be possible for you to marry in your special church. Mariage by Banns tend to be the budget legal costs but if either partner was not born within the UK the costs might rise as Banns may not be legally suitable.

Talk to the Vicar well in advance to discuss the options open to you.
