Jesus said, “But at the beginning…God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” [Mark 10:6-9]

Christian marriage is one of God’s greatest gifts to people, and we want to do everything we can to make not only your wedding day, but also your marriage, very special.

Under United Kingdom law there are some legal requirements that have to be dealt with before we can marry you, and we hope that the information on this page will guide you through them, help you in your planning, and explain everything you need to do to arrange a marriage in one of our churches. 

Note, if you are just visiting this page to arrange for banns to be read for a wedding in another parish, you can go straight to the banns of marriage topic below.
