Weddings – FAQs

Here are some answers to commonly asked questions. Feel free to contact us if there are any further questions that you would like to ask or speak with the Vicar when you meet.

Q. I’m not baptised. I don’t go to church. Can I still get married in church?
Yes you can. Absolutely! God’s love and blessing is available to everyone who wishes to be married in church and not just those who come regularly.

Q. How do I book the church for a wedding?
It’s pretty easy. Get in touch with us and we’ll guide you through the process. We’ll book a time to meet with you and begin to discuss and plan the wedding. Booking the church for a particular date is all part of that chat.

Q. We’ve decided to get married abroad (or in a civil ceremony) but we would like a church blessing. Is that possible?

Q. I’m divorced. Can I still get married in church?
In the Church of England, we believe that marriage is for life, but we also recognise that sadly, some marriages do fail and that it’s important to recognise that and respond appropriately. Divorced people can remarry in church in the Benefice under certain circumstances. Each case is different and circumstances are always unique so the important next step is to speak to the Vicar about your situation.
