Congratulations on deciding to get married!

Please get in touch with the Rector to make arrangements to have your ceremony in church.  As far as is legally possible, we hope you will be able to have a church wedding with us in one of our four beautiful country churches.

There are many ways that couples qualify to get married in church, not least attending regularly for six months.  Other ways of qualifying include if one of you lives in the parish or grew up here, or was Christened here.  You may also qualify through your parents or grandparents.  Contact the Rector if in doubt.

You do not need to have been confirmed, baptised or even be a practising Christian in order to marry in a Church of England church.

Special arrangements apply for non-EEC nationals and those marrying after divorce.  Contact the Rector to enquire further, he will be glad to hear from you.
