Christian marriage is celebrated before a church minister, within the church building and according to the prescribed pattern of words agreed between the church and the state. it is a legal ceremony and so certain legalities need to be observed. It is a most joyful occasion and so there will be plenty of moments for joy to spring forth during the ceremony too!
Look on the Church of England website for the legal necessities including the Qualifying Connections which you must prove before you can be married here. Contact the clergy to begin this process.
Under normal circumstances, we prepare each couple to be married here in church and use materials, exercises and insights from a number of sources to create a popular Marriage Preparation Day. On this preparation day we will help you prepare for your wedding day and also share some useful resources to enable you to remain married through the years to come!
This day is normally held in March, when all couples are invited to attend, but until we know whether we are allowed to do this, we recommend that you view the Marriage Course provided by Holy Trinity Church Brompton at: https://www.htb.org/marriage
