A quarter of all weddings take place in a Church of England church. Some couples hold a Service of Blessing after taking their civil vows in a Registry Office.
The Church of England website explains what is understood by ‘Christian marriage’, what the church service involves, and some of the legal considerations. The Marriage Measure, which came into force in October 2008, grants couples the right to marry in a church with which they have a qualifying connection. For more details go to the Church of England website.
A very useful source of information about all sorts of aspects of marrying in the Church of England can be found at Your Church Wedding with a unique online Ceremony Planner.
