The story of your relationship as a couple may have begun fairly recently or years ago. Either way, getting married is a whole new beginning for you, your family and others in your life.

..From this day forward..”After you are married you have a new legal status, possibly a new name and a new family unit. This changes the way others relate to you too, whether they are close to you or not.

..As long as you both shall live..” The vows that you make in church with all your wedding guests present, acknowledge that life has its ups and downs, but that you lovingly commit wholly to each other, sharing all that you have and all that you are with the other, for the rest of your lives.

So marriage means that your choices will always include another person in partnership with you, through good times and tough times. But also, you invite the blessing and guidance of a loving God into your relationship too.


Most couples are eligible to be married in the Church of England. This includes couples of mixed faith, individuals who are divorced or who don't regularly attend church, and also people who have not been baptised. You can still be baptised as an adult and if this is something you’re thinking about, please get in touch using the below details and we'll be delighted to talk to you about what it involves.
