If you live in the Parish, you are entitled to marry in the Parish Church and we want you to do so. Also if you have what is called a ‘qualifying or special connection’ to the Parish Church you are entitled to marry here. So, for example, if you were Baptised in this Church or your parents were married there or you have lived in the Parish for at least six months, then you have a qualifying connection.
There is an excellent web-site which will help you with the qualifying connections explained and planning your wedding:
If you have been divorced, certain rules apply but you should not assume that you cannot marry again in Church here. You may be able to do so or you may not.
Please do not hesitate to ask for further information.
