Choosing to get married in church is such a great idea but, it does mean so much more than choosing a nice setting and a traditional look on your photographs. It means that you want God to some way be a part of your marriage and your future together.

- A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the main attraction for many couples, whatever their beliefs.

- You can make amazing vows, or promises, in a church. You can only make vows this big in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.

- The minister has a very particular role to play in your wedding. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the minister, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.

- Church buildings offer outstanding beauty. Our churches are over a thousand years old and makes a stunning wedding venue.

- Church buildings offer centuries of history. Imagine all the couples who have married in your local church, some of whom may well be your family. You can feel you’re becoming part of history itself, the bigger plan, by marrying in the same place as your relatives. We know these sorts of connections can make your day even more special.

- You can be involved in making choices about your ceremony. You can even use our online ceremony planner to get you started.

- For some people, a church simply seems like the proper place to get married. Churches can be described as ‘peaceful’, ‘serene’, or having an atmosphere that makes marrying there a particularly special experience.

- And after your wedding, you’ll realise that a church is more than simply a wedding venue, but a place to bring your children for baptism and a place for you to grow as a family.
