Religious weddings

Church of England weddings

If you wish to be married in the Church of England speak to the vicar of the church in which you wish to marry. There is usually no need to involve your local register office.

Catholic and other religious weddings

If you wish to have a religious ceremony other than in the Church of England, you should usually:

  • Arrange to see the person in charge of marriages at the building.    
  • Live in the same district as the church or religious building.    
  • Give formal notice to the superintendent registrar at your local register office unless one of you is subject to immigration control.

You will need to bring at least two other people who can sign as witnesses at your wedding.
