In the first instance enquiries should be made of the Rector via the Contact Us tab and form. He will be able to give you all the information you need.

First you need to make sure you can get married in the parish church (i.e. you are ‘connected’):

The couple is connected if:

One of them:

1  lives in the parish

2  is on the church’s electoral roll

3  has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months

4  has habitually attended normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months

5  was baptised in the parish

6  was prepared for confirmation in the parish

one of their parents; at any time after they were born:

7  has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months

8  has at any time habitually attended normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months

one of their parents or grandparents:

9 was married in the parish.

Or:

10 they have been granted a Special Licence

If you do not live in the parish, you need to complete the Qualifying Connection Form
