Arranging a marriage at a place of worship
Same sex couples can only marry in a religious ceremony where the religious organisation has 'opted in' to conduct such ceremonies and the minister of religion agrees.
If you are marrying in any religious building other than the Church of England or Church of Wales, you are still both required to give a notice of marriage.
Couples wishing to marry in the Church of England or Church of Wales where one or both are non-EEA national(s) are required to give their notice of marriage at a register office.
The church or religious building must normally be situated in the district where you or your partner live unless either of you usually go to worship in that building.
You may also get married in another district if there is no building of your religion in the district where you or your partner lives.
The marriage can only take place at the venue you name on the notice of marriage. If you change the venue you will have to give, and pay for, fresh notices of marriage.
If the church or religious building you are getting married in does not have its own authorised person to register the marriage, you will need to arrange for a registrar to attend. Cost is £86.00 for the marriage plus £11.00 for the marriage certificate.
If you need a registrar to attend, you should check that a registrar is available for your chosen date and time, before you give your notices of marriage.
