Christian marriage celebrates the union of husband and wife in the context of their relationship with Christ and the whole Christian family. Once you choose the church where you would like to be married, you will want to contact the parish priest well in advance of your wedding date. (Anglican weddings normally take place in church buildings. If you want to be married outside, or in another venue, you should speak to the priest.)
At least one of the couple must be a baptized Christian. If one or both of the couple has been divorced, the couple must apply through their parish priest to the diocesan bishop for permission to remarry. In preparation for the promises made in the wedding ceremony, the couple must meet with the clergy of their chosen church and are often required to take special classes with other engaged couples. Marriage preparation classes are also offered at www.marriageprep.com
For more information about weddings, please contact the parish priest at the Anglican church where you’d like to have your wedding.
