A wedding ceremony marks the start of a marriage. All weddings, wherever they take place, are significant. They all mark a public witness to the love that two people have for each other and a church wedding makes certain themes clearer.

Most people in the UK can be married by banns in their local church, but different rules apply to foreign nationals without the right of abode. However, it is recommended that all non-UK passport holders are married by Common Licence.

It is now also possible to be married in a church other than your parish church if one or both of the couple has a ‘qualifying connection’ with another church. You can find your nearest churches using the website A Church Near You.

If you wish to be married at Holy Trinity Wealdstone, please contact the Parish Office.

Information and advice about all aspects of getting married in the Church of England can be found on the official Church of England website: www.yourchurchwedding.org.
