Weddings

We’d love to welcome you to one of our churches for your wedding day.

A church is so much more than simply a venue for your wedding. It’s a spiritual, personal and beautiful ceremony in a place where people will pray for you before, during and after the big day. You’ll say ancient and amazing vows that you can only make in a church, in a place that connects with your history and could become part of your future story too.

Legal requirements

The law requires that at least one of those to be married should:

  • Live in the parish where the wedding is to take place, or
  • Be a regular worshipper in the parish and have your name entered on the church electoral roll, or
  • Have a ‘qualifying connection’. A ‘qualifying connection’ as described in the Marriage (Wales) Act 2010 is that you were baptised or confirmed in the parish, that you or a parent formally lived for at least six months in the parish, that you or a parent formerly habitually attended worship in the parish for at least six months or that a parent or grandparent had been married in the parish.
