New Marriage Regulations for 2021 - 

Please note that from May 2021 the process and paperwork for all Marriages, Civil or in Church, are changing under the new regulations which come into force this year. Briefly, this means that the paperwork is a little different, that you will be able to choose whether to name your Father,  Mother or 'Parent' on the document, and that on the day you will not be issued with a Marriage Certificate, but will need to apply to the Registrar to obtain one shortly after the date of the Wedding. The need for 'Qualifying Connections with the Parish and the publishing of Wedding Banns before the wedding will still apply.
