Wedding Information

This page gives information on getting married in Church.

A good place to find answers to your questions about church weddings is at the Church of England web site

The advice on that web site is;- 'Everyone lives in a parish and belongs to a parish church. That's the church you should contact for more information about getting married.'

However at Woburn for various reasons we have a steady stream of enquiries from couples who are not resident here.

There are circumstances where a couple may marry in a church where they do not have an existing qualifying connection

A person has a Qualifying Connection with a parish if:

that person:

  • Was baptised in the parish.
  • Had his or her confirmation entered in a church register book of a church or chapel in the parish; or
  • Has at any time had his or her usual place of residence in the parish for at least 6 months; or
  • has at any time habitually attended public worship in the parish for at least 6 months;
or a Parent of that person has at any time during that person's lifetime:

  • Had his or her usual place of residence in the parish for at least 6 months;
Those who do not have one of these qualifying connections normally gain one by attending worship at the church over a six month period. We also ask couples to attend the marriage preparation course run at the Church each January.
