Church weddings

New Rules published today have relaxed the strict rules governing which church a couple can marry in.

Previously, couples could only get married in a church if they worshipped there regularly, lived in the parish or applied for a special licence.

Under the new rules, couples can marry in a church where:
- One of them was baptised or prepared for confirmation;
- One has lived in the parish for six months;
- One has regularly worshipped in the parish for six months;
- One of their parents has lived in the parish for six months during their child's lifetime
- One of their parents has regularly worshipped for six months in their child's lifetime
- Their parents or grandparents were married there.
