Congratulations on your engagement. We’re thrilled that you’re thinking about getting married in church, and want to offer you a deep and meaningful ceremony at the centre of your wedding day, with wonderful music, in a beautiful, holy place, where couples have made their marriage vows in the heart of the village for hundreds of years.

Bride & Groom outside Guilsfield Church“I, name , take you, name, to be my husband/wife,
to have and to hold from this day forward;
for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish,
as long as we both shall live,
according to the will and purpose of God.
In the presence of God I make this vow.”

At a Church in Wales weddings the vicar acts as the registrar, and in most cases the church can deal with all of the legal requirements “in house” either by banns or ecclesiastical licence. This means you don’t usually need to contact the county registrar.

Further information on who can be married in church and other queries can be found here; if you still have any questions, please contact the vicar, Caroline on  01938 554245
