If you’d like to be married in church, then we’re here to help!
Marrying in church is meaningful, spiritual and beautiful - just how you want it to be.
Can I get married in church?
You're welcome to marry in the Church of England whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are christened and regardless of whether you go to church or not. It's your church, and we welcome you! We are here to help you prepare for your wedding day.
There are some legal requirements that need to be met in
order for you to marry here (see below); we will say ‘yes’ to
you if we possibly can!
We have churches in Tring, Aldbury, Puttenham, Long Marston and Wilstone. If you live within the Tring Team Parish you are able to get married in any of our five churches. The first thing to do is to call or email the minister responsible for the church in which you would like to be married. If you are not sure which church you would like to use call anyone of us and we can help advise.

Same Sex Marriage in the Tring Team Parish
We are dleighted that we are now able to offer blessings for same sex couples. Currently the Church of England is not legally able to offer same sex marriages. This is a sadness to the worshipping community in the Tring Team Parish, and we are sorry that we are prevented from offering this. We engaged fully with the Church of England's Living in Love and Faith consultation and locally there was strong support from our church community for same sex marriage.
We are fully committed to offering marriage blessings for all, irrespective of sexuality. Please call us to speak to us about what is possible. We are also committed to campaigning for change in the life of the wider church.
Below are a number of downloads which might be helpful in planning your weddings.
We will give these to you as paper pack when we meet you.
(NB we have fewer weddings in Wilstone and Long Marston so we don't have a leaflet for those churches)
We try and keep the cost of your wedding as low as possible, and if cost is a problem please talk to us. The basic wedding cost is £569 which includes the marriage fees as laid down by Parliament, the fee for the Publication of Banns of Marriage, and a charge of £30 which is paid to a verger to get the church ready for your wedding.
