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.
Who to call?
In marriage you take on a whole new legal status. Your vicar knows how to advise and
prepare you for your wedding day and everything must comply with all relevant UK and
Church of England laws. The main legal points to consider before you begin planning are
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 £535 which includes the marriage fees as laid down by Parliament, the fee for the Publication of Banns of Marriage, the Marriage Certificate, and a charge of £30 which is paid to a verger to get the church ready for your wedding.
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)
