Arranging a Marriage

To marry in the Catholic Church, as in any church or civil ceremony, you need to fulfil certain conditions. The four principal ones for the Catholic Church are:

  • One of you needs to be a Catholic;
  • One of you needs to live in the Parish – if you do not, then you will need the permission of┬áthe Parish Priest of your home Parish to marry anywhere else;
  • You need to give at least six months notice;
  • Neither of you can be married now or have been married before without that previous marriage having been annulled.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of marrying in our Parish, do please contact us to make an appointment to discuss your request. We are also pleased to help couples who live here but wish to marry elsewhere.
