If you have children

If you have children

You are welcome to church for the wedding of your dreams - and if you have children we welcome them too.

In fact, one in five couples who come to church for a wedding already has children, together or from a previous relationship. 

The Church of England always welcomes children. For weddings they can walk up the aisle with mum, carry the rings, read from the Bible or say a prayer, and receive a blessing with mum and dad.

But did you know the Church of England has two church services to further include and involve your children in your wedding day?

Marriage and Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child is ideal if you wish to celebrate your wedding and thank God for the birth of your children on the same occasion.

Marriage and Holy Baptism can make it possible for you to have your children christened - welcomed into the wider church family - on your wedding day.

Why not talk to the Vicar about the options? He will be able to advise about which service could be best for you.

Both of these services offer the whole of your family an extra special occasion and a new beginning.
