A marriage in a church, or other religious building
If you are getting married in a Church of England you should make all of the arrangements with the minister at the church. Banns will usually be called but, if they are not called, it is necessary to give notice of marriage by Certificate without Licence in the district(s) where you both live.
If you are getting married at any other religious building which is registered for marriages (e.g. Methodist, Baptist, Sikh, Muslim, Roman Catholic etc) you must give your notice of marriage.
It is normally only possible to be married in a religious building which is located in the district where one or both of you live. You may, however, marry in a religious building in a district where neither of you lives if you can testify that it is your usual place of worship.
The religious building will usually have a person appointed to register your marriage. If this is not the case you must confirm with the Register Office of the district that they have a Registrar available to register your marriage.
