You usually qualify to marry in a Church of England church if you can show that one of the persons intending to marry:
If you wish to marry by religious ceremony other than in the Church of England or Church in Wales, the Church or religious building in question must normally be in the registration district where you or your partner live.
To give formal notice you need to speak to the vicar.
If they agree to marry you he will give notice of the proposed marriage by arranging for the banns to be read on three Sundays before the day of your ceremony or for a common licence to be issued.
The vicar will perform the religious ceremony and register the marriage.
There is usually no need to involve the local superintendent registrar unless one of you is subject to immigration control.
If the religious minister is not authorised to register marriages, you may also need to book a registrar in order to register the marriage.
Please contact the ceremony officer for the area where you wish to marry as soon as possible once you have chosen the date for the ceremony.
If a registrar needs to attend in order to register the marriage, the registration will be subject to marriage registration fees.
On the day of the ceremony, the registrar will see you both in private before the ceremony to check the details to be entered into the marriage register.
You will each be asked for your full name, age, occupation, the address of your residence on the day of your marriage, the full name and occupation of your father and whether he is retired or deceased.
