Congratulations if you’re thinking of getting married in Church!
Making your wedding vows in church means that God is part of your relationship to give you strength and guidance.
We have five beautiful churches in our Benefice, many of them centuries old, all of them listed. You might even be marrying in a church where your parents and grandparents were married. Certainly you will get married in a sacred space that has seen many couples make their vows over history.
When you get married in an Okeford Benefice Church you’ll find a supportive community there for you. You will get to know the Minister and your wedding will therefore be a personal and meaningful event.
It is possible to be married if one or both of you has been married before, but this is at the discretion of the Minister. We also offer a Service of Blessing after a civil marriage and can offer special prayers for those who have entered a same sex union.
