Getting married at White Waltham Church

It is now easier than ever before to get married in the church of your choice thanks to a change in the law.   You have always been able to get married in church if either you or your fiancé(e) lived in the parish or were a member of the church.  But you are now able to get married at either White Waltham or Shottesbrooke churches if one of the following applies.


You or your fiancé(e):

  • were baptised in the Parish
  • were prepared for confirmation in the Parish
  • have lived in the Parish at some time in the past for a period of at least 6 months
  • have regularly worshipped at the church at some time for a period of at least 6 months

One of your parents:

  • has lived in the Parish at some time since your birth for a period of at least 6 months 
  • has regularly worshipped at the church at some time since your birth for a period of at least 6 months 
  • was married in the church

One of your grandparents:

  • was married in the church

If you do not qualify to get married in White Waltham or Shottesbrooke in any of these ways all is not lost!!  You could qualify to marry in one of our churches by regularly attending Sunday worship for a period of at least 6 months prior to the reading of your marriage Banns in the weeks before your wedding. 

If you have been married before, or are planning a civil wedding for some other reason, you may be able to have a blessing of your marriage in one of our churches.

Getting married in church can be relatively inexpensive compared to the alternatives.  To find out more about getting married, or having your marriage blessed, at White Waltham or Shottesbrooke Churches please ring 01628 822000 and speak to Revd David Andrew or Contact Us.
