How to get married in the Parish of Cove


We're delighted that you may be thinking of having a wedding here in the Parish of Cove.

We can offer you the choice of 2 Churches: St Johns or Christ Church. Most residents of our Parish can marry in our churches, and the process of enquiry is straightforward.

In the secular world, marriage is the legal contract whereby a man and woman promise to live together and share all they have for life. Marriage within the church is similar but has a spiritual dimension. The couple entering into the marriage are publicly making vows to one another in the sight of God. They promise to love one another in any situation that may arise in their lives together.

As well as being ordinary and every day, marriage is also demanding, perilous and full of promise! We believe that proper marriage preparation is essential for any couple who wants to develop solid foundations for a lasting relationship - whether or not they wish to marry in church. We offer a free course that we will invite you to join prior to your marriage.

If one or both of you have been married before and divorced, then we would still be glad to talk with you about what is possible. Whatever your circumstances, we welcome your enquiry. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us below for any questions you may have, or you can fill out the online form below to get the process started.
