Weddings Policy

The Church of England has revised its regulations as to what connection is needed in order to be married in a church. The concept of a ‘qualifying connection’ has been introduced.

Couples have a right to be married in the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Holy Island providing they:

·        Are Island residents

·        Were baptized and/or confirmed in the parish

·        Have lived in the parish for at least six months at any time during their life

·        Have attended worship in St Mary’s for at least six months at any time

·        Have parents who have lived or worshipped in the parish (during the child’s lifetime)

·        Have parents or grandparents who were married in St Marys.
