From July small weddings of up to 30 people can take place in our churches, subject to social distancing and hygiene restrictions. More information is available by downloading Camelot Weddings July 2020 below. Please contact the Rector if you have any concerns about a wedding planned for later in the year.
If you are thinking of getting married and would like to have a wedding in one of the Camelot churches the Rector would be very happy to explore this further with you. The rules are quite detailed. However, essentially, if you or your parents live or have lived in the Camelot parishes for a period of more than six months then you have the right to be married here. If this is not the case, then it is possible to establish such a right through a period of six months regular (at least monthly) public worship in the parishes. Special guidelines apply to the remarriage of divorcees (which can take place in certain circumstances) and to the marriage of those who are not nationals of the European Economic Area (which requires the involvement of the civil registry office).
Further information on weddings is available in the note which you can download below on weddings in St Michael’s, North Cadbury, where most of our weddings take place. Some points in this note also apply to weddings taking place elsewhere in the Camelot Parishes, although others are specific to St Michael’s, North Cadbury. There is also much useful information on church weddings generally available at Your Church Wedding.
Your Wedding in the Camelot Parishes
1 Peter 3:7 New Living Translation (NLT)
“In the same way, you husbands must give honour to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered”.
