The rules regarding weddings changed in October 2008. A person is now entitled to marry in a parish church if:

 

(a) that person was baptised in that parish (unless the baptism took place in a combined rite which included baptism and confirmation) or is a person whose confirmation has been entered in the register book of confirmation for any church or chapel in that parish;

 

(b) that person has at any time had his or her usual place of residence in that parish for a period of not less than six months;

 

(c) that person has at any time habitually attended public worship in that parish for a period of not less than six months;

 

(d) a parent of that person has during the lifetime of that person had his or her usual place of residence in that parish for a period of not less than six months or habitually attended public worship in that parish for that period; or

 

(e) a parent or grandparent of that person has been married in that parish.

 

 

Marriages where one or both of the parties have been divorced are possible.
