Getting married in Christ's College Chapel

wedding in progress at the ChapelThe Chapel is a beautiful and sacred location for weddings.  Since the building is a college chapel, rather than a parish church, any wedding requires a Special Licence from the Archbishop of Canterbury (rather than the reading of banns).  This is fairly straightforward to obtain, so long as you have a close connection with the College. In other words, the bride and/or groom should be current students, fellows or staff, or alumni. For all marriage enquiries, please contact the Chaplain, and she can discuss your plans with you.    

It is not currently possible to hold weddings of same sex couples in the College Chapel; however, if you would like to organise a Service of Blessing following a Civil Marriage or Civil Partnership, please do contact the Chaplain, who will happily discuss options with you.

The College can also host wedding breakfasts and evening events.  Please contact the Conference and Events Manager to discuss possible dates.
