It appears that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s lavish church ceremony last year may have inspired others to follow in their footsteps. Although there are fewer nuptials taking place, the number of church weddings has risen for the first time in several years, a study has found.
The Church of England could happily confirm that four per cent more couples opted for a traditional church wedding, which is probably a result of CoE making it easier for people to get married anywhere in the country.
Under the new rules, couples can marry in any parish where they have lived for six months or where their parents or grandparents got married. The Church has even set up a website to make the process easier for couples.
Are you planning a CoE wedding?
