Cathedral Weddings

A Cathedral Setting

We are delighted that you have decided to marry. No doubt plans are already taking shape and we would be pleased to talk with you about a wedding in the Cathedral.

There is so much more to a marriage than the ceremony on the day, as important and special as this is. It is a sacramental commitment with vows exchanged before God. This means that the couple enter into a deep covenant that intends to be life-long and exclusive. Love is at the heart of God’s creation and in marriage we share in that loving.

Jesus attended a wedding at Cana in Galillee and through the Holy Spirit we believe that he is present to bless your union.

If one of you has been married before, let us know and we will talk with you about this futher. There are some special rules we have to follow and we will need to see the original Decree Absolute – a copy is not sufficient. Please note, we cannot arrange a date until we have been able to talk.

Marriages in the Church in Wales can only be between a man and a woman. Under the current law, we are not entitled to conduct same-sex weddings. This is different to civil weddings.
