Beauchief Abbey offers weddings for couples who wish to marry.

Because the Abbey is a Liberty the usual parish arrangements do not apply. A special license from the office of the Archbishop of Canterbury is sought for weddings at the Abbey where the couple are members of the Abbey congregation.

For couples who are not members of the Abbey congregation it may be possible to arrange a church wedding service that takes place after a marriage by civil ceremony.

What is special about a church wedding?

Marriage at the Abbey is a ceremony in which wedding vows are made in a place that has been witness to Christian tradition for over 800 years. We invite all our visitors to reflect on their lives in the sight of a loving God revealed in Jesus Christ. Many people have found the Abbey an inspirational place to begin the new relationship of marriage.
