Banns only form

Banns Only Form

This ‘Banns of Marriage Form’ has been developed by the Church of England’s Life Events team to reflect changes to marriage registration introduced in May 2021.  

It is designed for the minister or church administrator to use with couples whose banns will be read in the parish, but whose wedding will take place elsewhere.

The Weddings Welcome Form – designed for use with couples who are also to be married in the parish – is also available, combining the required legal information for the reading of Banns with helpful information to complete the Marriage Document and to support pastoral care and service-planning.

The form is available in full-colour and in an ink-friendly black and white version:
