Weddings

Weddings and civil partnerships in SheffieldUpper Chapel is registered for weddings and equal marriages.These can be arranged via the Chapel staff and the format can be according to the wishes of the couple, in discussion with the person who is to officiate. The formal vows must be spoken in the hearing of the Chapel Authorised Person who, on behalf of the Registrar, will complete the Marriage Register,  witness the signatures of the couple and their witnesses and issue the Marriage Certificate.

Each Unitarian wedding is unique because each couple has unique beliefs and aspirations about what they are doing. Unitarians have been at the forefront of campaigns for same-sex marriage. If the ceremony is really to mean something, then it is essential that it reflects what the couple really feel. In preparing for it, the couple are encouraged to talk and think very seriously about what they want for the ceremony and for their continuing life together.

We help those planning their ceremonies to make it an occasion that is unique to them. Part of that can include couples choosing and even writing their own vows. Nothing is imposed that the couple do not want or cannot say in all sincerity (provided that certain legal requirements are met). The Minister, or celebrant, is ready with advice and guidance.
