Christ Church features lovely indoor and outdoor spaces and is a beautiful setting for a memorable wedding service. Couples interested in being married at Christ Church need to know that the Anglican Church views marriage as a life-long union. The primary requirement for a wedding ceremony is that appropriate premarital instruction takes place. Generally, this means that the couple will meet at least three times with a member of the clergy, either a member of the Christ Church clergy or a member of the clergy at a parish closer to your home.
The Church requires that at least one of the couple be a baptized Christian (though not necessarily an Anglican). If either one of the couple has been divorced, at least a full year must have passed since the final decree of divorce. Additionally, the Bishop of Mexico will need to grant final approval for the remarriage, based upon the recommendation of a member of our clergy staff.
Normally the order of service used for a wedding ceremony is that in the Book of Common Prayer. Readings, music, service bulletins, and other particulars can be decided in consultation with the clergy of Christ Church. Remember that according to Mexican law the couple must also be married in a civil ceremony. This usually takes place at some time before the church ceremony, although arrangements can be made for the civil ceremony to take place on the grounds of Christ Church but outside of the church itself immediately after the wedding.
Contributions for the church and the clergy honorarium are due in the office two weeks before your wedding. Please speak with the Parish Secretary for more information.
