The Church of England offers three Marriage Services:
|1662 Book of Common Prayer: In traditional language|
|1966 Book of Common Prayer: A modified version of the Book of Common Prayer service, (1966) as one of the Alternative Services: Series One|
|Marriage Service from Common Worship 2000: in modern language, and reflecting the current Christian understanding of marriage. The Common Worship marriage service offers the most flexibility in the choice of readings and prayers, but in all three, you can be involved in choosing hymns and other music, for the service.|
