As of yesterday, 2 March, it is no longer legal for the marriages of non-European Economic Area nationals to be solemnised after the publications of banns of matrimony or on the authority of a common licence. It is essential that all clergy and anyone else involved with the legal aspects of marriage in church (including any lay persons who publish banns) are aware of the new legal position. Full details, including guidance notes from Church House Westminster and our own registry, are available here.
