- Wedding: March 2013
We just found out last Monday that we were misinformed (big time!) by our church’s receptionist. You see, my Fiance and I are both Roman Catholics, but i was unfortunately married before in a catholic church. Because of the misinformatoin we were told (and because i was soo overjoyed when we were told an annullmen is not necessary) i didn’t inquire much nor did i do any more research. So bottom line, we have less than 4 months to go before the big day and was told yesterday that we cannot be married in our Church because my marriage was not annulled. You can imagine the frustration i’m in since we even finished and received our re-marriage certificate from the Archdiocese last month and not once did they mention the word annullment! So now, we’re desperate to find a venue for our ceremony since our receptoin has been booked (and our invitations are ready!) I heard from someone that she knows this couple who apparently “got married in an anglican church without getting an annullment”. What’s the truth behind this? We’d love to do our ceremony in a chapel instead but most of the chapels (here) can only accomodate a limited number for guests ranging from 10-25 guests only. Can we get married in an Anglican church without having an annullment? If so, is there some sort of “coverting” to become Anglican we or one of us need to do?
