Weddings & Baptisms

Marriages according to the Rites of the Church of England take place in the Chapel of The Order of the British Empire located in the crypt of St Paul’s, subject to a successful application for a Special Licence granted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

In addition to the weddings of members of the Cathedral community which take place here at St Paul’s, the privilege is also extended to members of the Order of St Michael and St George, the Order of the British Empire, holders of the British Empire Medal, members of the Imperial Society of Knights Bachelor and their children (but not grandchildren).

For baptisms the same rules apply except the privilege is also extended to grandchildren. Members of the Order of St Michael and St George may have baptism services in the St Michael and St George Chapel located on the Cathedral floor.
