Church Wedding Crisis
Hey lovely ladies
Hope anyone out there could give me any advice/help about my current situation. I recently go engaged on may 19 of this year 2014 and its been about 2 months since we've been planning our wedding and the first thing we dealing with right now is the venue and the church. However, we are indeed going through some crisis right now and is in major stressed because we have just found our perfect venue and the perfect date which would the 8th August next year. However, since the church we plan to marry is will be outside of my local area about an hours away we were asked by the priest in which we plan to marry to get a written permission from out local church where we live in order for us to be allowed to marry in the church we wanted to.
Now we have all the necessary documents needed to marry in that church however, the permission is another story. Since me and my partner do not often attend church due to work circumstances and we only go as often as we can, this church is the only church we attend and having spoken to the local priest he has now told us since we don't attend church on regular basis and hes never seen us, this church apparently is not our local parish. I was so upset by this because I thought everything was being sorted and now turns out our local parish here wont give us permission because he doesn't know us although were of local residence and we have attended the church on numerous occasions.
Im so worried since our venue is slowly occupying and im sure they cant wait for us. What shall i do, I know the only option is probably to start attending church but how long will that take? hope someone can give me advice or any help with this
