You're Invited...

What: UK National Marriage Week – ‘Naked Marriage’

When: Monday 10th – Sunday 16th May 2021

Who: You and your partner

How: Pick a time in the week to focus on your relationship, have some fun and celebrate…

What's happening?

This year’s annual, week-long Marriage Week celebration and campaign is all about the essential, pared-back, ‘unmasked’, ‘reduced-packaging’ marriage and wedding!  This is what we are calling ‘Naked Marriage’.

2020 was a year of cancelled events, cancelled holidays, cancelled celebrations and a whole host of other fun things we’d planned.

So, we’d like to invite you to something that can’t be cancelled!


'Naked Marriage' is...


The ‘Essential Marriage’

Focussing on the essential elements of your relationship.

Couples across the UK:

You are invited to join in with Marriage Week by making a point of celebrating your relationship. Lockdowns 1, 2 and 3, whilst they have been tough, have brought to the surface what really matters, what’s essential in your relationship and this is worth making a fuss about with each other!

The ‘Naked Wedding’

The cost of a wedding should not be a barrier to marriage.

If you're in a relationship…

During 2020, many engaged couples, have discovered the beauty and intimacy of a small wedding – lockdown style!

During Marriage Week 2021, we’re suggesting that this could be your year…celebrate your relationship by making a definite decision about the future and proposing to your partner!
Move forward together

Calling all Faith Communities...

Can you offer a ‘Naked Wedding’ to couples in your community? 

Don’t let cost be a barrier to marriage.

I am delighted to hear of the ‘Naked weddings’ project being launched by UK Marriage Week. Many people are put off marriage by the perceived cost of a wedding and the proposal that church communities offer couples affordable wedding packages is timely and sensible.

The impact could be significant both for couples and for family life in our nation.
