For months I sat and planned the perfect proposal to ask my girlfriend to marry me. I'm talking about flash mobs, kittens, brass bands - the whole bloody shebang. Forget being over the top, it was the perfect engagement, and I was thrilled to say yes.

Yes, but not every church. It depends on your religion and if you want a civil marriage you will need to find a church that is no longer used for religious purposes and is licensed by the local Registrar. If you follow one of these religions you are in luck and will be able to have your lesbian marriage ceremony in a church:. Unfortunately, the most popular Christian religions in England, Catholic and Church of England, do not allow same sex weddings and they also own the most impressive churches and cathedrals. However, the Church of England will bless a gay marriage, so you could have a minimalist civil wedding at the Register Office and then a blessing in a church.
