Marriage by banns, licence or special licence cannot take place except in church.
I had strict orders to listen to the wedding banns, as my Auntie Win's name would be called out.
At first he refused to publish the banns of marriage between Mary and Bothwell, though in the end he yielded with a protest that he "abhorred and detested the marriage."
This would just give us time to have the banns three times, beginning with next Sunday.
This takes place as part of our regular 11am services We usually read the banns of marriage at the beginning of the service.
