My fiance and i are planning our wedding for 2012 and may have come up against a slight hitch! Im catholic but he is not baptised nor does he follow another faith. from reading other catholic websites on line, i think we need special permission from the bishop before we can be married in a catholic ceremony. also, it seems to be that the ceremony would take place outwith mass, and so would be valid but would not be considered as the sacrament of marriage. Im unsure about this and was hoping someone would be able to give me any advice or answers! my mum told me if we marry outwith mass it would be more of a blessing rather than a full marriage, which i dont want. I’m from scotland so dont know if there’s any difference or if it’s the same across the board as it was an american site i saw the information on.
any help or advice would be !!
