Fees for weddings are to rise by 40% and the cost of a funeral service by more than half under plans backed by the Church of England.


Members of the Church of England voted in favour of raising the cost of a wedding - including the cost of banns - from £296 to £415 from January next year. The cost of a funeral service in church will also rise from £102 to £160, a 57% rise.
