Abstract
In the second half of the 17th c. laws strictly outlining marriage procedure were passed both in England and in Russia. The main requirements of form and place of the wedding ceremony were fixed during the period; in both countries the process was put mainly under the control of the predominant church. Based on the analysis of legislation it can be concluded that the practices of the two countries grew more similar despite the remaining significant differences relating to the extent to which the process was centralised and formalised as well as specifics of religious affiliations of population.
