4.1.7.4 Blessing of Orthodox Wedding By Priest

1. If members of a non-Catholic Eastern Church (Orthodox) voluntarily ask a priest to celebrate their marriage, and nothing would prevent a valid and licit celebration, he may seek the faculty of blessing the marriage from the local ordinary. The instructions of the ordinary about recording the celebration and informing the competent authority of the non-Catholic Eastern Church concerning the marriage are to be followed (c. 1116 ยง3, De Concordia Inter Codices).
