Britney Spears reveals she wanted to marry in a Catholic Church but didn’t since she would have to convert: ‘Isn’t church supposed to be open to all?’
Britney Spears uploaded a post earlier on Tuesday revealing she originally desired to have her wedding ceremony in a Catholic Church.
The Queen of Pop and her husband, Sam Asghari, notably tied the knot in front of various celebrity guests at the star’s Thousand Oaks mansion earlier in June.
The singer, 40, shared a photo on her Instagram of St. Monica Catholic Church which is located in Santa Monica, California, writing, ‘I wanted to get married there.’

Almost two months following her wedding ceremony, Britney revealed where she had initially dreamed of saying, ‘I do.’
The Baby One More Time singer typed out a caption, and stated she had wanted to marry at St. Monica’s amid the pandemic.
‘This is where I originally wanted to get married during COVID!!!’ she wrote out to her 41.8 million followers.

‘I wanted to go every Sunday,’ the Toxic hitmaker continued in the caption. ‘It’s beautiful and they said it was temporarily shut down due to COVID !!!!’
Britney then explained that after two years since the pandemic hit, she aimed to wed at the church once again.
‘Then 2 years later when I wanted to get married there they said I had to be catholic and go through TEST !!!! Isn’t church supposed to be open to all.’
Instead of converting to Catholicism, which can be a very lengthy process, the performer opted to hold a lavish wedding ceremony at her mansion, with guests such as Madonna and Paris Hilton in attendance.
