Ed Sheeran has applied for permission to build a private chapel on his estate in Framlingham.
The Suffolk singer announced his engagement to Cherry Seaborn in January.
A decision on the proposed Saxon style chapel is expected in April.
The application states there is a need for the chapel as "it is every person's right to be able to have a place of retreat for contemplation and prayer, for religious observance, celebration of key life and family milestones, marriages, christenings and so forth".
Ed Sheeran has been named the world's best selling music artist of 2017 and is also the only artist from the UK in the top ten.
The singer who was raised in Suffolk had a hugely successful 2017 which saw the lead single from his album, Shape Of You, spend 14 non-consecutive weeks at Number 1. He topped the charts in a further 42 countries.
The album ÷ went on to sell 2.7 million copies with 672,000 of them coming in the first week.
