The Church of England's House of Bishops has ruled out special services of blessing for married same-sex couples.
The idea was recommended in a report commissioned by the bishops last year.
Clergy will not be allowed to enter same-sex marriages, the new guidance added.
The first same-sex weddings are due to take place in England and Wales from 29 March, but the law specifies that the CofE will not conduct them.
The Church's official teaching is that marriage must be between a man and a woman. Anglican clergy of the same sex are allowed by the Church to enter civil partnerships, but only on the understanding that they will remain celibate.
The House of Bishops says in its latest guidance that it is not willing "for those who are in a same sex marriage to be ordained to any of the three orders of ministry [bishops, priests and deacons].
"In addition it considers that it would not be appropriate conduct for someone in holy orders to enter into a same sex marriage."
