Le Mariage Anglais is the second studio album by Malicorne, released in November 1975 on the Hexagone label and distributed by WEA.


The musical arrangements are similar to contemporary English group The Albion Band, but with a smaller electric element and more emphasis on traditional Celtic instrumentation.
