They could marry in both religions to get around that, perhaps?
Not sure this can work. And they would still need a "permission" (whatever it means exactly).
Also, weren't Catholic ceremonies forbidden in England at this time? Sure they can perform a Catholic marriage in France but I doubt Elizabeth would dare to go there. And her Protestant ministers would be furious.

As far as I'm aware, they were NOT forbidden because there were Catholics in England at the time.
 
Are diehard protestants even a majority at this point in time? I was under the impression that most people didn’t really care about the different between Catholicism and Anglicanism.
