Will 28x700c tyres fit rims for my Boardman hybrid comp

So I recently bought a Boardman hybrid comp (link below) and have done less than 300 miles on the thing before getting a puncture. I'm going to replace both tyres with Schwalbe Marathons (link below) as I have used them before and find them pretty awesome a preventing such incidents. Id also like to reduce the tyre width from the 32x700C down to 28x700c but I am worried they won't fit the rims properly and don't really know about bead sizes or anything like that.
Any help would be awesome :)

    The internal rim width is suitable for 28 mm tyres on the stock rims.

    Tell the stars I'm coming,
    make them leave a space for me;
    whether bones, or dust,
    or ashes once among them I'll be free

    The rims take the 28 fine. The 28's I use actually come up a little narrow on the narrow rim. If your preferred tyre comes in a 32 then I would stay with that size. More volume means you can run them at lower pressures than the equivalent tyre in 28 which will give you a bit more comfort. In either case, the rims are no cause for concern.
