Getting married in our churches
Making your marriage the best day of your life is really important to us. From the moment you contact us you until your marriage we treat each couple individually. We'll help you to think through what happens on the day including the vows you make and the music you might choose. Before your special day we'll offer you an opportunity to attend a marriage preparation day with other couples to make sure your experience of marriage is as good as possible.
We know just how much planning is involved. Please contact our Parish Office for information or look at the Church of England's website http://www.cofe.anglican.org/lifeevents/weddings/ which is packed with information.
Can I be married in this parish?
The Church of England has changed its rules from the beginning of October 2008 to make it easier for people to be married in church. Everyone has a right to be married in their own parish church but quite often people want to marry in a parish where neither of them live. They might have family living there or a special connection. If you want to know if this applies to you please check the new regulations at www.cofe.anglican.org/news/pr5008.html.
Can I get married if I'm divorced?
We recognise that relationships can end despite everyone's best efforts. Jesus made it clear that God always gives us a second chance. Our parish regularly marries people who have been divorced.If one or both of you has been married before and you are now divorced you are not excluded from being married in our churches. We are keen to support you as positively and sensitively as possible, so please call for further information.
What about a service after a civil ceremony?
We regularly offer services after a Civil ceremony or to celebrate special anniversaries. If you've had a civil ceremony and would like a service of prayers and dedication please contact our Parish Office for information.
For further information or to make an enquiry please contact any one of the clergy team in the first instance.
