We are delighted that you are thinking of getting married in one of our beautiful churches.
The Church of England has a great website to help you make your plans – www.yourchurchwedding.org
In the first instance enquiries should be made of the Rector via the Contact Us tab and form. He will be able to give you all the information you need.
First you need to make sure you can get married in the parish church (i.e. you are ‘connected’):
The couple is connected if:
One of them:
1 lives in the parish
2 is on the church’s electoral roll
3 has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months
4 has habitually attended normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months
5 was baptised in the parish
6 was prepared for confirmation in the parish
one of their parents; at any time after they were born:
7 has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months
8 has at any time habitually attended normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months
one of their parents or grandparents:
9 was married in the parish.
10 they have been granted a Special Licence
If you do not live in the parish, you need to complete the Qualifying Connection Form
If one of the parties has been married before you need to talk to the Rector; there is an enquiry using this form
When you want to book your wedding we need a deposit and we also need to see your identification, usually your passport. This document explains alternatives if you do not have a passport
