Getting Married

If you are planning on marriage, and wish to hold your wedding in one of our churches, or you wish to have your wedding vows (made in a Registry Office) blessed in a Service of Blessing, please contact the Priest in Charge, Julie Anderson.


If you are considering getting married in an Anglican church, and want to know what is involved, then please take a look at The Church of England’s website which explains what is understood by ‘Christian marriage’, what the church service involves, and some of the legal matters you should consider.

A very useful source of information about all sorts of aspects of getting married in the Church of England can be found at Your Church Wedding. This site also has a very useful wedding ceremony planner.
