We hope that your wedding day will be a happy and memorable one and we will do all we can to ensure that it is so.

 

 

The following information may be of help to you in preparing for the big day

Weddings can take place in church and should be arranged with the minister before making other arrangements so that a suitable date can be agreed on. You do not have to be a church member to get married in church, but it will be a religious ceremony.

You should arrange to see the minister at Vestry Hour or by contacting him/her directly (see Contacts).

 

The minister will talk to you about why you want to marry in church, what a religious wedding means to you, about the legal requirements, arrange a mutually suitable date (to avoid holidays etc) and discuss the detail of the service with you. This will be over several sessions prior to the actual wedding day.

There will usually be a rehearsal on the night before your wedding in the Church. The minister will discuss the content of the ceremony with you nearer the time and you should feel free to ask any questions and make suggestions.

The marriage schedule is your licence to be married. It is the most important thing to remember and without it there can be no ceremony. It is your responsibility to arrange this and you should contact the local Registrar of Births, Marriages and Deaths at least 6 weeks before your wedding date. The schedule Licence must be in the hands of the Minister before the ceremony can begin and it is recommended that you bring it to the rehearsal.
