Being married in church involves receiving God's blessing on your relationship. As a church community we will be praying for you as you prepare for your marriage and in the months afterwards as you settle down to married life. A church ceremony also gives you the opportunity to include hymns, prayers and bible readings in your service which you are not able to do as part of a civil ceremony.
There are certain memorable moments we associate with weddings which can only happen in a church such as walking down the aisle or walking out to the sound of bells.
There is a charge to be married in church but it compares very favourably with other venues. Our basic charge is around £549 which covers the building, the priest and the calling of banns. You can then tailor your wedding package by adding the services of our organist or bell ringers for which additional fees are payable. There are also additional fees payable if you wish to have your wedding videoed.
