Getting married?

Finding a venue is an important part of planning for a wedding, but choosing your local church means so much more than just getting married in an historic building.

Weddings in the Church of England are an opportunity to make a commitment to your partner
 in the presence of your friends and family and before God. You will also have the support 
and guidance of the church minister as you prepare for your big day.

Marriage Preparation

As part of our commitment to strengthening marriages, the Five Alive Mission Commuity offers a ‘marriage preparation’ session.This gives practical help and encouragement to couples who areplanning to be married and is a great opportunity to spend time talking with your partner about your life and relationship. Sessions are usually arranged so that you don’t have to discuss things with anyone other than your partner if you don’t want to.

Getting married in church

If you are interested in getting married in one of our five churches, please fill in the form you can find through the below link and have a look at the notes that are here. Once the form has been filled in, we will be advised and be in contact shortly! Just like reception venues, churches can get booked up a long way in advance, and it is also necessary to make sure that a minister is available to take the marriage ceremony.

You are entitled to get married in your parish church or a church which you attend regularly. You may also be able to get married in another church with which you or your family have a strong connection.

In the Church of England, there are certain fees that are for each wedding - you can find the current up to date list of our fees here. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to be in contact. 



Some weddings that are not held in a home parish will require Banns to be read in their home parish as well as the church where the wedding in taking place, if this is you, please do fill in the attached form.
