Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage. Whether you're just dreaming of a church wedding, or well into the planning already we are here to help and support you. We look forward to sharing in your wedding and we will be praying for you as you prepare for this special day. It is good that you have chosen to be married in church and to involve God at the very beginning of your married life.
If you would like to be married in one of our Parishes, the first step is to contact the church office.
We will then guide and support you through the whole process, including setting the date, reading your banns, the order of service, the wedding rehearsal and the day itself! We also offer an excellent Marriage Preparation Course.
And it doesn’t end there. We would like to be there for you through all life’s ups and downs, offering a confidential listening ear, friendship and prayer support during the bad times, but also celebrating with you at special times such as a wedding anniversary, birth of a child etc. Church is not just for weddings, church is for everyday life!

If you are like most people you plan for many things in life. Most couples spend up to 250 hours planning their wedding, but very little time, if any, planning for married life. We offer a five session or two day course in which you listen via a DVD to practical talks that are informative and fun. There is never any group work and you will never be asked to share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner.
For more information please contact our Benefice Church Office.
