If you’ve just got engaged, congratulations! We’d love to help you as you prepare for your marriage.


  • If you would like to book a wedding, please contact the church office.
  • We’re committed to making marriages which last a lifetime. Therefore, in the run up to the wedding, a member of the clergy may offer wedding preparation sessions to support you as you prepare for married life.
  • A member of the clergy will also work with you as you plan your service.
  • A few days before the service, there will be a wedding rehearsal so that you know exactly what will happen on the day.
  • If you or your fiancé(e) have been married before, any subsequent marriage will be at the clergy’s discretion – they are not legally obliged to marry you.
