Getting Married in Church


If you are just starting to think about a church wedding at St Peter & St Paul we want you to know that we’re with you every step of the way!
Marrying in church is personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful, just as you want it to be. We’re committed to working with you to make your special day a unique and memorable occasion, a service filled with love, faith and beauty.
Our commitment to you begins from your very first contact with us. We suggest you contact us sooner rather than later as there are some important initial legal and practical checks that need to be made like eligibility to marry (the law says that not everyone is allowed to marry at St Peter & St Paul) and church availability.
To make your service even more special we strongly recommend you worship with us on a Sunday, not just when your banns are being read but as often as you are able. This will help you feel more comfortable in the church space, it will help aid your understanding of the words you will say to one another and it will help build a great relationship between you and the minister who will take your service.
