Weddings

 

Getting married and the decision to commit to the one you love is a very important step in your life.   We are delighted when couples approach us to hold their wedding in our church.   We will do our best to welcome you and help you to plan a memorable and meaningful service.   In the Church of England, usually, weddings will take place in the parish church where the bride or groom reside.  However, it is possible under some circumstances for a wedding to take place in a church other than your local parish church.   If you can demonstrated a “qualifying connection” with All Saints (for example, having once lived in the parish;  having been baptised here or having parents who were married here) you may be able to have your wedding here.  

The parish office on the first or third Wednesday evening of any month between 7.00 and 8.00 pm at the church will be pleased to advise you.   If you have strong reasons for wishing to be married in this church, please speak to us.

IMPORTANT:  You do not have to be a regular church goer to have your wedding in All Saints.   We welcome all those who wish to have a Christian service to begin their married life together.   You are very welcome to call into the parish office, or contact the Vicar, if you want to explore whether a church wedding is right for you. 

For those whose first marriage has been dissolved, please contact the Vicar for an initial discussion before any booking is made at the parish office.  

We now run marriage preparation days which can be very helpful in forward planning.   We hope that, when invited, you will feel able to attend.

In the meantime you may care to have a look at the following Diocesan pages:

Weddings: Couples wishing to arrange a wedding are advised that, at the time of booking, a deposit of £50 will be required. This will be deducted from the final bill. Wedding fees must be paid in full one month in advance of the wedding date.

It should also be noted that, in the case of weddings taking place in a church other than All Saints and where the banns have to be called at All Saints, the fee (£41) is payable at the time of booking; the certificate will be made available after the third calling.

Due to a change in the law, people must now provide evidence of nationality when booking a wedding, either through a valid passport, or birth certificate. They will also need to provide evidence of use of names, eg, recent utility bill or bank statement. These will need to be produced when they come up to the parish office.
