We are here to help you to celebrate the joyful times of life. If you are looking at this page because you are planning to get married – congratulations! We will help you through each stage of the planning process and make sure your service is personal to you. A wedding is one of the most joyful and significant events for a couple, and for such a special day, we offer a special place. You’re welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church. We would be delighted to help you to commit your lives to one another and to ask God to bless your marriage.
The process for you booking your wedding with us is this:
