Weddings

 

If you are planning your wedding, then congratulations from us at All Saints!

We are delighted when couples choose to get married in church, and recent changes in the law make this much easier.  You do not have to be baptised or a churchgoer to get married in church, although the marriage service is of course a Christian one, in which you make promises to God, as well as each other.

All Saints provides a beautiful and intimate setting for weddings, and we enjoy welcoming a number of couples each year.

You are welcome to get married in our church, as long as at least one of you (bride or groom) has a ‘qualifying connection’ to our parish. For details of what counts as a qualifying connection, please see this helpful webpage here: https://www.yourchurchwedding.org/article/finding-a-church/. If you are still unsure whether you meet the criteria, please get in touch with us. We would glad to check on your behalf.

If you would like to get married at All Saints please contact us, ideally with a suggested date. One of the clergy will then contact you. They will need to fill in some forms with you, and will want to talk to you about your special service, and the Christian understanding of marriage.

The Church of England has its own site dedicated to church weddings, containing lots of helpful information. Go to www.yourchurchwedding.org.
