Weddings and Celebrations
If you would like to get married at St Andrew’s or hold a celebratory service of prayer and dedication after a Civil Marriage or a Civil Partnership then please do get in touch. We will do all we can to ensure that your special day is a very happy one and that your life together begins on the firmest of foundations.
We will help you to prepare carefully for your marriage or for your service of prayer and dedication, both with the logistics as well as emotionally and spiritually. At the Marriage service you will be invited to make your solemn promises to each other, not only in front of your family and friends but in the sight of God and with God’s blessing.
You can get married at St Andrew’s if you fulfil one of the following legal requirements:
- If one or both of you live in the parish
- If one or both of you are regular worshippers at church for at least six months and on the church’s electoral roll
- If one or both of you have some other connection to the parish such as you were baptised here, or your parents or grandparents used to worship here, or were married here.
If you are divorcedWe understand that some marriages fail and we try to help people rebuild their lives in new relationships. If you have been divorced and would like to discuss the possibility of being married a second time in church please do not hesitate to speak to one of the clergy. You will need to do this before we can confirm the booking your wedding service.
