Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage!
Whether you're well into the planning stage or just starting out, we want to help and support you as you prepare for your wedding and married life.
We want to encourage marriage and so you can marry in St Mary's Church if you can answer Yes to one of the following statements:
Banns are an announcement and a legal requirement of your intention to marry and have to be read out on 3 Sundays prior to the Wedding, in the church you are going to get married in and in the parishes where each of you lives. To find your parish go to the Church of England web-site and enter your post code in the "Find Your Local Church" box.
The Banns are read at the 11.00am service.
To help you prepare for married life, we strongly recommend you attend our Marriage Preparation Course.
Or you might be interested in learning more about the Marriage Service itself.
Or if you'd simply like to know more about Church Weddings in general, Your Church Wedding is an excellent resource.
