Jesus Himself taught that marriage is the union of one man and one woman for life to the exclusion of all others (Matthew 19:4-6) and the Christian Church encourages couples on that wonderful journey. Here at St. Mary's we want you both to enjoy all that your future holds together under God and we believe this church is a truly beautiful setting to help enhance your wedding day. Whether or not you are baptised or go to church regularly we welcome you and want to help you make the most of this special day, and of the days ahead of you both.


There are a number of different connections you may have with St. Mary’s Church which will qualify you to be married here, in addition to you or your partner living in the parish or worshipping regularly here, and we will be delighted to offer help, guidance and advice.


All couples who wish to get married in St. Mary’s will benefit from a number of meetings designed to help with preparation for their wedding service, as well as offering practical guidance for their relationship. The Wedding Preparation Evening provided information about the wedding itself, considering both what it means to be married in a Christian service in addition to addressing practical aspects such as legal requirements, choices for readings, hymns, music, flowers, bells and so on.


The Marriage Preparation Course ran over 5 consecutive evenings, using an informative DVD presentation each week which offered a range of ideas and tools for each couple to strengthen their relationship. Coupled with refreshments these evenings were a great way to prepare for the next exciting stage in your life together!
