Weddings

 

Here at St. Mark's we will be delighted to help you plan your wedding in our Victorian Gothic church. The first thing to do is to contact the Vicar, Revd. David Tembey on 01642 482896 or use the contact form at the foot of this page.

We will make sure your wedding day is a special occasion, and we will support you as you prepare for your future life together.

Practical matters

Calling the Banns of Marriage

The names of the bride and groom must be announced in church on three Sundays prior to the wedding.

Music in Church

Our church organist will be pleased to advise on your choice of music, be it traditional or modern.

Flowers in church

St. Mark's has a team of expert flower arrangers who are familiar with the church and will be happy to prepare appropriate displays

Church Bells on your Wedding Day

St. Mark's bell ringers can add to the occasion by ringing the church bells while you gather for photographs outside the church after the wedding.  

Photography in Church

A wedding is both a religious act and a legal ceremony - it is not primarily a photo-opportunity! Your photographer, family and friends are asked not to interrupt the ceremony by taking pictures intrusively.  There will be ample opportunity at the end of the wedding ceremony to gather everyone together and to take lots of pictures.

 

Divorced and LGBT marriages?

Since 2002, in certain circumstances the Church of England accepts that a divorced person may marry again. There may be a way forward for you to remarry in St. Mark's Church, but you will need to talk to the Vicar about this. It is not possible to offer marriages to same-sex couples at this time.

Start here . . .

Forms are available from the back of the church which is open for about half an hour before and after most services. Then please contact the Vicar, Revd David Tembey (01642 482896) to discuss your specific requirements. When completed, the form should be returned to the Vicarage at the earliest opportunity in order to reserve the date in the church diary.

A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required with the form and it goes towards the fees of £635; these fees are set nationally by the Church of England. We are happy to decorate the church with flowers and to arrange to have the bells rung to celebrate your special day. Details of the additional costs are available from the Vicar.

 

Weddings that are already booked can go ahead as planned but there are restrictions on the number of guests.

We continue to book future weddings, please ring the Vicarage
