Getting married is one
of the most important and exciting steps in your life. If you choose to
be married in church, then you are seeking God’s blessing on your
relationship and we will do everything we can to help you prepare for
your special day and for enjoying the rest of your lives together. The law does not allow us to marry same-sex couples, however there are options for prayer and we would encourage you to speak with us.
To make an enquiry please come to the Church and speak to one of our clergy after the 10.30am Sunday service, when they will be delighted to help you. For Parish Register enquiries, see here.
Couples being married at St Michael’s are offered Marriage Preparation where we provide you with resources and information to discuss privately between yourselves, and take an in-depth look at the promises you will be making to each other and before your families and God. Preparation usually starts 6-9 months before the wedding date.
There are various ‘Statutory Fees’ that we have to charge for a church wedding, and more information about these, the legal formalities and the marriage preparation can be obtained by contacting the Parish Office.
Marriage after Divorce
Your Church wishes you a lifetime of love that grows and flourishes, but we recognise that some marriages do fail for all sorts of sad, difficult and painful reasons. So in certain circumstances the Church of England accepts that a divorced person may marry again, and this has been the case since 2002.
All decisions in respect of marriage after divorce are in accordance with the House of Bishops' Advice to Clergy November 2002.
