Wedding Procession at St Mark's

Getting married in church is a great occasion for a couple to celebrate their love and commitment to each other among family and friends, and to receive God's blessing on their life together.

Planning a wedding is a major event, so our committed team at the ‘Wedding Office’ are there to help. They’ll provide guidance on all those many practical details, from booking the date to choosing the music.

Of course marriage is much more than the wedding. Between booking and the wedding taking place the Clergy will help to prepare you, for everything you will need, by exploring different aspects and expectations of marriage, in a relevant and informal way.

The rules governing marriage in church are quite complex but essentially if you or your partner live in the parish and have not been married before, you will be able to be married at St Mark’s. To get the process underway contact the Parish Office to book a first appointment with the Wedding Office.

If you’re not sure whether you live in the parish you can use the Parish Finder to find out. 

Where both parties live outside the parish it may still be possible to be married at St Mark’s if there is a strong personal or family connection with the church. Here, or where there has been a previous marriage, you will need to contact one of the clergy to talk through what might be possible.

Whatever your personal situation it’s important to put this great adventure of marriage into a spiritual context, so we encourage all couples to come to church as often as they can in the lead-up to their wedding day. We look forward to seeing you!
