Banns of Marriage

We will write to you about three months before your wedding day, letting you know when your banns are to be read in church. These are read on three Sundays at the 10:00 a.m. service. You are not obliged to hear them read, but many couples like to, and of course many families like to come and support you then.
You must arrange to have your banns read at your own parish church if you do not live in the parish of All Saints’. Please contact the vicar/s there and ask them to call your banns. They will issue you with a certificate which will cost £31.00, and which you must bring to us. The wedding cannot take place unless we have this certificate.
If you are a foreign national, you need to be married by licence, not banns, and there are other situations where a licence must be obtained. This will be discussed when you book your wedding.

Service Details

The minister who is marrying you will discuss the service with you. You can choose up to three hymns, a Bible reading, other readings, organ music for the beginning and end of the service, and to be played during the signing of the registers.
The week before your wedding you will have a rehearsal. It is essential that the bride and groom attend, and obviously it is desirable that others taking part in the service are there too.

Service Sheets

You do not need a special printed order of service for your wedding, but if you would like one, please show the proofs to the minister before you place your final order with the printer. You may find the order set out here helpful. When you calculate how many you need, please remember that if you are having the choir, they will need copies.
