Getting Married

A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the main attraction for many couples thinking of marrying in a church.

It is true, too, that St Mary’s is the perfect setting for a beautiful wedding, with its glorious architecture and rich musical tradition.

Not everyone can get married there as of right, though: there are ‘eligibility criteria’ that one or other of the couple must meet first -though these are not onerous.

Use our online ‘eligibility test’ to determine if you are already entitled to marry at St. Mary’s; need to work on becoming eligible; or if more complex considerations apply.

Once you’ve determined your eligibility, fill in the on-line application form. This commits you to nothing but it lets us collect the information we need to begin the process of working towards making your wedding a special and successful event.

If completing online questionnaires or filling in forms puts you off, please don’t let it! You can instead just contact the Parish Office ([email protected] or 0115 958 2105 or use the ‘Contact Us’ form) to start discussing things, no online procedures required.
