Weddings

If you would like to be married, have your marriage blessed or renew your

wedding vows at St. Luke’s, please contact the Rev Tony, or Rev Jenny.

 

Lots of people marry in their own local church, but we know that you might

like to marry in a church away from where you live because it has special

significance for you through family or other connections. The new Marriage

Measure has now opened up the possibility of being married in this church

even if you don’t live here, if either of you can show just one of the seven

connections with the parish listed below.

 

That one of you:

  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or

  • was baptised in the parish concerned or

  • was prepared for confirmation in the parish or

  • has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or

  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents or Grandparents:

  • Was married in the Parish.

In all cases involving church services - i.e. going to normal church services, baptism, confirmation or marriage - this applies only to Church of England services. Even if you cannot demonstrate any of the above connections, we want to help you explore whether it may still be possible for you to marry in your special church.

 

Please contact Rev. Tony or Rev Jenny as early as possible in your planning, to ensure that the proposed date is free and to provide the relevant details.
