If you are planning to get married the best way to do so is in church in the presence of God. To say your vows "in the sight of God" concentrates the mind on the seriousness of the commitment and expresses your need for the strength and help of God in your marriage.

You can be married in church if you have some kind of connection with either St Peter's or All Saint's. For example:
+ You live in the parish
+ You come along to church regularly
+ You were christened or confirmed in the church
+ Your parents or grandparents come to church, or were married there

Both St. Peter's church and All Saints church are beautiful places to hold your wedding, take a look for yourselves. It's now even easier to organise your wedding service in church.

We believe in a loving and forgiving God and so Divorce is not barrier to being married in Church. If either of you have been divorced it's important to discuss this with the Vicar, as an opportunity to learn from the past and to move on.

Contact the Vicar as a first step in your wedding plans. For general information on marriage in the Church of England look here.
