Costs and Service Options

Choir? Organist? Flowers?  etc.

Click here for more information and costs. (Note these are out of date but won't have changed much)

 

Some couples want to use their own verger for setting up the church. It's not recommended - you need a friend who doesn't mind spending 4 hours working whilst everyone else enjoys themselves.

If you or your partner is a foreign national you need to talk to us at least six months before the planned wedding if you're a non EU national or 3 months if you are an EU national. The rules are the same as for a Registry Office - painful - but we are happy to guide you through the process.
