Church of England Diocese of Manchester Saint James, Hope

Getting married in church

We are delighted to conduct weddings in any of our two churches and enquiries are always welcome.

You can be married here if you live in any of the parishes of the benefice, if you have a connection with any of the churches through being christened or your parents or grandparents being christened or married here.

If you do not have a connection in this way you would need to attend a church service six times before your wedding.

The fees for a wedding are around £650 and this includes all the legal paperwork. You would not need to go to a registry office.

If you are divorced, remarriage is possible in church. In either case please speak to the Vicar first before booking your wedding. Please contact Revd Gareth Thomas directly on 0161 925 0059, email [email protected] or use the ‘Get in touch’ button.
