Please note that due to the current Covid-19 outbreak, wedding services can not be held in the church at this time. It is not known when this may change for weddings planned for this year. As soon as we know further details they will be available on the Church of England web page Your Church Wedding. If you are planning a wedding for later this year, or next year please read on for information..
Firstly - congratulations on your engagement! A very exciting time lies ahead and there is a lot to think about, and we are pleased that you may be thinking about marrying at St James church!
Marrying in church is personal, meaningful and spiritual just as you want it to be. Churches are special and unique places to get married in - the prayers, promises and the whole service of celebration become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond. Lots of people marry in their own local church, but you might like to marry in a different church because it has special significance for you through family or other connections. It’s possible there are a number of churches that you can get married in legally, as a bride and groom-to-be can marry in a church away from where they live if either of them can show just one of seven connections with the parish. Those connections are listed on the Church of England pages here.
If you would like to know more about getting married at St James, Norton, please contact our Development Worker Jo Edwards who will be able to confirm your qualifying connections and let you know how to go about booking your service with us. Please email [email protected]
