Getting Married at All Saints' Church

Congratulations! 

We are very much open for weddings and there is no limit on attendance, but we urge everyone aged 12+ to please wear a mask.

Over hundreds of years, our beautiful place of worship has seen many, many people make a fresh start in their lives and now, we invite your story to become part of our story - come and speak to us about getting married at All Saints' Church.

Your first step - and always before you book your reception venue, please - is to contact the Vicar - Rev'd Nicky Skipworth 07734 233742. Why not take a look at the brilliant Church of England website www.yourchurchwedding.org and video linked off this section?

To help avoid disappointment, please get in touch with the Vicar *before* you confirm arrangements for your reception. The Vicar will invite you over to the Vicarage for a chat. It'll take about one hour and enable you to ask lots of questions, get to know the Vicar and - if you want to - make a booking. We regret that, due to rules concerning the booking of weddings, the Vicar is unable to take bookings by any other means.

The only date we are unable to offer every year is Holy Saturday, i.e. the day before Easter Day (therefore Saturday 16 April 2022, Saturday 8 April 2023, 30 March 2024, 19 April 2025, 4 April 2026 etc.); dates in August can also be difficult - but not impossible - to accommodate due to clergy holidays. We welcome weddings on Bank Holidays and any day of the week. Ceremonies may take place at any time between 8am and 6pm and be as simple or ornate as a couple wishes. You will not be charged more for having a ceremony on a popular day of the week! And did you know we can combine a christening with a wedding ceremony?

What will you pay?

If you were getting married at All Saints' Church in 2022 you would pay the following. 

£480 Ceremony (inc. your £50 deposit) 

£90 Organist - this is an optional fee

£80 Two Church Hosts

£150 Bell Ringing - this is an optional fee

£140 Covers heating, cleaning, maintenance, music licensing and organ upkeep

All couples marrying in 2022 onwards will receive a complimentary copy of our own wedding guide, packed with information, ideas, hints and tips for their big day and beyond.

We welcome requests to pay fees by installments and can receive payments electronically. Please speak to the Vicar about this.

We very much regret that, due to a legal bar placed on all Church of England clergy by the Church of England itself, it is not possible for our Vicar, Nicky, to conduct church weddings for lesbian or gay couples. Further restrictions brought in (without consultation) in February 2020 also prevent any form of celebration following a CP ceremony, or CP conversion to marriage. If you are looking for a church setting in which to marry, we recommend you contact your local Methodist Church, Unitarian Church or United Reformed Church. Not every congregation in these denominations offers the marriage of same sex couples, but they will know the nearest congregation that does, and you might even prompt them to offer it, too.
