Getting Married at All Saints' Church

Congratulations! We are very much open for weddings but if you are not a heterosexual couple please read the section marked **** below to avoid being disappointed by the Church of England.

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 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 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?

Our Vicar, Nicky, is also going on her long-planned sabbatical from May to July 2023, then on holiday for much of August. This means that all weddings in that period will be officiated by a visiting clergy person. 

What will you pay?

If you were getting married at All Saints' Church in 2023 you would pay the following. 

£ 505 (inc. your £100 deposit) - obligatory fee

£150 Heating, cleaning, maintenance, music licensing and organ upkeep - obligatory fee

£80 Two Church Hosts - obligatory fee

£100 Organist - optional fee

£180 Bell Ringing - optional fee

All couples marrying at All Saints' 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. Please note the main ceremony fee increases every January, as will either/both of our optional fees.

****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. She can, however, now offer 'Prayers of Love and Faith' for same sex couples. If you are looking for a church setting in which to marry, we recommend you contact Harworth Methodist Church or your local Methodist Church, Free Christian 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.
