Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Stoke-upon-Trent and Fenton


Stoke Minster is a spectacular historic building set in several acres of greenery that has been the venue for weddings in Stoke for centuries. As part of the Church of England, with a local presence in every place, we’re here to welcome you and to pray for God’s blessing on your new life together.

A church wedding is not as expensive as couples often think it is. Churches will share with you extra charges such as for an organist to play music or a verger to clean and prepare the church, many of the additional charges are optional depending on what you want for your wedding. The basic cost of the marriage service before these extras is around £500 (2020 prices) and should be the same in every church. The Minster publishes full details of fees each year. Ask your vicar for more information.

Wherever you live, there’s a local Church of England church ready to welcome you and make your wedding day at taste of heaven. You can find your local church here or contact us and we can help put you in touch.
