Weddings at St Michael's Banns Application
St Michael’s is a beautiful setting for your wedding - it has a lovely cosy, family feel about it and we would be delighted if you chose to have your special day here.
There are a few important things to consider however. Firstly, the law states that you may get married in the church in the parish in which one of you is resident. Parish boundaries are sometimes quite difficult to discover, however, this website can tell you which parish you are in. If you click on the "Find Churches" link at the top of the page and type in your postcode it will tell you which Parish you are in and the churches within that parish. If that parish has a link on that site you will be able to click on it to find out more information about a particular church. St Michael’s is one church in the parish of St Peter’s Bexhill. If you live within this parish, then you may get married at St Michael’s and the next step would be to contact one of the wardens (email link on St Michael's Home Page). He would be delighted to hear from you and talk through some further details or answer any questions you may have.
One common question is “how much will it cost?”
The answer to that question is dependent on what you would like within the service.
The basic fees for the wedding service are approximately £400 (although they do vary slightly from year to year). On top of this there are fees for an organist, flowers, lighting and various other sundry fees. The average church wedding including all the above fees would be in the region of £400-£500 although as stated previously this can vary.
If you wish to discuss things further, please email [email protected] and you will be contacted by your preferred method of communication.
