Church of England Diocese of Leeds St. Paul, Wibsey

3. BOOKING A WEDDING

To book a wedding, just give a call to the vicar or send him an email (cf. 'contact us'). You will be invited to meet with the vicar in the church at the day and time of your convenience, receive all the information you need with a complete 'welcome pack', and fill the booking form. If one of you is divorced, our vicar can accept to marry you providing to check with you that you are ready to do so.

Please, bring with you a piece of identity (by law: a passport or a birth certificate) and a proof of address for the legalities. As our church is very requested for weddings, we also ask for a non-refundable deposit of £50 to give when you have decided firmly to got married at St Paul's (within a month of the booking). The deposit is then deducted from the total of your wedding fees.

The statutory fees for getting married at St Paul's in 2020 are the same than in any parish in England: £505 (covering the reading of banns: £31, marriage service: £463 and marriage certificate: £11). You can also ask the church to provide you with supplementary options: organist, choir, special flowers. All the service can be presented on a screen for free, and a special wedding decoration can also be prepared in church for free (see the photos in the file attached).

Finally, we organise each year a 'wedding preparation day' to which you are invited to come (see the programme of the wedding preparation day, and the feed-back given by couples who come to it, in the file attached).
