Marriages

Couples wishing to get married at St Mary's should contact the church office on 020 8462 1373 to book an appointment to see a member of the clergy team. At least one of the couple should be resident in the parish, or on the church's electoral roll. Since October 2008 those who have other connections to the church or parish may also qualify to get married at St Mary's.

Couples are given full support in arranging their marriage service and are asked to attend two preparation sessions. These tackle questions such as, 'How can we build a strong and happy marriage?' Through instruction and discussion, we learn together how to enrich and strengthen our relationships.

The cost of a marriage in church depends on what is included, such as the ringing of the bells, the contribution of the choir and/or organist and involvement of the church flower arrangers if required, details can be obtained from the church office or the Rector (Napo John).
