Weddings at St Ann with Emmanuel Church

We are delighted that you are thinking of getting married: congratulations! You're welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church.

We want your special day to be wonderful and memorable,  and to pray for God’s blessing on you both as you make your commitments to one another.

Please contact us to find out more about getting married in the church. We would love to arrange a time to meet and talk

Do I need to live in the parish?

In order to be married at St Ann with Emmanuel either or both of you will need to satisfy one of the following conditions:

  • live within the ecclesiastical parish. You can check this by entering your post code at http://www.achurchnearyou.com/parishmap.php
  • be an active member of the congregation with your name entered
 on the electoral roll, or

  • have some prior family connection with the parish; for instance, at some
 stage either you, your parents or your grandparents will have lived and/or
worshipped here.

How much does it cost?

We charge the basic statutory fee fixed nationally by the Church of England plus additional fees which cover costs associated with the building. Without an organist the basic church fee is £502. Before you can marry in the church you will either need your Banns of Marriage to be read  or to get a Common Licence, for which there is an additional cost.
