|St Gregory’s is here for all the significant
occasions in your life. A wedding is very much one of these and we
will be very pleased to hear from you if you are considering getting
married. We have a Marriage Booklet which you can download at the
bottom of the page and you can telephone for an initial chat. You
may also find the Church of England website helpful -
Getting married is probably the most significant decision a
couple will make in their lives and we want to ensure that that is
reflected in the planning and preparations for your wedding day. We
can guide you in the initial stages as you plan the service itself,
but always remembering that it is your wedding. Whether you want to
be “traditional” or “creative” (or both) we can talk though the
possibilities with you.
We hold an annual “wedding day” at
the beginning of January for all couples to come and meet the
organist, flower co-ordinator, bell captain, verger, as well as the
clergy and to explore the possibilities for your service. The clergy
can let you know the date for next year. Please note that we do need
to ensure that you legally qualify to get married at St Gregory’s.
You will need to have what is known as a “qualifying connection”
with the church, which includes your residence in the Parish, either
currently or in the past, your parents residence in the Parish, or
certain other family links such as baptisms, weddings etc. We can
advise you in detail about this. It is also possible for couples to
marry at St Gregory’s if one or both parties have been married
before. Just contact either of the clergy for advice about this.
The church is also available for other celebrations such as a
Service of Blessing or Renewal of your Wedding Vows, on a
significant wedding anniversary (they are all significant aren’t
We look forward to hearing from you.
Gregory Webb & Revd Helen Mitchell
