Weddings

St Peter & St Paul is a beautiful and prayerful setting for your wedding service. And we delighted that we are again able to arrange weddings at St Peter and St Paul’s Church .  But as you will know, weddings must follow the Government’s regulations and guidance to maintain Covid safety.

Every wedding day is a special one, a day to remember always.  We will do everything that is possible to make your Wedding day every bit as memorable, meaningful, and special as possible, while doing our best to keep everyone safe.   We understand however, that you may wish to delay your service until a later date, when, hopefully, the situation will have improved. We will be happy to discuss this with you.

To keep us all safe, it is necessary to limit the numbers attending your wedding, in accordance with Government guidelines  and at St Peter & St Paul, this means up to 30 people including the couple, the witnesses, and guests.

While there are certain legal elements which are required cannot be dispensed with, we are advised that the service should be ‘kept concise while still consistent with the nature of the occasion’. Again, we will be pleased to discuss all this with you.

Where applicable, Banns will be published at the principal Sunday morning service.  For weddings to be held later this year and into the future, and quite separate from anything to do with Covid regulations, the legal requirements that have to be followed for weddings have been changed by the Government.  We will explain what these are when arranging your wedding.

The regulations and guidance for face coverings and social distancing have to be followed, and we ask everyone to use our hand sanitisers.

If you are planning to marry this year or next, please be aware that Government Covid restrictions are subject to revision and change; it may not be possible to have your service on the day you intend. Please check this page regularly for the up to date situation.

To discuss and arrange your service or to answer any questions, please contact The Revd. Stephanie Stroebel on 01702 200901
