Congratulations – we’re delighted that you are thinking about getting married! We will do our best to tailor-make a wedding service that’s just right for you.
St Alphege is a beautiful, grade I listed building and is ideal for a traditional church wedding. Our wedding services fit all budgets, so don’t hesitate to be in touch.
Our choirs offer professional music, in the English choral tradition, for those who wish it, as well as a warm welcome to people of all ages and backgrounds.
We love taking wedding services, and we are committed to helping lifelong marriages flourish. All wedding couples take part in a preparation day with the clergy and experienced church members, exploring the meaning of marriage. Many of the participants say how enjoyable and rewarding this day is!
Since marriage is a legal ceremony, there are certain legalities that have to be met in order to get married. Anyone can get married in church, as long as they have a qualifying connection (for example, having been baptised here or a family connection, or attending regularly for six months). You can find out about this, and about the service itself, by looking at the Church of England weddings website.
It is possible for those who have been married before to be remarried depending on circumstances, following guidelines from our Bishop; so please do ask us. We can also celebrate services of blessing or thanksgiving with couples who have had a civil ceremony.
Contact the Parish Office if you want to find out more and start booking your wedding.
We will pray for you as you continue to prepare for your marriage:
Lord of love, we pray for this couple.
Be with them in all their preparations
and on their wedding day.
Give them your love in their hearts
throughout their married life together,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
