Getting married at St. Lawrence Church

God is love, and those who live in love live in God and God lives in them. 1 John 4:16

 
Getting married is perhaps the biggest decision you'll ever make, and it will affect you for the rest of your life. So if you're even thinking about it, we want to help you get it right, and for it to be all you hope and dream it could be.

 

The first step in the process is to make contact with the vicar, before making any other plans or bookings.

Contact the Vicar

A conversation with the vicar or an exchange of email can often establish if you are eligible to marry at the church.  A brief outline of this follows.

  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or

  • was baptised in the parish concerned or

  • was prepared for confirmation in the parish or

  • has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or

  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents or grandparents:
