Weddings and Banns of Marriage

We conduct weddings, blessings after a civil ceremony, renewal of vows and will offer prayers after a civil partnership ceremony. We are happy to conduct weddings where one or both have been previously married.

We enjoy working with couples to shape the ceremony to their requirements and are happy to involve others in the ceremony. Just talk to us and share your ideas so we can work with you in making the service all that you would want it to be. In the first instance couples should contact Eunice our church administrator

Banns of Marriage

Banns are an announcement of your intention to marry and a chance for anyone to put forward a reason why the marriage may not lawfully take place.

Banns need to be read in the Parish where each of you lives as well as the church in which you are to be married, if that is another Parish.

You must have your Banns read out in church for three Sundays during the three months before the wedding. Most couples try to get along to hear their Banns being read at least once. You can find out if St. Mark's is your parish church my visiting the website A Church Near You and entering your postcode. Please contact our church administrator Eunice to organise the reading of the banns.
