We’re always delighted when a couple enquires about celebrating their marriage at All Saints or Holy Trinity.
Provided neither of you has a former spouse still living you can marry in All Saints or Holy Trinity if either of you can show just one of the seven connections listed below.
That one of you:
· has at any time lived in either parish for a period of at least 6 months or
· was baptised in either parish or
· was prepared for confirmation in either parish or
· has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in Holy Trinity or All Saints for a period of at least 6 months, or
That one of your parents, at any time after you were born:
· has lived in either parish for a period of at least 6 months or
· has regularly gone to normal church services in All Saints or Holy Trinity church for a period of at least 6 months or
That one of your parents or grandparents:
· was married in either All Saints or Holy Trinity
Also, if you move house to a house in either parish then you’re immediately connected with both churches. See the Parish Boundary Map page or go to: www.achurchnearyou.com
Even if you cannot demonstrate any of the above connections, we want to help you explore whether it may still be possible for you to marry in church. Talk to the vicar well in advance to discuss the options open to you. The easiest way to get things moving is to come along to a Sunday service.
