Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting things a couple can do, and we are delighted to help as much as we can.

If you are interested in getting married at St Peter & St Paul, please contact Carol Walters  (Parish Administrator) on 07945 026829 or by emailing enquiries@peterandpaul.org.uk

There are legal restrictions on who can get married in churches. Anyone who lives within the boundaries of the parish is welcome to have their wedding at the church. However, if either party has been previously married, you will need to have an informal interview before definite plans can be made. It is also possible to be married at Ss Peter & Paul if you have what is called a “Qualifying Connection” to the parish. You have such a connection if you:

  • were baptized in the parish (which could include St Michael’s, or even the General Hospital)
  • were prepared for Confirmation by the parish
  • have ever resided for at least six months in the parish
  • have ever habitually attended worship in the parish for at least six months
  • have or had a parent who ever resided for at least six months in the parish
  • have or had a parent who ever habitually attended worship in the parish for at least six months
  • have or had a parent or grandparent who were married in the parish
