Weddings

Christian marriage is intended to help couples to continue to love each other in a way that echoes the joy and wonder of God’s love. At a wedding, bride and bridegroom promise before God and the congregation that they will love, support and honour one another for the rest of their earthly lives, in good times and bad. To help them as they begin this way of life, they receive God’s blessing on their marriage and the assurance of ongoing support from the Church, their families and friends. Prior to the wedding, couples are offered several sessions of marriage preparation.

It is possible to be married at St Francis if you or your partner has one of the following connections:

  • You live in the parish
  • You have at some stage regularly attended worship in the church for at least six months.
  • You have at some stage lived in the parish for at least six months.
  • You were baptised or confirmed in the church.
  • Your parent(s), in your lifetime, have lived in the parish for at least six months.
  • Your parent(s), in your lifetime, have regularly attended worship in the church for at least six months.
  • Your parents or grandparents married in the church.
  • Re-marriage in church after divorce is permitted in the Church of England at the discretion of the parish priest.

It is also possible to receive a blessing in church following civil marriage, or to have a service at which wedding vows are renewed, perhaps to mark a significant anniversary.
