For your special day, a church offers more than just a venue – it's a place where God's blessing enriches your union. Regardless of how religious you feel, whether you attend church regularly, are christened, or have budget concerns, we invite you to explore a church wedding with us.

Our team is committed to helping you personalize your ceremony. We offer suggestions on hymns, readings, and unique touches that reflect your relationship. Our support continues throughout your planning, including decision-making, rehearsals, and preparation for the day itself.


Banns of Marriage need to be read out three times in Church at Sunday morning services. We encourage couples to attend services when banns are to be read.
