WeddingsWe are thrilled that you are considering All Saints Church in Laleham for your Wedding.
It is now easier than ever to get married here. You can marry here even if don’t live locally, but you have any of the following connections with All Saints’ www.yourchurchwedding.org.
The Church of England website will answer many of the questions you may have, with everything from costs to suggested hymns, and includes an online service planner. You’ll find it here: http://www.yourchurchwedding.org/
“I’m not christened and I don’t go to church. Can I still have a church wedding?”
Yes! Often people find that preparing for a wedding in church is a helpful step in their spiritual journey, and sometimes they start coming to church more regularly as a result.
“My partner believes in God but I’m not sure. Would I be hypocritical to marry in church?”
You are welcome to have a Church of England wedding, regardless of your beliefs. We would of course love to help you think through the Christian aspect of a church wedding, and making vows before God.
“We’ve got children. Can we still have a church wedding?”
Yes! And we can discuss how you might like to include your children in the wedding.
“What’s you policy if I’ve been married before?”
Different Vicar’s have different policies. At All Saints I’m afraid we won’t be able to take wedding if you have been married before and your previous spouse is still alive.
How can I arrange a wedding at All Saints?
The first step is to contact the Church Office, or speak to one of the clergy at a service.
One of the clergy to come round to have an initial conversation and to help you fill in the paperwork. We can then arrange a date for your wedding.
In preparation for the wedding there will usually be three more meetings with your Vicar
- A time to discuss all the decisions and practicalities involved in planning your service
- A time to explore and talk through the vows you will be taking together, and the meaning of the wedding service
- A rehearsal in church, usually the day before your wedding
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you.
