Weddings

 

Congratulations!

 

We are delighted that you are looking to have your wedding at St Mary’s.  There is something very special about a church wedding. It can be a glorious setting for a couple’s special day. The building itself has for many Hampton people many happy associations for example with school services, or Carol services. For whatever reason you have chosen a church wedding we would love to welcome you..

 

We offer a full marriage preparation programme – both for couples with a minister, and then a course taken in a group. Beyond that it is a wedding with a spiritual dimension; we recognise that God is rejoicing at this new stage of a loving relationship.

 

Can I be married at St Mary’s?

Yes, a couple can marry here if:

one of them:

  1. lives in the parish or
  2. is on the church's electoral roll

 

And yes, they can also marry in this church if:

one of them:

  1. has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  2. has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or
  3. was baptised in the parish or
  4. was prepared for confirmation in the parish or

 

one of their parents, at any time after they were born:

  1. has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  2. has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or one of their parents or grandparents was married in the parish.

 

We would be happy to talk with you to work this out – we know it is a bit complicated! There are also further issues if one or more of the couple has been divorced or is a foreign national, but please do contact the parish office if you would like to explore being married at St Mary’s.

 

We offer our in house team who have prepared flowers for many weddings and other services.  Examples of their work can be found on the wedding mini-site.

 

There is more information for couples preparing for marriage in the Resources section of this website and on this mini-site.

 

Christ's love has the first and last word in everything we do
