Holy Matrimony

Wedding flowersIf you are looking at this page because you are thinking about getting married, first please accept our congratulations on your engagement! Christian marriage is a joyful and demanding commitment. Be assured of our prayers for all those preparing for marriage.

We would be thrilled for you to get married at Little Saint Mary's. You can be married at LSM if you live in the parish, if you are a regular worshipper with us (regular is defined as more or less weekly for six months) or if you have a 'qualifying connection'. A qualifying connection is any of

  • You were Baptized in the parish
  • You were Confirmed in the parish
  • You have ever lived in the parish for at least six months
  • A parent or grandparent of yours was married in the parish
  • A parent of yours lived in the parish for at least six months during your lifetime
  • A parent of yours habitually attended public worship in the parish for at least six months during your lifetime

See our scrollable map for details of the parish boundaries (click again on the image to enlarge). A qualifying address is anywhere enclosed within the red line.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you're not sure.

We take the care of wedding couples very seriously; the parish priest will meet with you several times before the day to help prepare you for marriage and also to sort out the practicalities of the service, including the music, readings and flowers.

If either of you is divorced and has a former spouse still living, please consult the Vicar.

The current charges for a church wedding are fixed nationally. Extra charges are payable for the services of an organist, choir or flowers if required. Videorecording of the service requires special approval and incurs an additional fee.

Once again, please accept our congratulations! We look forward to welcoming you to Little S Mary's.
