Thank you for such a beautiful, meaningful and joyous marriage ceremony for [bride and groom]. Everyone commented on the whole service - your procession down the aisle, your humour and warmth, and your sincerity throughout' Groom's parents 2019
The service was so perfect, you made it feel personal and intimate (many of our guests comment as to this). I was so pleased we fortunate enough to have found and had our wedding at your church and that you were so welcoming. I truly feel privileged and that this was the right and divine way for us to have been married. The meaning and significance in the face of God matched the value and feelings we have for each other.

We had an amazing day, Lyn was superb and kept the whole ceremony flowing and lighthearted, there were a large number of children in the congregation but she managed to keep them engaged in what was going on too. On the whole we couldn't have asked for a better ceremony ! Wedding Couple 2016
I would like to be married at St Andrew's Church or the Church of the Resurrection
We like to say a resounding 'Yes' to as many couples as possible and we hope you find we will do our best to make it happen. As a wedding ceremony has a legal element we have to make sure we can legally marry you before offering to do so.
We often get asked about who is eligible to get married in the parish - the short answer is, those who are resident in the parish, those who are on the electoral roll of the church, or those who can demonstrate a 'qualifying link' to the parish. More details about this are found in the Information Pack. Just by entering your postcode into www.achurchnearyou.com you can find out for sure which parish you do live in. You can also contact the Rector, Paul Gully, on 023 9237 5145 if you have any questions about residency.
Weddings are a real feat of co-ordination with reception venue, flowers, wedding cars, honeymoon... even so, you might be surprised at how little notice you need to be married in church!
