We look forward to sharing in marriage services in church and praying for the new husband and wife. The first minutes of married life will be in church, so we pray that God will bless the marriage.
Where do you live?
It may seem odd that one of the first things we ask is ‘where do you live?’ The reason is that we need to be sure that we are allowed to conduct the service. The law states that we are allowed to marry people who live within the parish boundaries or those who are regular worshipers at St James’. There are a few other ways to meet the legal requirements which are summarised on another page. Please do have a word with the vicar if you would like to explore these further.
Parking and Confetti
The space in front of the lych gate at St. James’ is reserved for the bride’s car. Confetti can be thrown here when the bride and groom return to the car, but we would ask you to make it known to the guests that throwing confetti in the church grounds is unhelpful.
