Wedding Fees


The cost of a Wedding in our Benefice at present is £500.

Unfortunately as the Church of England set the fees centrally this is likely to rise each year in January. This cost including the wedding service, marriage certificate, preparing and cleaning the church, heating, lighting and the services of a verger. It also includes the cost of reading of the banns (a legal requirement).
