St Michael's is an inspiring, beautiful and historic listed building with plenty of 'wow factor' for the most important of days.  It has never been easier to get married in church and we would love to help give the promises you make to each other the depth of meaning, personal attention and sacred setting you deserve - whether or not you are a churchgoer already.

Step two: Contact the Vicar to discuss things further

To get married in the Church of England, the couples names along with the date of the wedding are read out on 3 consecutive Sundays, this is known as 'The Reading of the Banns'. Banns must be read at the church you are getting married at and (if different) the parishes the couple live in.
