If you have decided you may like to get married in St. Mary’s church please give our vicar, Rev Canon Paul Richardson a call.  There are a few things to discuss with him before your wedding date can be confirmed, so it is advised to make contact around the same time as you contact or visit your reception venue, so you can synchronise the dates.

There are a couple of important reasons to have this conversation in good time.

  • It will ensure Paul has time to advise you about the legal requirements for marrying at the church – some circumstances require legal preliminaries that take time to process.
  • St. Mary’s can become booked up for weddings several months in advance or there could be other things happening like community events at the church on or around your preferred date.

Paul’s personal attention, advice and support will help you create the wedding of your dreams and offer you everything that being connected to a church can mean, not just for your wedding, but also well beyond the big day.

Paul will be delighted to hear from you and will want to meet you both.  It may even be possible to set the date there and then if all seems well and the church is free on your preferred date.

For further information please contact Rev Canon Paul Richardson on 01302 745717 or email him at
