WEDDINGS @stmarywarsash

Congratulations on choosing to get married and we hope we can help you have a very memorable wedding in our beautiful church.

By coming to church for your marriage you are choosing to involve God from the beginning.  We pray that your marriage will be blessed with the mutual love, honour and comfort which the service celebrates.

Information about getting married in the Church of England can be seen at www.yourchurchwedding.org.  The site has lots to offer as you plan your wedding, and you can see the words of the Common Worship service in the ‘Types of Wedding Service’ section.

Please note that for registration purposes, one of you must live in or have a strong connection with the parish of Hook with Warsash, or otherwise regularly worship at St.Mary’s so you can be on the parish electoral roll. The parish boundary can be seen in blue if you zoom out on the MAP. The Law changed in October 2008 to allow those with a past strong connection in the parish to be married in the church.  If you live outside the parish then please visit www.yourchurchwedding.org on the ‘more churches to choose from’ page to see if you have a past connection that will allow you to be married here.

Please contact us to arrange a time to meet so that the Clergy can discuss and book your wedding with you both.  At that appointment a few more details will be taken, your questions answered, and you will be invited to our marriage preparation course called ‘To Love and to Cherish’ in advance of your wedding.  For course details and dates please see www.loveandcherish.org.uk

Remarriage: If you have been married before then it may still be possible for you to get married in church but you will need to discuss the circumstances with the Clergy.  If the marriage is not possible in church, for instance, if one of you has been married more than once before, then the Clergy will happily introduce you to the very meaningful celebration of marriage following a civil ceremony.  You can find more details and see the options and words at www.yourchurchwedding.org

Celebrating an Anniversary

Congratulations on reaching a special anniversary in your marriage.  There is a lovely service called ‘A Thanksgiving for Marriage’ which is designed to help you celebrate your marriage in church with a renewed commitment to your vows.  Of course, the service need not be limited to anniversaries, such a celebration of renewed commitment to your wedding vows may be appropriate at other times too.

More information and the words for the Thanksgiving for Marriage can be found at www.yourchurchwedding.org The service is ideal for your Silver, Golden or any other anniversary.  Or for renewing vows on an anniversary years after a Civil Ceremony, when you want to give thanks to God.

If you would like to discuss such a celebration at St.Mary’s with us then we would be pleased to hear from you.
