Marriage Service

duration

40 minutes

A marriage service is a wonderful occasion to celebrate the commitment a couple makes to one another to live their lives together in a spirit of love. Marriage services are generally on a Saturday, although they can be on any day of the week. As a marriage in church has a legal status, there are restrictions on who can get married which have to be honoured. (Please see the qualifications  in the Marriages Measure of 2008.) If you think you qualify to get married in St Giles', please contact the Vicar for more details.
