Getting Married

260 lightFirst of all …. CONGRATULATIONS! and we hope that, at St Matthew’s, we will be able to support you in your wedding plans and in a lifelong and fulfilling marriage together.

Today more than a quarter of all marriages in England take place before God in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. You’re welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church regularly.

The Church of England provides a good link to ‘all you need to help you plan a personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful church wedding’ on their weddings web site at :
