Weddings for All

We are here to help you to have a memorable day with a traditional Chuch wedding.

 

This information is intended for use in conjunction with further discussions with Father Iain Forbes. Please do not hesitate to ask for any further   information you need.

Banns of Marriage Application

Please complete the form supplied by Fr Iain and return it to the Parish Office. The date of the wedding cannot be booked until the form is returned.

 

Banns of Marriage

The Banns must be read out in church at three main services during the 3 month period prior to the date of the wedding.
Fr Iain will let you know when he intends to read them so you and your family can be present if you wish.

 

Service Sheets

Please discuss your requirements with Fr Iain in the first place. We are able to produce the service sheet for a charge.

 

Music

We can supply an organist and usually a choir of 8-10 voices. In addition to leading the singing in the service the choir usually sings an anthem during the signing of the register. Durring the period while we do not have a permanent orgaist please contact the office so we can pass your requested to the organist we have arranged for the service.

 

Video Recording

Video recording equipment may be used according to the conditions set out on the separate sheet. Where the service is video taped, the organist and choir fees are increased.

 

 

   

Parking

There is sufficient parking space in the church grounds for most weddings but if you are expecting a very large number of people please let Fr Iain know. Parking is allowed on Woodham Lane but we do ask people to avoid parking in The Riding (opposite the church) which is a private road. You may like to consider asking one or two of your friends/family to steward parking.

 

Arrangements for Disabled People

The church has a loop system. There is ramped access via the narthex entrance to the church. You may wish to reserve parking spaces near that entrance for elderly relatives or those with mobility difficulties. Chairs can be moved to accommodate a wheelchair as necessary.

 

Toilet

There is a toilet off the parish room which adjoins the church.

 

The Parish Hall

The Parish Hall, situated at the end of the drive, is available for wedding receptions. It will seat up to 100 people for a buffet meal. There is a large kitchen and toilets. Enquires please contact the Administrator in the parish office on 01483 727835 or email admin@allsaintswoodham.co.uk.
