If you would like to get married at St. Augustine’s we will do everything we can to make your day special.

Please contact Fr. Keith Hodges as early as possible to discuss available dates.

Shown below are the Church of England guidelines on who can be married at a parish church.  You will need to meet any one of the following requirements to be married at St. Augustine’s

That one of you

  • Has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months

If you do not meet any of the above criteria please contact Fr. Keith to discuss applying for a special licence to allow your wedding to take place here.

The cost of a basic wedding is set by the Church of England Nationally.  The set fee for a Marriage Service is £413.00.  There is also a charge of £28 for the publication of your Banns on three Sundays prior to your wedding.  This makes a total of £441.00.  If you need to have your Banns published at another church there will be an additional charge of £41.00. Although we usually try to provide flowers for free there are additional charges for music, organist etc.

Unfortunately we do not hire our church hall for wedding receptions.
