WEDDINGS

158Thank you for expressing an interest in getting married at St. Michael & All Angels Church, our historic Norman building. Every wedding is unique and we will do all we can to make your wedding day a very special occasion for you and your guests.

Jesus Himself taught that marriage is the union of one man and one woman for life to the exclusion of all others (Matthew 19:4-6) and the Christian Church encourages couples on that wonderful journey. Here at St. Michael's we want you both to enjoy all that your future holds together under God, and we believe this church is a truly beautiful setting to help enhance your wedding day.

Whether or not you are baptised or go to church regularly we welcome you, and want to help you make the most of this special day in addition to the rest of your married life together.

There are a number of different connections you may have with St. Michael’s Church which will qualify you to be married here and we will be delighted to offer help, guidance and advice. The first step is to contact us to see which Qualifying Connection applies to one or both of you.

All couples who wish to get married in St. Michael’s will benefit from at least one meeting with Canon John, our Parish Priest, who will be carrying out your wedding. This provides an opportunity for you and him to get to know one another before the wedding day, and will be designed to help you with preparation for your service, as well as offering practical guidance for your relationship. Aspects of this meeting or meetings will provide information about the wedding itself, considering what it means to be married in a Christian service in addition to addressing practical aspects such as legal requirements, choices for readings, hymns, music, flowers, bells and so on.

217The Wedding Preparation Day was held on Saturday 9th March from 10am to 3.30pm, at Mickleham Village Hall, attended by couples marrying in the parish this year.

Your wedding is a very exciting time and there is much to prepare for, so we have created two documents which we pray will be helpful to you as you look forward to getting married at St. Michael and All Angels Church, Mickleham.
