Marriage is both a glorious, joyful celebration, and a deep, solemn commitment. Making your vows before God in church expresses both these aspects most profoundly.

The sacrament of marriage also recognises that, created in the loving image of God, it is our essential nature to love. In marriage two people come together to express this love, with thanks, reverence and delight.

No matter where you live, you are welcome to have your wedding at St Peter’s or the CoRe (Church of the Resurrection). Some couples are worshippers here, or have a family connection, but others worship with us during the months before their marriage. Each one is special and we do our best to give you the most loving start to the amazing journey of your new life together.

Your first step? Please call the Parish Office (01625 827625) and you will be invited to talk to or meet with the Vicar.

Heavenly Father,
we thank you for opening hearts to your love,
for bringing together those now preparing for marriage.
Bless them with kindness, generosity and patience,
that they may grow together in joy and delight,
through times of difficulty as well as those of ease,
trusting in your strength and guidance,
through the grace of your Son, Jesus Christ.
