On your wedding day you make one of the biggest promises of your life, as you each commit yourself to another person in a life-long, life-giving relationship. Marrying in church is a personal, meaningful, spiritual, experience. If you are considering a wedding at St Aidan’s Church, we would love to hear from you and make the day as special for you as we can!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. You do not need to be baptised or a regular church-goer to be married at St Aidan’s.

3. There are many ways to personalise your wedding ceremony. You can choose music and hymns during the service. You can pick readings or poems. You can arrange your own florist or ask the church to provide our own.
