We’re getting married!

Congratulations, we are delighted you are getting married and will do all that we can to help your arrangements go smoothly.

Step 1 — checkout the Church of England’s wedding resources pages

Step 2 — checkout the legal requirements that we have to make sure are in place

Step 3 — use the address checker to make sure you are contacting the right church for your special day and for having your banns called

Step 4 — fill out this banns application (if you are marrying in a different church) or the wedding application (if you are marrying at St Wulstans) below

Step 5 — the fees for banns and for marriage services in 2022 were as follows:

  • banns only is £48 (£32 for calling the banns and £16 for the certificate)
  • marriage service is a complete fee of £555, which includes the statutory fee of £480 and the local fee of £75 to cover our buildings and site costs. We expect to receive a 20% deposit in order to confirm the date with us.

The fees in 2023 are just about to be confirmed but they have increased by around 10% in line with inflation. These fees are set nationally.

Payments should be made online using our banking details, quoting Wedding(date/time) or Banns (date) as the reference
