You’re welcome to marry in All Saints’, whether or not you are Christened and whether or not you regularly go to church. But it is necessary that at least one of you lives in the Parish of Banstead, or is associated with Banstead in certain ways (please see below).
If one or both of you has been divorced (and your ex-spouse is still alive) it may still be possible to marry in church. The Vicar can discuss this with you. We also offer the Service of Blessing after a Civil Marriage, and Renewal of Vows Services.
All Saints Church offers a short course of Marriage Preparation, run by the Mothers’ Union, which many couples find helpful and which we strongly recommend. The Vicar is happy to advise, and to help you as you plan this special day.
You may also be married at All Saints’ Church if any one of the following applies:
- You have had your usual place of residence in the parish for at least 6 months.
- At least one of your parents has had his or her usual place of residence in the parish for at least 6 months during your lifetime.
- You were Baptised at All Saints’ Church.
- You were Confirmed at All Saints’ Church.
- Your parent or grandparent was married in the parish by a Church of England service.
- You have habitually attended public worship at Church of England services in the parish for at least 6 months.
- Your parent has habitually attended public worship at Church of England services in the parish for at least 6 months during your lifetime.
A fee is charged for a marriage service, and there are additional fees for music, bells, flowers, etc. if you would like these.
