Can I get married in church?
You have a right to be married in your parish church. You do not have to be a regular attendee. If you come from separate parishes, then you can choose in which church you would like to be married.
It is usual for at least one of you to be baptised.

What music shall I choose?
Please talk to the organists. They will help you to plan the music and hymns for your wedding. Do contact them early on in your planning.
We also have a very good choir at St. Brannock’s who are willing to sing at weddings just let the vicar know when you book the wedding that you would like them.
Should we have a printed order of service?
You don’t have to have a printed order of service. However if you would like one then please talk to the vicar, as there are sample copies for you to look at.
Will the church bells be rung?
The bell ringing team are normally available to ring before and after a wedding. However the bells can only be rung once on any one day. The first couple to book a wedding on that particular day will have “first refusal” on the bells. All requests for the bells depend on the availability of a team on that particular day.
What photographs can be taken?
Please ask your photographer to talk to the vicar before the service; we will do our utmost to accommodate them. There is no flash photography during the service.
Can we video the service?
Videos are permitted in the church, but you will need a video licence, the cost of this depends on the cover required.
Where can we park the cars?
The church’s car park is by the St. Brannock’s Rooms and has room for about 10 cars. Due to street parking it is not always possible for the Bride’s car to be left near the church gate. This can be difficult if a friend or relative wishing to attend the service drives the car. The entrance and the drive opposite the church gate doesn’t belong to the church and should not be used for parking.
Any other questions?
Please do not hesitate to contact the vicar if there is anything you are not sure about.
