All Saints' Church is an excellent place to get married. Please contact a member of clergy if you would like to know more.
It is possible for a wedding to take place on any day of the week but please remember that there are regular services on Sundays as well as bookings for other events during the week so do please talk to us in good time about a time and date, preferably before you book the venue for your reception to avoid disappointment. We do not conduct weddings on Good Friday, the Saturday before Easter Sunday (Holy Saturday) or Easter Sunday nor on Christmas Day.
If you and/or your fiancée have been married before, it may still be possible for you to be married in church. Please speak to a member of the clergy who can advise further. Alternatively, you may choose a service of prayer and dedication after a civil marriage. This is commonly called a Marriage Blessing. We would be happy to talk through the choices with you.
You may be married in All Saints' Church if you live in the parish of one of the Windsor Team churches, or have a “Qualifying Connection” to one of the Windsor Team churches. For further details please drop in at one our Team surgery sessions in St Stephen’s Church in Vansittart Road on Saturday mornings between 9.30am and 10.45am. Please bring your passports with you. Alternatively, contact one of the clergy team.
It may be possible to establish a "Qualifying Connection" if you or your fiancé(e):
If you do not qualify under any of the above, then it is possible to establish a "Qualifying Connection" by regularly attending services at any one of the Team churches on a Sunday for a period of at least eight months before your wedding. Regular attendance means at least twice a month. We can help you to show that you have been meeting this legal requirement if you ask for a copy of our weekly pew leaflet to be signed by the priest leading the service each time you attend.
If one of you is not a British or EEA citizen, then it will be necessary to obtain a Superintendent Registrar's Certificate, but you will still have to show that you qualify to be married in one of the Team churches.
Most couples are married by the calling of banns which is an announcement in the church of your intention to marry.
Please talk to us so that we can assist you with your plans. The Church of England has a helpful website for couples who wish to marry in church. Please do take a look: www.yourchurchwedding.org
