Weddings

If you are considering marriage at All Saints or St Barnabas, firstly congratulations!

We understand what a big step marriage is, and we will be happy to help you as you prepare for the big day and beyond.


You need to establish whether you can be married at St Barnabas or All Saints.

To check which parish you live, click on the link here and type in your postcode. If each of you does this for where you live, you will then know in which parishes you are resident.

Even if one of you does not live within the boundary of either parish, there are a few conditions by which we are still legally able to marry you. These are called Qualifying Connections.

The qualifying connections are:

  • If one of you has lived in the parish at any time for a period of 6 months.
  • If one of you was baptised in the parish
  • If one of you was prepared for confirmation in the parish
  • If one of you has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months

or if one of your parents at any time after you were born

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish for a period of 6 months 

or one of your parents or grandparents 

  • was married in the parish.


We will be delighted to hear from you so please do contact us at any point.
