How much does it cost? A wedding in St Catherine’s costs £595, which covers the legal fees, the vicar, using the church building, organist, bells to be rung and a person to set up (verger).
If you have to have banns of marriage read in St Catherine’s for a church in another area, then this costs £35
For the Blessing of a marriage, if the couple are asking for something that is more of a ceremony than a simple blessing, the cost is £375, which covers the vicar, using the church building, organist, bells to be rung and a person to set up (verger).
For a service of the renewal of wedding vows, then if there is a full ceremony like a wedding the cost is the same as the blessing of a marriage (£375); if there is a simple ceremony with just the vicar present the costs is £120.
If you need a Common License for your wedding rather than having banns read in church, the fee is £200, reviewed in April. The vicar, Peter Lewis is licensed for this.
