A wedding is one of life's great moments, a time of solemn commitment as well as good wishes, feasting and joy.


Jesus shared in a wedding at Cana, showing us that marriage is a sign of new beginnings as he turned water into wine. 

Marriage is intended by God to be a creative relationship, as his blessing enables husband and wife to love and support each other in good times and in bad, and to share in the care and upbringing of children. That's why marriage is based upon a solemn, public and life-long covenant between a man and a woman, declared and celebrated in the presence of God and before witnesses.


Even better, for Christians, marriage is also an invitation to share life together in the spirit of Jesus Christ. By dwelling in us, God's Spirit enables us to fulfill the promises that we make and provide the love our partners and surrounding family really need.

Congratulations to Teressa and Neil Llewellyn married at St. Nicholas Church in August 2015

    • A valid current Passport​ (proves your nationality and gives picture ID) *

    • A valid Driving Licence or a utility bill from the last 3 months (proves your address) *

    • Your post code (use this link to see if you can be married at St.Nick's without proving a connection)
