I live in Newport Pagnell and want to get married in the Parish Church.
What are the first steps?

Contact the Parish administrator, Malcolm Godwin, in the Parish Office on 01908 611145 or email He will take your details and supply you with an information pack. You will then need to have a meeting so he can:

- gather details from you both about you and your wedding,

- agree a date with you,

- gather the information the church requires to legally conduct the wedding,

- explain what is involved in getting married at one of the churches in the Benefice, including the fees and the legal requirements.

How do I know I can get married in the Parish Church or other church in the Benefice?
Which Church to get married in?
What if one or both of us has been married before?
What about music, choir, flowers and bells?
The Flowers
What happens next?
What is the Wedding Preparation Meeting?
What are banns?
When will our banns be read out?
Do I need to attend the church to hear our banns read?

It is not essential, but if they were not read out in time there would be major problems in getting married. If you could not attend, it would be in your own interests to ask a representative to be present. In Newport Pagnell you will be able to come along to our Parish Church Sunday Service and hear your banns being read. These are happy occasions for you, your parents and the members of the congregation who will be praying for you both in the weeks surrounding your wedding. Being there will help you to feel more that the church is your home and not a vast space that you are renting out for your wedding!

When do I pay the church for the wedding?
When is the wedding rehearsal?
Who needs to attend the rehearsal?
How much will it cost?
