Weddings     

We welcome the opportunity to marry couples at St Mary with St Alban, a perfect church for weddings.

To qualify, one of you either has to live in the parish or be on the church electoral roll (which can only be done after 6 months of habitual attendance). In addition, new regulations allow you to qualify if one of the following applies:

  • one of you was baptised or prepared for confirmation in the parish;
  • one of you has ever lived in the parish for six months or more;
  • one of you has at any time regularly attended public worship in the parish for six months or more;
  • one of your parents has lived in the parish for six months or more in their child’s lifetime;
  • one of your parents has regularly attended public worship there for six months or more in their child’s lifetime;
  • your parents or grandparents were married in the parish.

To enquire about a wedding and available dates, please contact the Vicar, the Revd. Joe Moffatt, on 8977 2767 or at vicar@stmarywithstalban.org.
