We are delighted that you are thinking of a Church wedding; the good news is that you can marry here whether or not you go to church or have been christened, provided you meet the legal criteria and fulfill the parish residence or ‘church connection’ legal requirements.
At St Luke's, we do all we can to make a wedding service the very special day which all couples wish for in our beautiful modern church.
To find out more, make an appointment with one of our clergy via the Parish Office.
We look forward to meeting you and having the chance to talk things through.
If you live in our parish and are planning to get married in another Church of England church please download the banns application form print, complete and bring it to us us to arrange to have your banns read here.

A Service of Prayer and Dedication after a Civil Marriage
This service is for a husband and wife – already married – who wish to dedicate to God their life together. For example, where a couple have married in a civil ceremony, or have married abroad, and they wish to come to church to have their marriage "blessed". This can be a small service, with just the couple and some friends, or a larger service. See the Church of England website for more details. Please contact our Parish Office if you want to discuss this.
Thanksgiving for Marriage
Where a husband and wife want to reaffirm their vows together, perhaps to celebrate an anniversary or after a time of separation or difficulty in marriage, then we can offer a service of "Thanksgiving For Marriage". This too can be a small service, with just the couple and some friends, or a larger service. See the Church of England website for more details. Again, please contact our Parish Office if you want to discuss this.
