The Church of England has special responsibility for conducting marriage services for those who live in the community where their local church is situated or who have a special historical connection with a local church.

To check if you qualify to be married at St Andrew’s, please have a look at our page: Do I Qualify to Marry at St Andrew's.

Today, of course, other kinds of buildings are now licensed for weddings as well.

Nevertheless, many still choose to be married in church because they see that as a special sign of God’s involvement in their relationship and an opportunity to ask for his blessing on their decision to marry and their future together.

For those who have been married before, we will be happy to discuss with you what the options might be. Among these, we offer "The Continental Option". This is a Celebration of Marriage Service preceded by a civil preliminary.

At Farnham Parish Church, we hold a “Marriage Matters” seminar for all those planning their weddings in a given year where we explore together some of the issues couples face today in our over-stressed and busy lives. This usually takes place in the spring of each year. 

We can also send you further information about practical arrangements (like flowers and music) and details about the fees.

Before getting in touch we would suggest that all couples take the time to read this very useful information booklet which may answer a lot of questionsMarriage at St Andrews
