Can you provide a renewal of vows or wedding blessing service?
There are times and milestones in life when people may want to renew their marriage vows, or have their marriage blessed.
Both renewals and blessings happen at the same type of service. This service can also be seen as a thanksgiving for marriage. Our table of fees explains the costs involved.
Do contact the church office to arrange a meeting with the minister if you would like further information.
What are the arrangements for car parking?
The village green at the front of the church provides car parking for all services at St. John's. This facility is often used for other village events. If there could be difficulty parking, there are other car parking facilities available nearby. We ask that you supply two ushers to oversee the carpark before and after the service.
Can we contact the organist to discuss our choices?
The organist we use frequently is Tim Sturt. To ask him any questions about your wedding service or to book him for your special day, send Tim an email.
Can we have live music, electronic music or the use of a screen to project video?
At St. John’s we have the latest audio and visual equipment, to accommodate all you musical, visual or audio needs. Our trained sound engineers can also mix live sound. If you require a more complicated operation a further fee will be applied to accommodate the extra personnel needed. Our minister can advise you on this.
Can I get a second copy of our marriage certificate?
Yes, we can copy out the details in the wedding register onto a new certificate and sign the bottom for a fee of £10. It’s will be the same as the original certificate apart from the signatures.
Can you recommend any musicians?
Reuben is a keen and accomplished player, a member of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain and pupil at a local school. Have a look at his website.
