1 Safeguarding is part of our core faith and an integral feature of Christian life in our parish churches.

2 Welfare of children, young people & vulnerable adults is at all times paramount and takes precedence over all other considerations

3 Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser MUST be consulted whenever a safeguarding concern of any kind arises in your parish

Further information regarding Safeguarding can be found on this website and in the church office.

The Rehearsal

The wedding rehearsal is where we have a run through of the wedding with you and your wedding party.  Wedding rehearsals are a lot of fun and it will take a lot of pressure off you when you know what happens and when!  The rehearsal usually lasts between a half-an-hour and an hour.

Please bring as many of the wedding party as possible to the rehearsal; you and your fiance, bridesmaids, page boys, best men, mums/dads/parents or guardians, readers (if a friend is reading the Bible passage), etc.

Please also bring your order of service – enough to go round!

At the rehearsal we will run through the whole wedding – all the words and readings and you will get a chance to practice your declarations and vows.

Wedding rehearsals usually take place two days before your wedding, so if, for example, your wedding is on a Saturday then your rehearsal will take place on a Thursday.

The vicar will discuss the date and time of your rehearsal with you at the Wedding Planning Meeting.
