A wedding is one of the most joyful and significant events for a couple, and for such a special day, we offer a special place to conduct the ceremony. You're welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church. We would be delighted to help you to commit your lives to one another and to ask God to bless your marriage.
If you have lived, or regularly attended church, in one of the parishes churches, (Burton Dassett, Northend, Farnborough, Fenny Compton, Gaydon, Chadshunt or Avon Dassett) then it should be possible to marry in any of the 7 churches within the Dassett Magna Group. There are several other possibilities for a “qualifying connection”, and you can find them by following the link below.
Your marriage is one of life’s great moments, a time of commitment as well as good wishes, feasting and joy. We are delighted to support and work with couples preparing for their Marriage Service in Church. You are welcome to have a chat with the Reverend Nicki (0776987123) about your hopes and plans, or you may prefer first to explore the Church of England wedding website link below.
Marriage is a commitment “till death us do part”, but we acknowledge that marriages do themselves die, and we welcome wedding enquiries from divorced people. It is not legally possible at present for couples of the same sex to have a Marriage Service in the Church of England.

Popular places for wedding receptions often get booked up 18 months in advance, so it’s helpful to enquire about places and dates for your wedding reception at the same time as enquiring about the church and before agreeing a date for the wedding. A wedding does not have to be on a Saturday.
There’ll be an opportunity to meet with the priest who will be officiating at your wedding, to plan service details, discuss legal requirements and fees. Then, nearer the wedding day, there’ll be a time for the two of you to rehearse in church. We look forward to helping make the wedding day your special day.
