Note about weddings: If an entry just says "Wedding of ...", that means it is firmly booked. But if it says "Wedding of ... (provisional)", that means the date and time is reserved for the couple but not definitely booked yet. We don't allow firm bookings until the year in which the wedding is to take place, and we ask couples to keep the vicar informed about their intentions and to ring at the beginning of the year of their wedding to confirm their arrangements.

Please note that we do not allow provisional bookings of wedding dates during the school summer holidays until the summer before the wedding, because we cannot guarantee the availability of clergy during the summer period until the clergy have fixed their own holidays. We are now taking bookings of weddings for Summer 2017, but we will not be taking any provisional bookings of weddings from Friday 20th July 2018 to Sunday 2nd September 2018 inclusive until August 2017.
