Congratulations on your engagement!
Preparation for your wedding can be both exciting and daunting. But with the wealth of experience in the parish, we will be able to guide you through all the legal requirements and order of the service including your choice of music and flowers. Our aim is to ensure that the church arrangements are as straightforward as possible!
Each year many couples choose St Thomas à Becket and occasionally St Matt’s for their marriage ceremony, whether or not they attend church regularly. We would love to be a part of your special day if you live in the parish (or you live outside the parish but have a connection with Widcombe).
We ask all couples to undertake a short marriage preparation course, which involves meeting with one of our trained marriage mentor couples, ideally over three evenings or occasionally a weekend. These fun and thought-provoking sessions will help you to focus on your relationship and build the foundation for a life-long marriage.
