Anyone who is resident in Norton parish or has a ‘qualifying connection’ is eligible to get married at St Peter’s. An initial conversation with the vicar will establish your eligibility if you are unsure. We offer a lovely, welcoming church with a long aisle for the bride to walk down! We have a peal of eight bells and a good organ to provide music for your service.
If you would like to discuss a wedding at St Peter’s please get in touch with the vicar. She will arrange to meet you to have an initial discussion and to take your details. There will be a further meeting to discuss final choices of hymns, music, readings etc and to arrange a rehearsal. The churches in the area also offer a session ‘Space to T’ for all wedding couples which offers full information, ideas and suggestions for a wedding service and a chance to ask questions and meet other couples, which you will be invited to attend.
If you (one or both of a couple) are resident in Norton but getting married in another parish your banns must be read at St Peter’s church. This is a legal requirement. You need to give the vicar details to enable this to be done. The easiest way is to provide a copy of the form the vicar in the parish you are getting married completes when they meet you. The banns will usually be read over 3 consecutive Sundays in the month prior to the month you get married (e.g. wedding in June, banns read in May). On or after the third Sunday you collect a banns certificate from the vicar for a payment of £34.
