Service of Prayer and Dedication

Service of Prayer and Dedication after a Civil Marriage

If either you or your fiancé(e) is divorced, you will not be able to have a Marriage Service at St Sebastian’s, but we would be very happy to offer you a Service of Prayer and Dedication after a Civil Marriage (sometimes known as a Wedding Blessing service). 

This is a service in church in which you declare that you understand your marriage and the vows you have taken to each other in a Christian context.  It is a full church service with Bible readings, hymns and prayers, and it includes the blessing of the marriage.

This service can take place immediately after the civil ceremony (which would happen in another venue) or it can take place at a later date if that is what you would prefer.  The fees are similar to those for a wedding.
