Getting married at St Mary's, Attenborough
Welcome to St Mary's church Attenborough and congratulations on your forthcoming wedding.
Organising a wedding can be
a daunting experience and this information has been put together to help
you organise the wedding ceremony.
You may want a simple service
or a service with the choir and the church bells ringing as you walk back
down the aisle.
Getting married can be a very expensive event and to help you budget we have included a list of charges for the ceremony, your Banns being read, the choir and Bells.
If after reading this information you are still unsure or would like to ask some questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Reading of Banns
In Attenborough church, Banns are read at the 10.00am service on the first three Sundays in the month prior to your wedding. If you need to organise Banns in another parish, the parish church will inform you of the date and times when the Banns will be read.
Local fees which you are requested
The following are optional
depending on your requirements
* Note: The Choir and Bellringers
are volunteers and their attendance cannot be guaranteed. Availability
may not be known until near the date of the wedding, so we apologise in

of course, be refunded.

It is important to be on time
for your wedding as there may be other services scheduled, or those involved
in the service may have later commitments.
Please make every effort to be on time so that the service is enjoyable for everyone.
Please contact the organist after a Sunday service. He will be pleased to advise you with regard to processional music and hymns. Usually two or three hymns are chosen. You may also wish to request some special musical item while the Registers are being signed.
If you wish to place flowers
in church, you can ask Mrs Hillary Brian or make your own arrangements
to do so. Please contact the Parish Office (tel: 925 9602) to arrange
for access etc.
Photographers and video-operators should consult the Vicar before the service regarding where they may set up equipment and when it is appropriate to take photographs.
We are pleased to help you as you prepare for your wedding day and we will notify you of a date for a wedding preparation morning. We will also be inviting you to a special service called 'Wedding Hymns of Praise'. This is an opportunity for you to pray about your plans for the future and help you focus on the vows that you will be taking. The service will also help you choose hymns and readings.
