Weddings at St James

A Beautiful Church for your Special Day.

We believe St James is a beautiful place for any couple to make their wedding vows. Bright and airy with the potential to meet all your wedding requirements.

If you choose St James for your wedding there are several details both you and the church will need to know. Like any legal ceremony there are several checks that we need to make so that everything is in place for the big day and our Marriage Register is correct.

Ideally you should contact our Wedding Coordinator, Mrs Oonagh Cowling (Tel 01706 644343) who’ll invite you to meet and go through all the necessary details. This will normally take place after a service on a Sunday morning.

Once all your details have been checked we’ll meet to check all the details for the actual wedding i.e. choice of music, readings, hymns etc.

If one partner lives outside The Parish of Milnrow St James, you will need to find out what Parish they reside in and then contact their Parish Priest. Wedding Banns must be read in both Parishes at least three months before your wedding.

When you meet with us we can supply you with a Leaflet on Marriages within the Church of England for your information.

We appreciate that in this modern world things can change. At times demand for weddings can be high so it’s vital that you keep us updated on all arrangements with your wedding so that we can ensure your wedding goes smoothly and that others are not inconvenienced.
