Getting married is probably the biggest commitment people ever make in their lives and it is right and good to seek God’s blessing as you start a new phase in your relationship, dedicating yourself to one another in the presence of your friends and family. Christian marriage is intended to be life-giving and life-long and to help couples prepare the Parish regularly holds a Sunday afternoon course entitled From This Day Forward which gives a couple space to discuss together how their relationship might evolve. Open to those marrying in either of our Parish churches or elsewhere, the course is run by one of the clergy team and a Relate Marriage Guidance Counsellor
Both St. Mary’s and All Saints’ Churches are available for weddings.
All Saints’ Church has a more traditional interior, beautiful Burne-Jones and William Morris stain glass windows and is situated on the edge of Putney Common. St. Mary’s has a more modern, in the round interior and is situated on the bustling high street.
St Mary’s also provides the option of holding your wedding reception on site, in the modern Lancaster Room in the Brewer Building attached to the church, with its roof terrace over-looking the Thames and river-side garden for photographs. In order to be eligible to marry at either All Saints’ or St. Mary’s you must live within the parish boundary, or be registered on the Parish Electoral Roll, or be able to demonstrate a Qualifying Connection to the parish, and these are are listed here.
If you are interested in booking a wedding, as a first step for St Mary’s Church please contact Antonia Wainman: [email protected]; and for All Saints’ Church please email Lottie Clarke on: [email protected]
