Option 3: 'Prayers and Paperwork' only

If you just want to legally register your marriage, with some prayers, but none of the usual grand ceremonials, this is the option for you.

This is a simple ceremony of readings and prayers.

If you are a member of one of our regular Sunday congregations, the ceremony can take place during the usual Sunday service.

Otherwise, it can take place on any day of the week during summer (June to September inclusive, local diaries permitting), or in colder months on a day when another service has already taken place in the same church (so that it is already warm). This applies to Hornby virtually every Sunday and Wednesday, and to each of the other churches on three Sundays a month.

The quiet, prayerful ceremony takes only a few minutes.

A single price of £470 (2018 rate) applies across all four churches.

This includes all legal costs (including banns here but not elsewhere), and the marriage certificate.



You can book up to six months in advance.

Email the vicar (vicar@these4parishes.co.uk) including: Once the date, time and venue are agreed, you should confirm the booking by making full payment, by cheque, payable to whichever of the following applies: The cheque should be handed to the vicar or dropped off at / posted to: Station House, Arkholme, Carnforth LA6 1AZ.

We will acknowledge receipt, and that confirms your booking.



And finally...

Three months before the wedding, you need to go through this check-list (this is very important).
Make a note that you need to do this, as you may not receive a reminder.

One month before the wedding, you need to go through this check-list (this is also very important).
Make a note that you need to do this, as you may not receive a reminder.
