These fees include those set nationally by the Church of England and Parliament.

The basic fee for a wedding
(This includes the fees for the Church and the organist)

The following extras are available, but are optional

Marriage certificate
During 2020 the way in which marriages are registered is set to change. A date has yet to be set for these changes to take place, following which any fee for a marriage certificate will be payable direct to the Registrar rather than to the Church.

Permission to film the service (whether professional or amateur) will need an additional agreement, and will incur the following additional costs.


These fees are revised annually and the rates in force at the time of the wedding will be the ones charged.

A deposit of £50.00 is required to be paid before we can confirm that the church has been reserved for the time agreed. This will not normally be refunded in the event of a cancellation, as it covers administration costs.

Cheques should be made payable to “St Mary’s Church, Whitkirk”.

The full balance must be paid not later than four weeks before the wedding.
