Having a wedding in Church is a wonderful experience. Although there are many alternative options available to couples to day, many still want to have a traditional wedding in an ancient Church and to seek God’s blessing on their new life together.
We love having weddings at St Saviour’s. However, we do have to comply with the law, so there are some limitations as to what we can do. However, we usually find that most problems can be overcome. Please contact the Vicar, preferably by coming to a Vestry Time in the church on a Thursday evening between 7.00 and 7.30pm. If that’s difficult, give him a phone call on 0114 418 2036. Please note that we now are required by the Government to ensure that we only do weddings where both the bride and the groom have British or EAA (European Union) citizenship. So we have to ask you to bring both of your passports when you come to make your booking. If there are difficulties around this, please give the Vicar a phone call and we will try and get it all sorted for you.
The Church of England has a great website dedicated to weddings which you might find helpful. It includes a very helpful wedding planner section which can help you choose hymns and Bible readings for your big day. You can find it at:
If you want to know about costs, you can find our wedding fees here: SSC Fees 2016
Again, we love having weddings at St Saviour’s and if you want to have your special day at our church we would love to help you a wonderful experience with God’s blessing as you start the amazing adventure of marriage.

Finally, with the kind permission of James and Steph Wilmshurst, we publish this shortened wedding video to give a bit of a flavour of what we can offer (well, the first part of the video, unfortunately we don’t do receptions!).
