How much will it cost?

 

There are two sets of fees involved with your wedding: the statutory fees fixed by the Church of England, which have to be paid, and fees for optional extras which you can choose from.  At the time of booking your wedding, we ask for 75 part payment towards your wedding to confirm the booking.  This amount will be deducted from your final invoice.  All fees quoted here are those for 2017, but they may rise by a small amount each year.

 Local Fees:

 

Verger

The Verger is a member of the congregation who opens the church, prepares it for the service, liaises with ushers and deals with any queries or problems.  They give over two hours of their time for your wedding day, and the fee for this is 25 at each church.

Music
If you wish to have the organ played at your wedding, the fee is 70 in each church.  The organist's fee will also be payable in the event of any other music being played.
There are choirs in Bromham and Oakley, and you may choose to book them for your wedding. The fees are 80 for each choir. Please note that during holiday times we may not have a full choir available. There is a section later on in this booklet providing more details about music.

Heating

You need to consider whether you will require heating in the church for the service.  During the summer this is usually unnecessary, but recommended from October to April.  The fee in each church is 50.

Bells

All three churches have tower bells and a band of ringers available if you would like the bells to be rung when you come out of church at the end of the ceremony. This usually takes the form of two or three spells of ringing for five to ten minutes each with short rests between. The fees are detailed below.  Please note that for a weekday wedding, we may have to get ringers in from further afield as some of our ringers work during the week, and the fees are slightly higher.

Recording (Sound or video)

Many couples choose to have a video recording made of their wedding ceremony.  We are also able to offer sound recording in Bromham and Oakley.  You need to discuss this at least 8 weeks in advance with your Vicar because of the rulings on recording rights.  The fee is 40 for any kind of recording, plus additional fees to be paid to the organist.
