St James’ Church, West End, Southampton SO30 3LA.  Registered Charity Number 1132863

A wedding is one of life’s great moments when two people declare their love and commitment to each other by making vows, giving and receiving rings and signing the registers. This all in front of family, friends, in a beautiful building and in the presence of God!

Can I get married at St. James’?

You need to have a qualifying connection in order to marry at St. James’. You have a qualifying connection if:

One of you:

Or one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

Or that one of your parents or grandparents:

And did you know that if you move house, you’re immediately connected to the church there? That means you can marry in the church of your new parish.

If you are not sure or want to enquire please get in touch and we will try and help you.

Wedding Procedure

If we have established a qualifying connection and you wish to book a wedding at St. James’ we will arrange an initial meeting to fill in a marriage application form and confirm a date. We will ask you to pay a £40 non-refundable deposit which will count towards the total cost of the wedding. We will also ask you to bring other documents such as passports and utility bills for proof of address etc.

Marriage Preparation

We run a marriage preparation course in the church hall (next to the church). This course will cover all the practical details you will need to know such as flowers, Banns of Marriage and orders of service and also encourage you to think together about your future marriage and take a closer look at the marriage service. We invite all couples to attend this course and it is usually very well received, informative and fun (so we’ve been told!).
