Information about booking weddings

To secure your wedding booking, you will need to pay a £200 deposit. Please make any cheques payable to PCC of St Laurence Cowley. For administration purposes cheques are generally preferred but you can pay in cash.

Both the bride and the groom will need to come into the office to sign the Banns of Marriage application.

Weddings are being booked for the first and last Saturdays of the month only. There is very limited availability for summer and autumn 2017. Bookings must be agreed with the church warden.

Couples should be resident in Cowley parish or be regular worshippers at St Laurence’s on Sunday mornings. Please talk to the church wardens if you’d like to find out more.

The church does not have an organist and books a freelance organist for weddings and funerals. The organist fee is separate. Please let the church know if you need an organist when you make the booking.

The church has a CD player which is operated by volunteers from the church congregation. If a member of your family wishes to help at your wedding by operating the CD player please let us know.

Other important information about bookings

All bookings must be made in person in the church office. No telephone bookings or email bookings will be taken.

It’s very important that you give the church the correct contact details. You may wish to email the church office after making the booking to confirm that your email address is correct. If you change your address or telephone number after making the booking you must let the church know.

St Laurence’s Church is part of the Church of England. The Church of England sets fees for all of its parish churches in England. There is more fee information on this page.
