Billy Connolly said that ‘Marriage is a wonderful invention, but then again so is a bicycle repair kit’! We believe that marriage is far more than just a wonderful invention; it is the best way to live life together.

Here at Saint George’s we look forward to helping you make the best start to your married life by asking for God’s blessing on your special day and to support you through the celebrations and challenges of married life. We will do our best to make your wedding a personal, memorable, and meaningful occasion.

Saint George’s Church, set as it is in Saint George’s Square, one of the most spectacular Georgian settings in Worcestershire and with its Arts and Crafts interior by the renowned architect Sir Aston Webb, makes an exquisite setting for those life changing, all-important vows and an exceptional venue for you and your families to celebrate your wedding day and the adjoining Magdalene Room makes a perfect venue for the reception afterwards.

Couples considering a wedding at Saint George’s are invited to come along to church any Sunday at 10.00 to speak to the Vicar or one of the church wardens after the service. You will be given the date of our next Saturday Surgery where we meet couples to discuss dates and arrangements. We will advise you on hymns, flowers and music and throughout this process we will pray for you both, for your relationship and for your marriage.

Not living in the area does not prevent you from having your wedding at Saint George’s. If you have a connection with the church through your parents or grandparents or you used to live in the parish as a child you are still eligible. You do not need to have been baptised. We also welcome couples where one or other partner has been divorced, a church wedding may still be an option.

All couples are expected to attend a marriage preparation session prior to their wedding. These sessions are great fun, and will help you both to think through your church wedding.

We look forward to celebrating your special day with your families and friends at Saint George’s Church.
