There is a required legal fee for any wedding taking place in the Church of England in 2022 of £512. This includes the fee for the minister, the church, the publication of your banns (notice of intention to marry) in our church.
If you don’t live in East or West Clandon, you will also need to contact your parish churches (click here to find out which church is your parish church) and arrange for your banns to be read there, there is an additional charge of £48 for the publication of banns in your parish church.
The statutory fees for our churches do not include optional extras that you might want to consider:
- Parish Clerk (who prepares the registers, tells bell ringers when to ring, tidies away orders of service etc. and helps the day go smoothly) – £45
- Organist (without music the wedding might seem a bit glum) – £115
- Choir (to help boost singing and to provide music during the signing of the registers) – £300
- Bell Ringers – £200
- If you wish to have an audio or video recording of your wedding you will need to pay the organist an extra £57.50 and the choir and extra £150.
In total all of these ‘extras’ would cost £660 (£867.50 if being recorded).
