The Church of England in Cramlington
Marriage at St. Nicholas, Cramlington
THE CALLING OF BANNS
For a marriage to take place at St Nicholas Church the law requires for Banns to be called in your own parish church(es), which is St Nicholas Church for those resident in Cramlington. If either party or both of you are resident outside Cramlington, we will help you discover which Parish Church is involved and it will then be your responsibility to arrange for Banns to be called in that Church and to bring the Certificate of Banns to the Minister taking the service ONE WEEK before the marriage. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS LAW could result in your marriage not taking place.
If cash, to be paid at the rehearsal; if cheque to be paid at least 2 weeks before the wedding. Please consult the minister conducting the service. If cash please include a small number of low denomination notes.
MUSIC AND HYMNS
You MUST consult with the minister taking the service before making any decisions or having anything printed. The organist’s fee includes use of the sound system and organist as sound technician.
PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO RECORDINGS
Only one official still photographer and one official video photographer are permitted by arrangement with the minister taking the service. If you wish to video record your wedding please read carefully the special forms provided. Please tell your photographer that you must vacate the church within the hour that your wedding is to take place.
The fee charged is for flowers only; our flower arrangers give their services free. The flowers remain in church for Sunday morning after which they may be used as gifts for the sick or housebound.
At your clergy interview you should be given a flower arrangement form. Please return this to Mrs Sandra Stewart (Tel: 716543) no later than 4 weeks before the date of the wedding. Mrs Stewart is happy to accept telephone enquiries too.
