Marriages of Men and Women

We are always delighted to discuss holding a wedding at St Andrew’s, or to publish your banns of marriage if you are marrying at a church elsewhere.

You can be married at St Andrew’s as long as you fulfil one of the following criteria:

1. One of you:

  • lives in the parish; or
  • has ever lived in the parish for at least six months; or
  • has ever worshipped regularly at St Andrew’s for at least six months; or
  • has been baptized or prepared for confirmation at St Andrew’s; or

2. One of your parents:

  • has lived in the parish for at least six months during your lifetime; or
  • has worshipped regularly at St Andrew’s for at least six months during your lifetime; or

3. Your parents or grandparents were married at St Andrew’s.

St Andrew’s parish consists of the part of Earlsfield bounded by the River Wandle, the railway, Ellerton Road and Burntwood Lane.

If you are marrying at another church, you must live within the parish for your banns to be published at St Andrew’s.

To arrange the publication of your banns, come to our main Sunday service (10am) and speak to any of the clergy afterwards. To discuss holding a wedding at St Andrew’s, contact the Vicar.

Please note that the description of qualifications for marrying at St Andrew’s is provided for guidance only and is not a full statement of the law. If either of you have previously married and divorced, special conditions apply.

Marriages of Same-Sex Couples

The Church of England is not allowed to marry same-sex couples. However, we will be delighted to discuss holding a service at St Andrew’s following a civil marriage ceremony elsewhere. Contact the Vicar for more information.
