At St Bartholomew's we are happy to bless civil marriages between a man and woman and there is no reason this cannot happen immediately following your civil service or if you prefer even a few days later. However, this will need to be planned, therefore, it is important that that you contact us as soon as possible as part of your wedding preparations.
For some people this is a short service, without ceremony and for regular known members of the congregation it can be included as part of the Sunday Mass. For others, the Civil Ceremony will be a formality, and they will wish the service of Blessing to bear as many of the hallmarks of a Church wedding as possible.
However simple or extravagant you wish the Blessing of your Marriage to be, please contact the Priest in Charge, Father Michael who will then arrange to meet with you to discuss your plans.
