Your wedding

St Thomas’ is the only Grade 1 listed building in central Stourbridge, and as such makes the perfect venue for your special day.

Can I get married at St Thomas’?

There are rules about where you can get married, but that you are considering us at all probably means that you qualify. Get in touch with the parish office – if they cannot immediately say ‘yes’, one of the ministers will call you to find a way for your marriage to start at St Thomas’.

What about marriage preparation?

It’s all part of the service we offer, both before and after your Wedding Day. We’ll need to prepare for your Wedding Service. It is your service, and although it will follow the Wedding Service of the Church of England there is a lot that you can do to customise it. We’ll also help you to prepare for your marriage in the years ahead.

What will it cost?

There is a basic cost for a Church of England Wedding but you will probably want some extras. These might include an organist to play some music, perhaps the choir too, bells to be rung, additional flowers or an order of service? We can help with all these things and we don’t charge a premium.

More Information?

Contact the parish office, we’ll be pleased to answer your questions. Or check the Church of England’s Wedding Website.
