The Parish of Lullington with Orchardleigh


The fees for having your wedding in church fall into three groups:

  • the statutory legal amounts which cover the Minister’s legal role and the Parochial Church Council fee to cover use of the building, churchyard, lighting, administration and your marriage certificate(s)
  • the other church fees for the organist and verger and in the winter months (October – April) a charge for heating the church.
  • the other fees and charges that you incur directly from florists, photographers and others.

The statutory fees are set nationally and change each year, though as they have to go through parliament they usually don’t become available until November for the next year. The other church fees are agreed in the parish and are sorted out by November for the next year.
