A church is so much more than simply a venue for your wedding. Unique and special things become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond:-

A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the main attraction for the joining of two people in Holy Matrimony for many couples, whatever their beliefs.


You can make amazing vows, or promises, in a church. You can only make vows this big in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.

The Rector/Vicar has a very particular role to play in your wedding. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the Vicar, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.


If you are already a regular worshipper with us, or if you live within the Westborough Parish you are very welcome to get married here at St Francis Church.

Come along to one of our Sunday Services and introduce yourselves to us. They we can arrange for one of the clergy to come and visit with you, and start making the arrangements.

If you would like more details please contact Rev Stefanie Hodges on 01483 504228


Marriage Banns

The publication of marriage banns is a legal requirement within the Church of England. It is the public announcement that two people wish to marry, and gives a chance for anyone in the congregation to put forward a reason why the wedding should not take place. The banns are usually read out during a normal church service

Your banns will only need to be read at St Francis if you are getting married at St Francis, or if the wedding is elsewhere and you live in the streets of the Parish which includes Park Barn. 

If you need us to read your banns for your wedding at another church, please contact the Rev Hodges, 001483 504228, at least four months before your wedding day. There is a small fee payable.

The banns will be read at our 10.0m Sunday service for three weeks in a row.
