Can I get my Wedding Banns read?
If you are permitted to marry via the reading of banns and you live in the parish we can read your wedding banns. Download the form here and return to firstname.lastname@example.org You will then be advised of the fee and the dates that your banns will be called. Legally the reading must be within three months of your wedding date.
We would be delighted if you want to come and hear your banns being read on Sunday morning, but this is not a legal requirement.
Can I get married in Holy Trinity Dalston or All Saints Haggerston?
You may get married at either of our churches – if you live in this parish, or if you are able to show:

How much will a Church Wedding Cost?
Wedding fees are set centrally by the Church of England (the easiest way to find out what they are is to go to https://www.yourchurchwedding.org scroll down, and click on the button that says 'the cost of church weddings'.
There is also a £50 charge for heating (which isn't required in the summer).
If you would like an organist to be present there is a charge which is set by the organist.
