The Bare Facts
- We are happy to marry you whether you have been married before or are currently living together.
- We need a minimum of one calendar month plus a day to prepare the paperwork for the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.
- We are happy to marry you in one of our three churches or a venue of your choice. If not in the church then we must ask permission from the Bishop of Gippsland who says ‘yes’ in all but the very rarest of cases.
- We must use the words from the Anglican Marriage Service. There are lots of choices in the service and we are happy for you to add other readings and additional vows if you so choose.
- We usually arrange three meetings in preparation for the wedding.
- We do not expect you to take marriage preparation classes.
- Our aim is to give you opportunities to think about and enjoy your engagement while planning for both your wedding and your future life together.
- At present we are unable to marry same sex couples.

We also have a great hall right in the centre of Cowes able to seat up to 90 guests with a fully-equipped commercial kitchen, modern toilets, a portable stage, a room for the bridal party, and plenty of off-street parking.
To start planning your wedding, please contact Rev’d Jo: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0490831299.
Rev’d Jo usually meets with you three times. This is to fill in the required paperwork, to establish what you would like for your wedding day and to help her make your day really special.
