Weddings

A wedding is one of life’s great moments, a time of solemn commitment as well as good wishes, feasting and joy. St. John tells us how Jesus shared in such an occasion at Cana, and gave there a sign of new beginnings as he turned water into wine.We are delighted you have chosen to be married at the Parish Church of St. Mary's Church, Oatlands.

  3. had at any time had their usual place of residence in the parish for at least six months; or
