Wedding photos and recording


Please make sure your photographer knows photos are permitted only during the arrival of the bride and groom, during the signing of registers, when you leave in procession and outside the Church. We usually ask the bride and groom to stand for some posed photos at the end of the ceremony before leaving. In other words there are several opportunities to get some wonderful pictures of your wedding and we would respectfully ask that no photographs are taken during the Service itself.

Professional videos may be made only by prior arrangement with the Vicar of St Mary's.

If music and musicians are involved in your wedding, a licence must be applied for from the Mechanical Copyright Protection Society for the professionally made video, and additional fees are payable to the musicians. The focus of the service is the bride and groom so it is important that the person making the video recording remains in the designated place and does not distract from the couple getting married.
