Marriage Banns

Whether you are planning to marry at St Mary Magdalene (SMM) or live in the parish and plan to be married elsewhere it is a legal requirement for your Banns of Marriage to be called over three Sundays within three months of your wedding. At SMM this takes place during the 10am Sunday Eucharist.

For your banns to be read at SMM go through the following steps…

1. Check that you live in the parish

You can check our Parish Map to see if you qualify. If you do, fill in and sign the Marriage Banns Application Form.

If it's not clear from the map if you live in the parish please go to A Church Near You where you can type in your postcode and they will tell you the parish you live in.

2. Return the form

Please return the completed form, along with payment either online (bank details can be found on this page) or to the Parish Office at 10a Wiseton Road, London SW17 7EE.

The fee changes annually so please check the latest Parish Fees Table.  Payable to St. Mary Magdalene Wandsworth Common. Church of England Fees Information

3. Your Banns will be read

We will contact you with dates for the three Sundays on which your banns will be called. We would love to see you in church to hear them read.

After the third reading you will be contacted to arrange collection of the certificate which should be given to the clergy member conducting your wedding before the big day.
