Wedding Costs

A Church Wedding involves much planning and many supportive roles which are subject to fees reviewed each year by the Representative Body of the Church in Wales on the advice of the Bishops and set by the Parochial Church Council annually.

Because these fees are determined by central authorities in the Church and are reviewed annually, and are not set locally (other than the fee for the Organist), it is not possible to say what these will be from year to year. They generally increase a little each year, (this is to help you if you are planning ahead beyond the current year) so, as a guideline, these are the fees for 2017:
