Dear newly engaged, Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
With all our love and respect, we strongly advise: DO NOT make any bookings with any reception centres, or make any wedding-related commitments before consulting with your parish priest about the proposed date of your wedding.
You must first ensure that:
- The Church is available on your proposed date.
- Your proposed date is not a prohibited day for marriage in the Orthodox Church calendar (see below clause 5 or the Archdiocese yearly calendar)
- Reading the important information on the page below
We recommend that you clear this date with your parish priest as far in advance as possible.
The Church/Archdiocese cannot take ANY responsibility for any issues that arise from failure to follow to this advice.
