Signing the RegisterIf you or your parents or grandparents live in Frinton, you are eligible to be married in either St Mary's Parish Church, Old Road or the Old Church at the sea-end of Connaught Avenue. You may also be able to marry at one of our churches if you have some other connection to the town. Please discuss this with the Rector. Weddings are usually booked early, with some summer dates being booked up to two years in advance. You should contact the church office in the first instance, on 01255 679164, and download the ‘Banns of Marriage’ form, which should be filled out and sent to St Marys Old or posted to:

St Mary’s Parish Church Office,
Old Road, Frinton CO13 9BX

You will then meet with the rector, Rev. Don Smith, to discuss your wedding plans and book a date. Wedding preparation classes are held and some Sunday church attendance is encouraged. Here are some suggestions for hymns and readings.

The basic cost of a (Church of England) wedding is between £500 and £800, depending on the time of year and other options. It covers the church and the minister. To this you might choose to add, organist, choir, verger, sound engineer, hall hire, flowers, etc.

The rector reserves the right whether or not to re-marry divorcees.
