Weddings @ Christ Church
Christ church offers a delightful venue for a wedding. Seating up to a maximum of 120 guests, it feels very intimate and the pillars and windows offer lots of opportunities to have floral decoration. In addition Duns Castle and Wedderburn Castle are close by and offer lovely venues for receptions.
Those wanting to get married here need to contact the local Duns registration office (01361 886 110) to obtain the legal document that will be signed in church.
Believing that, with proper preparation, second chances should be given for those whose first marriages have failed the current rector is open to marrying divorcees so long as the current relationship was not the cause of the breakdown of the former. However, he does have to obtain the bishop's licence to do so.
Since our aim is not only to make the service special and memorable, but also to help the couple have a rich and lasting relationship it is our policy to encourage all couples wishing to have a service in our church to undertake a marriage preparation course of some kind. For couples coming from a distance that can be arranged with a church local to the couple's residence.
The fee for a wedding of £250 is set by the Church Vestry (management committee) and includes the organist and the time spent by the rector in preparing the couple.
