We are always delighted to hear from couples interested in being married at St Stephen Walbrook. We would love to discuss your needs and see whether we can help. The Church of England is historically arranged into geographical parishes, and as the law currently stands, you are entitled to be married in the church of the parish in which you live. Very few people live in the parish of St Stephen Walbrook; so if you would like to be married here, there are some simple formalities that need to be observed to meet the qualifications in other ways. These explained in our leaflet on ‘Getting Married at St Stephen Walbrook’. Please read this and then telephone or email our Priest to discuss your needs.
