Can we get married at the churches in Chobham and Valley End?


The laws about who can get married where are complex, and if you have any doubts, it is best to contact Vicar The Vicar of Chobham Chris Bessant on 01276 858197 for advice.

The ministers and church council regret that we are unable to accept any wedding bookings at St Lawrence Church from May-August 2018 due to planned building works. However, St Saviour’s Church at Valley End will be available during that period, so please get in touch with the vicar if you want to find out more.
