Weddings

Congratulations on your engagement!

Cairo Street Chapel is a place of worship formally registered for marriages. You will need to complete a notice of marriage. This is a legal requirement and can be done up to 12 months in advance of your ceremony date. Notices must be given at least 28 days clear of your ceremony date.

We are a historic Unitarian Chapel set in a secluded walled garden in the heart of the town.

Your sacred ceremony will be conducted by a Minister or Accredited Lay Preacher. You may wish to write your own vows.

Unitarians actually take very seriously the old Catholic teaching that at a wedding the real priests of the ceremony are the bride and groom, not the celebrant. Some couples may create their whole wedding ceremony themselves. Others may choose suitable words and promises. (The Unitarian Path by Andrew Hill)

Wedding Blessings

Many couples who have had a civil wedding decide they would like to dedicate their marriage to God sometime afterwards. We are more than happy to do this for you.

Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. Three things will last forever - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these is love (Saint Paul)

We also offer opportunities for renewal of marriage vows.

Please contact the chapel for further details.
