The Catholic Parish of Guildford welcome couples wishing to get married in our parish. We, the priests, deacons and people of the Guildford community are witnesses to something special each time a wedding takes place in our churches, or even when we just prepare a couple for a wedding that is to take place elsewhere, sometimes on the other side of the world.
We would like to assure you of our prayers, not only for a successful and happy day, but also for a fulfilling life together for the rest of your lives. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and we will do all that we can to help you arrange it as you wish.
