Following the Guidelines laid down in the Diocese, at least six months notice must be given for the Sacrament of Marriage. People considering being married in the Church should contact Father Mike or Father Anthony at as early a stage as possible to find out the exact requirements.

A course of preparation for Marriage is mandatory. There are various options available. One of the options is the FOCCUS course run by Scottish Marriage Care and this is the course those being married in any of the three parishes attend.

Following the course, couples in St Gregory’s and St John Vianney’s return to discuss their experience with Fr Anthony, complete pre-nuptial inquiry forms and plan their wedding service. A rehearsal takes place a few days before the wedding.
