Ok so thought the Church was all organised until this week when I had to call the church Warden.\n\nLong story short but our Vicar has retired and left no records behind of any weddings next year. We have paid the deposit to secure the date but there is no record of this either. \nIt's all getting a bit stressful as even though we have had a meeting with the Vicar that has retired who I knew well, we have been told that we now have to go and have a meeting with the Canon as there are no records that we have been given permission. They want to check that this is a rea marriage as there have been problems with this in the Diocese (we live in Northamptonshire so proves it happens everywhere.) \nAlso no-one seems to know what the costs are for next year! They told us to go to the church and look on the notice board that only has last years prices and we were told that they would be increasing. \nDo any of you lovely ladies have any idea what the cost of a marriage is in Church next year. Also if you don't mind telling me what are the other costs of having the bells etc?\n\nThanks in advance.
