The legal fees for a marriage cover the publication of the banns, certificate of banns (if necessary), the marriage service and a certificate of marriage. These fees are fixed centrally. On top of that are the Verger’s expenses, contribution to church heating and the organist’s fee.

These fees do not cover any extras you may wish to have for the service, such as fees for video recording (as the church has to have a license for this), flowers etc..
