MARRIAGE

If you are engaged to be married, congratulations!

Please remember that you need to contact your Parish Priest before making any further arrangements, and at least six months notice must be given before you intend to get married. 

Due to high demand, only parishioners or ex-parishioners of St James’ and graduates of the University of St Andrews are permitted to get married in St James. 

For obvious data protection reasons, we do not deal with third-party requests.

If you are a graduate, and you would prefer to get married in St Salvator's Chapel, please check Fr Galbraith's availability in the first instance and follow this link: https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/community/weddings/

Please contact the parish for more information. If you are currently in the process of planning your wedding, please see the attached files below for helpful documents to assist you in planning your wedding day. Contact stjames.standrews@gmail.com for more information.
