Banns of marriage

Sunday 8 March is now a memorable date for us as it was the date of the first reading of our Banns of marriage. These were read out at St Mary Brookfield, the parish church near Alex’s flat in Dartmouth Park. Both Mike and Alex were present and it was fantastic to hear the words:

“I publish the banns of marriage between Michael Robert Potts of this parish and Alexandra Mary Harris of this parish.
This is the first time of asking. If any of you know any reason in law why they may not marry each other you are to declare it. We pray for Michael and Alexandra as they prepare for their wedding.”

The Banns will be read for the next 3 weeks in St Mary Brookfield, and then on 3 different Sundays in St Michael and All Angels in Blackheath – the church where the wedding ceremony will take place. If you would like to visit us to hear the Banns read, please do let Mike or Alex know.
