Your big day…

We welcome couples wishing to be married at St Nicholas. There are various legal requirements to be fulfilled for any couple to be married in the Church and it is important before seeking to arrange a wedding in any of the churches in the team that you speak to one of the clergy, or contact Karon in the Parish Office (open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays). The office holds details of the statutory and other fees and other information that you may require before booking your wedding.

All couples are asked to join with others being married in the same twelve months for a Saturday (usually in March) when aspects of marriage are presented and open for discussion and questions. The clergy will guide you through the stages of preparing for your wedding in Church, from the reading of banns to the conduct of the service on the day. Contact details for the clergy can be accessed here and, whilst any of the clergy can give you general help and advice, the clergy for each church that it is best to contact are as for baptisms, above.

St Nicholas' Church, Studland,




Please take time to be still, pray, and get to know our church and its surroundings. This unique Romanesque Norman building has been here for about 1,000 years, but it was built on the site of an earlier Saxon church dating from the beginnings of Christianity in Dorset. Read more
