Marriage Guidelines:

Welcome to St. Mary’s Parish Banff, please read below the guidelines for booking your wedding in the Rockies.

Contact must be initiated by the Bride or Groom only. Weddings are celebrated on, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 11:00 am or 2:00 pm. Please contact the parish office at stmarysparishbanff@outlook.com to REQUEST YOUR DATE.

We will advise you by return e-mail if this date is tentatively available for you. Please do not book the venue for your reception until you have confirmed your date with the church. Rehearsal times will be at 3: 00 pm or 5:00 pm the day before as long as this does not conflict with parish activities.

Once your date is tentatively booked we will need a letter from the clergy that is preparing you, to inform us that he has begun the process and it is okay to book your celebration. After we have received this letter you will be informed that your wedding date is still tentatively booked.

We will send you an official booking form which must be completed and mailed along with a cheque for $1500.00 for the wedding service and another cheque for $500.00 for damage deposit which should be dated the day of your celebration.
The damage deposit will be returned after your wedding as long as there is no damage. If there is any damage,pictures will be taken.

Your date will be officially placed in the parish calendar upon receipt of the booking form and fees. Please note that there is a non-refundable Booking Fee of $200.00.

Anniversaries:

Anniversaries can be booked at any time as long as they do not conflict with any other activity in the parish. The suggested donation without communion is $250.00 and with communion is $500.00.
