It’ll be okay, try to stay calm! The same thing happened to me two weeks before my wedding…except mine never called, he just stopped returning anyone’s calls and disappeared on me. Just sit down and make some phone calls…if you have a DOC or planner or anything I’d get with them, or ask the priest or the place where you’re being married if they have any recommendations. We ended up NOT getting a chance to meet ours, but we had several phone conversations and e-mails, and in the end he actually did a better job than I think the first guy would have, so it all worked out. Hoping the same happens for you!

Do you have to have a priest? Is a JOP not an option?  If its not strict I’d say keep your options open.

ETA: Just saw your update. Frown  Best of luck to you.

What type of church?

And what has your priest been called interstate for? It’s obviously not a funeral. What else trumps a wedding commitment?

So when they say the replacement must be from “their church”, do you know if they mean any Anglican church, or that particular one?

Not that I’m sure that helps, unless you know someone who knows someone. At least the priest is organising a replacement.

Hopefully that all works out!  I was going to ask if there was a Deacon or someone else who is with the church that could replace him?

I hope everything goes well!
