Marriage -

Your wedding at Holy Trinity

Congratulations on your engagement! We are excited that you are considering getting married.

If you are getting married in another church, and need us to read your banns, click here

There is nothing quite as special as a church wedding. By choosing to get married in church you are:

  • involving the God who made you;
  • making very special promises to your spouse in front of your family, friends and God;
  • rejoicing in marriage as a wonderful gift from God;
  • recognising we need God's help to keep our marriage promises.
At Holy Trinity, we don't just want to help you have a brilliant wedding but also prepare you for a lifetime together.

So, as part of helping you with your wedding we provide:
  • help in personalising the service with entrance and exit music, hymns and songs (if you want them), and Bible readings;
  • help in finding an organist or musicians (if you need them);
  • marriage (not just wedding) preparation sessions;
  • a commitment to pray for you when your Banns are read and in the build-up to the big day.
What next?

First, if you are a regular member of the congregation, before anything else, speak to the Vicar.

Second, and this is very important if you are wanting to get married at Holy Trinity, please do not confirm any bookings (e.g. with reception venue) until we have confirmed a date with you.

Third, you need to be aware that if you have been married before and your ex-spouse is still alive then we will be unable to marry you this time. Sorry.

Then, fourth, register your interest here on the form at the very bottom of this page. We will then get in contact with you to arrange to meet to talk about your booking. When you come to the bookings session, you will need to bring:

  • your fiancé/fiancée
Each of you will need to bring:
  • your passport OR your birth certificate and proof of current use of name.
  • proof of your address (e.g. recent utility bill)
We would love to talk about helping you prepare for this next stage of life together.
When will I be able to confirm a date?
If you bring your deposit (£100) with you to the booking session we will try to confirm a date for your wedding within ten days of you coming along, though this might be longer if the minister is on holiday.  Otherwise, we will seek to confirm your date within ten days of receiving your deposit. I am afraid we cannot promise that your preferred date will be available so please don’t book anything until we have confirmed when your wedding will be.

In the meantime, why not come and join us on a Sunday to meet the rest of the church community who will be praying for you in the run-up to your big day.  Also, have a look at the "yourchurchwedding" website which contains much of the information you need to help plan your special day.

More information:
  • Your church wedding website with plenty of info about getting married in a C of E church
  • Find out which parish you live in here:
  • The £100 deposit needs to be paid within 6 weeks of booking your wedding and counts towards the cost of your wedding. Please note: should you sadly have to cancel your booking, £50 of this is non-refundable. The other £50 is refundable if you let us know more than 6 months before the wedding date.
