Weddings

Holy Trinity Church is not only a beautiful building, in a wonderful village, but a holy place in which to exchange wedding vows with family and friends.  In doing so, you receive the blessing of God.

In order to marry at Holy Trinity Church, you must meet the qualifying connections listed in the section below on Qualifying Connections. There is also comprehensive information on getting married in church on the Church of England weddings website that can be found here.

This is your service and the Vicar at Holy Trinity Church is here to help you celebrate this sacrament in the best way possible – by working with you to plan the shape, form and content of the service; understanding the spiritual and symbolic significance of the words you say and the actions you perform, and of the commitment you are making.

The Wedding Service

A marriage service is a public declaration of love and commitment to your partner. If you choose to get married in church, there is an extra assurance that God cares about your relationship and that his resources and strength are available to help you.
