Holy Trinity is a very beautiful church, and a popular church for weddings. We welcome any inquiries for weddings, and would be delighted to marry you here.
Booking your Wedding
If you think you would like to get married at Holy Trinity, please contact Philip Blackledge, our Rector, as early as possible. Please do this before you book your reception venue to ensure that your chosen date and time are available. Once your date is pencilled in the diary, Philip will go through with you all the paperwork you need to produce, and give you an application form to complete.
We will work with you to make sure that your wedding is tailored for your requirements and is a truly memorable day for you both. The earlier you contact us, the more options are likely to be available.
Can I get married at Holy Trinity?
Sometimes people worry about whether they are “allowed” to marry in church, and feel they don’t want to say anything they don’t believe, or make promises to the church that they cannot keep.
The Bible says “God is love, those who live in love, live in God, and God lives in them”. We believe as Christians to acknowledge that where two people love each other, then God is present, and the church has a duty to acknowledge and celebrate that. We acknowledge that people come to church with a variety of beliefs and thoughts about God, and we want to celebrate that diversity. We therefore desire to do everything we can to make your wedding the best possible.
How much will it cost?
Getting married need not be expensive. We realise how expensive most things are around weddings, and we are committed to keeping prices down wherever possible. The current cost starts at £200, with extra charges being made for choirs, brass bands, acrobats, etc.
Re-marriage after divorce?
If you or your partner have been married before, we support those who wish to commit themselves to a new marriage and are normally able to remarry you, depending on circumstances. Many members of the church have experienced the pain of divorce, and whilst there are some formalities to go through, and some discussion to be had, divorce is not a bar to being married in Holy Trinity.
Marriage of same-sex couples
The Scottish Episcopal church recently voted for same-sex couples to be married in church, using the same criteria as for opposite-sex couples. If you would like to be married in our church we welcome you and invite you to contact the Rector.
