St Laurence is a beautiful church in an attractive small town setting which is already chosen by many couples as the venue for their church wedding. It has a friendly atmosphere, one of the best church choirs in the area and a fine peal of eight bells.

 

 

                             
             


If you are thinking of getting married in the benefice contact the Rector for more information.  You may also find it useful to read the guidelines on the Oxford Diocese website which describes the requirements for getting married in the Church of England following the recent changes in the law.

 

You may wish to consider using the St Laurence Room for your reception. The picture on the right shows it set out for a small wedding reception. For more information on the St Laurence Room click here.

 

Weddings in the benefice can also be held in either of the other two beautiful churches - St James in Great Horwood or St Mary-the-Virgin in Addington. 

Here are some pictures taken at a wedding weekend held at St Laurence Church, Winslow, in June 2014.


     

 

The church was beautifully decorated with flower arrangements and a fascinating display of wedding dresses through the decades. It brought everyone so much enjoyment and for many people reminded them of the wonderful memories of their actual wedding day.

 

The Rt. Rev. John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford led the Festive Sung Eucharist with a full congregation. His sermon was both inspiring and memorable. How fortunate we were.

 

Thank you to all those involved in organising the weekend. The flower team, and their friends, who for many days were busy arranging the magnificent floral displays; Liz Van de Poll, who had the original idea and for collecting and arranging the wedding dresses; the choir, the musical director, the organist and Sanctuary team; those who served the refreshments; stall holders; bell team; stewards, gardeners and furniture removers who all contributed to the two days before, during and after the event.

It is a weekend we will remember for many years, raising the profile of marriage as well as over £1,600 for Church funds.
