It’s great you are thinking about getting married in one of our churches.
We would be delighted to marry you and want to help you celebrate your love for one another.
You can get married in one of the churches in the benefice whatever your beliefs or whether you go to church or not. There are some legal requirements that need to be satisfied but we will explain what they are and help you to meet them, wherever we can.
Where will the wedding be held?
You can get married in Winslow, Great Horwood or Addington church. In general weddings take place between 11am and 3pm. Each of our churches can host different numbers of people and all three offer something a little bit different, allowing you to make the best choice for your circumstances. We would be happy to discuss each one with you and arrange for you to see them.
Getting ready for a wedding
We have three priests in the team who conduct weddings. One of them will contact you to arrange to meet you, in order to get to know you so they can discuss your wedding. We see your wedding as the first day of your married life and so we will also look to help you think about marriage more generally.
We would like to start meeting with you about 4-6 months before the wedding day itself but it’s always sensible to call us as soon as you have decided on a date so we can check the church is free.
Flowers, bells and singing
We can also chat about whether you would like bells to be rung, the church to be decorated with flowers and, if you are getting married at St Laurence in Winslow, whether you would like the choir to sing on the day too.
