We are delighted that you are interested in finding out about the possibility of having your wedding at Holy Trinity.
 
If you are thinking about being married at Holy Trinity then we suggest that you come to a service and speak to Martin, the vicar, afterwards. This will enable you go get a feel for what Holy Trinity is like and allow you to ask any questions you have. We suggest that you contact us as soon as possible – it is best to come and talk to us when you are booking your reception venue to avoid disappointment.
 
Part of a church wedding is to help prepare you for married life - You will never make such big promises to each other as you will on your wedding day. To help you prepare we ask couples to join The Marriage Preparation Course (either locally with us, or a course local to where they live). This provides an opportunity to think and talk with your fiancé about your marriage, the vows you will make and the difference they will make.

Changes to the law in 2008 relaxed who can be married at Holy Trinity. If you live outside the parish you can now be married at Holy Trinity if you can demonstrate one of seven 'qualifying connections' with the Church. You can be married at Holy Trinity church if you can show that one of you:
  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  • was baptised in the parish or
  • Congratulations to Lucy & Russ who married at Holy Trinity
