Marriage in St Nicolas’ or St Wilfrid’s

If you would like to be married in in either of our churches, simply call the Parish Office on 01323 743301, and we will be delighted to help with your enquiry.

To qualify for a wedding in either of our two churches you will need to meet one of the following criteria in the Parish;

  • Lived in this parish for a period of at least 6 months.

  • Baptised here

  • Prepared for confirmation in the parish

  • Attended church services for at least 6 months

One of your parents, at any time after you were born:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months

  • Attended church services for at least 6 months here

  • or either of your parents or grandparents were married in the parish

If you are unable to meet any of the criteria and you still want to marry here please still get in touch as we can, on occasion, obtain special permission.

It will be our privilege to make your day really special with a traditional Christian Wedding Service in our beautiful, ancient village church. Organ music, choir and church bells can be arranged to suit you and our country churchyard is ideal for all those photographs you will treasure.

While the parish is in interregnum, that is having no resident priest, there are a number of retired clergy who will be glad to help you make your wedding a most memorable day.
