Get Married in St John’s Church, Wentbridge (near Pontefract)


Walk down the aisle, red carpet treatment, your husband to be waiting for you with his best man. Be surrounded by your bridesmaids and pageboys, your family and friends. Your mum meets you outside the Church, and reassures you before she is escorted by an usher to her seat. Your chief bridesmaid checks your dress is perfect. The vicar asks if you are ready, and you walk into church on the arms of a proud father of the bride or supporter. The wedding march plays as you walk down the aisle. You smile at your family and friends, and then at the front of the church you see your flowers, matching your bouquet. You float on the red carpet, and arrive next to the groom. You give your bouquet to the bridesmaids, who help with your veil.


The wedding begins, the vicar greets the congregation you sing a hymn. The congregation sit, you exchange vows, and wedding rings. The vicar blesses you and pronounces you husband and wife. You kiss and the congregation cheer and applaud. The vicar blesses you, you sing your second hymn, and have some readings and prayers before signing the marriage register.  You process out together, with the chief bridesmaid and best man immediately behind, then the ushers and bridesmaids, and your parents. The photographer stops you for some photos at the church door, then you walk out into your married life together, beginning with more photos, confetti and kisses.

Marriage Preparation.


The vicar takes most weddings, and your initial meeting is with him to book your wedding, then you should see him or the member of the clergy who will be taking your wedding three or four times to talk about the marriage service, music, hymns, vows, readings and also to discuss marriage and relationships and then the wedding rehearsal follows, usually the week of the wedding. The clergy are also available to talk to briefly after church services.
