Making Your Dreams Come True

Your Blessing in the Church of England

Our beautiful churches are between Pontefract and Doncaster, just off the A1(M) and M62 motorways. We welcome couples to our churches who live anywhere in the world.

Who is a Wedding Blessing Suitable for?

A wedding blessing is ideal for the newly married., especially those who have got married overseas, and who could not have all their family with them.  It is also ideal for couples who have been married some time who wish to renew their wedding vows in Church, especially on a wedding anniversary. We welcome couples with or without children.

Do we have to be married?

Usually to have a wedding blessing you need to be married.

What happens in a Wedding Blessing?

Because you are already married you enter the Church together, but you can invite guests, enter together  in your wedding dress and wedding suit, walk down the aisle together to the wedding march, receive God’s blessing, and have photographs taken. We will bless your wedding rings, pray that God will bless you, and you recall the vows made at your wedding.

How to Book a Wedding Blessing

Please phone the vicar on 01977 704744, or email at revjudd at gmail  dot com (all lower case). If you live in a different parish and we are too far away why not have a wedding blessing in your own local church?

The renewal of wedding vows is often a much more informal service in feel than a wedding blessing for the newly married. Both are lovely services.

The couple leave the Church together, or may remain for photographs.
