A wedding is one of life's great moments, a time of solemn commitment as well as good wishes, feasting and joy. We would love to be able to host your wedding in Mitcheldean or Abenhall.

""Marriage is a gift of God in creation through which husband and wife may know the grace of God. It is given that as man and woman grow together in love and trust, they shall be united with one another in heart, body and mind..." - Common Worship - Marriage Service

Preparing the Way

Marriage is intended by God to be a creative relationship, as his blessing enables husband and wife to love and support one another in good times and in bad, and to share in the care and upbringing of children.

For Christians, marriage is also an invitation to share life together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. It is based upon a solemn, public and life long covenant between a man and a woman, declared and celebrated in the presence of God and before witnesses.

How much do weddings cost?

The overall cost of a church wedding will vary greatly depending on your requirements but there are two fixed costs.

  • the Service in Church - £463

  • Additionally, an Organist Fee of £75 for Mitcheldean or Abenhall is charged.
