Frequently asked questions about Weddings at Holy Trinity

Why get married anyway? ​

Christians believe that marriage is a special relationship created by God. It involves a public commitment to a lifelong relationship of faithfulness and love between a man and a woman. This commitment is spelled out in the vows that the couple make to each other in the marriage service. Christians believe that marriage with its commitment to permanence offers the degree of stability and security that we all need in relationships and that the children of those relationships also need.

 

What is the difference between marriage and living together?

Marriage is based on a public declaration of lifelong commitment between a man and a woman. With living together there may or may not be a commitment for life and usually the commitment has not been expressed publicly.

 

Who can get married at Holy Trinity? 

For a couple to get married at Holy Trinity normally one person must either live in the parish or be on the church electoral roll. In some cases others who have a strong link with the church, but do not live in the parish, are able to marry at Holy Trinity. Please contact the church office for details. Where one person has been married before and the previous partner is still alive normally a Service of Prayer and  Dedication after a Civil Marriage is offered, though in exceptional circumstances a full church wedding may be possible under the latest Church of England guidelines.
