The Parish of Ponteland

Weddings

Getting married is a huge step - even if you've been together for years - and many people will try and get you to spend, spend and spend. There are many different venues available, all sorts of beautiful buildings, and many lovely places where you can get married.

We offer two exceptionally beautiful buildings. We offer you bells, an organ, musicians. With our help, you can make it - in a very special way - your service. You can involve your friends and family. Together we will choose your readings and music, and put together a service for you.

We have years of experience. Men and women have been married in St Mary's for a thousand years, and at Holy Saviour for a hundred years. Peter the Vicar has been marrying people for 20 years - Christine for a few less than that - and we still enjoy it. It is a huge privilege working with couples, getting to know them, finding out their hopes and their plans, and supporting them through marriage.

We have a community that will love and support you - and hold you in our prayers. They will welcome you when you come to church beforehand, be interested and excited by your plans. You are not just hiring a venue for a day. We will still be here in a few years time when you bring your children for baptism - and when, in 50 years, you want a venue to celebrate your Golden Wedding.

It is possible to get married after a divorce ... (we talk about it first), it is possible to involve your children in your marriage ... you don't have to get married on a Saturday ...

Lots of questions are answered at http://www.yourchurchwedding.org/ - and if you have any other questions please contact us. A leaflet "Your Wedding at St Mary's" is attached here and the leaflet for "Your Wedding at Holy Savour" is attached here.

Maureen, our Church Administrator, is your first point of contact (as she keeps the Diary). Peter will then arrange to meet you. We offer a Wedding Workshop in the autumn or spring before your big day. You will meet Peter (and whoever is marrying you) a couple more times before the service, and have a rehearsal the day before the Ceremony. Then we hope you'll come and see us afterwards - we want to see the photos!
