If you are thinking about getting married at Holy Trinity Church, Berwick,
We would really like to help make your special day as personal and unique to you as possible. Please ask us if you have any questions, or have a look at the Church of England website, which answers many frequently asked questions and gives ideas for different styles of weddings.
Wherever you decide to hold your wedding, we wish you every blessing as you go forward together on this exciting new stage in your lives.
Our prayers go with you, and please be assured of our support throughout the years ahead.
‘For better, for worse. For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish, ’til death do us part’.
About a month before the wedding please contact the vicar to make a date and time for a rehearsal in church. This usually takes place the week before the wedding (so you don’t forget what you need to do!).
The decision to marry is the most important one you will make in your life, and the Church believes therefore that it must not be undertaken ‘carelessly, lightly or selfishly’.
Couples intending to marry must therefore have considered the implications of such a relationship very carefully, after serious and honest thought.
Photographs may be taken before and after the service and during the Signing of the Register.
Photographs during the service by one designated photographer are allowed on the condition that the photographer stays in one position throughout the service and does not use a flash.
Please make sure your guests are aware of this, so that you are not distracted from the solemnity of the occasion.
Before making any reception arrangements please check that the date and time you have in mind are convenient at the church. This should be done as soon as possible by contacting the Vicar, Rev’d Canon Dennis Handley, on 01289 306136.
We hope that these notes are of value to you, and help you enjoy a very happy day.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us. We will remember you in our prayers.
