Weddings in 2020

We believe in marriage and we love weddings! If you are planning a marriage and are thinking of having your wedding in church, we would love to be a part of your plans and your special day.

You’re welcome to marry in the Church of England whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are christened and regardless of whether you go to church or not. It’s your church, and we welcome you!

At this time, due to government advice, we can only hold smaller weddings in our churches. Up to 30 people are allowed to attend (including the couple and the vicar), everyone in attendance (except the couple and the vicar) must wear face coverings. Music is allowed, but no singing. We have held one wedding in 2020 during this time of restriction, so if you would like to chat with the Vicar about how that went and what your wedding might look like, please don’t hesitate to contact him.

If you would prefer to delay a wedding you already have booked, or to book a wedding sometime in the future, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your vicar, Mike Barnsley – mike@cinderford-churches.org.uk / (01594) 822286.

Weddings ‘normally’

We believe in marriage and we love weddings! If you are planning a marriage and are thinking of having your wedding in church, we would love to be a part of your plans and your special day.

You’re welcome to marry in the Church of England whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are christened and regardless of whether you go to church or not. It’s your church, and we welcome you!

More than a quarter of all marriages in England take place in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. Parliament recently changed the rules about which churches you can get married in, giving you a lot more options. Marrying in church has never been easier!

Please get in touch with Mike, your vicar, with any questions or to discuss possible dates.

Please follow the following links for more information about which churches you can get married in and the costs of a church wedding.
