Weddings and Marriage Blessings

From 4 July 2020 weddings can be held in our church again  

We are delighted considering a church wedding in the historic and beautiful city of Newcastle and the setting of St Nicholas Gosforth. There are now more churches to choose from for your special day and for generations to come

You can marry in a Church of England church if you can show that you have a connection with the parish.

That one of you:

• has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months, or

• was baptised in the parish concerned, or was prepared for confirmation in the parish, or

• has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6

or

That one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

• has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months,or

• has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months 

There are different rules for non-EEA nationals. The vicar will guide you with all of this.

Use A Church Near You to find out which parish you live in or have a connection with. All you need is your postcode.

what do we need to do first? how much does it cost?

Please contact the Reverend Jane Nattrass who will be happy to guide you through the legal steps and ensure that your wedding day is personal, meaningful, spiritual, beautiful… Contact Jane on 07568 530503 or email [email protected]

And, if you’re marrying in a church that’s not where you live, your local church would still love to support you as you prepare for the wedding, and afterwards too.

There are some things about marrying in church that you just can’t get anywhere else.

You may attend or visit the place where you will be marrying as often as you like, there is usually a rehearsal for you and close family and friends – it’s a very special time as you prepare for your wedding day. It’s your wedding. Let us help you make it personal, meaningful, spiritual, beautiful.
