WEDDINGS

Although there are still COVID-related restrictions, weddings can now be booked.

If you are considering getting married in a church, the Chapel at Newstead Abbey or St. Peter’s Church are great venues. For all that’s legally required a church wedding can cost less than £600… there are obviously extras that you can add to this but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Both are very different venues. The Abbey Chapel offers a small venue within Newstead Abbey and St Peter’s Church is a modern larger space.

A church is so much more than a wedding venue. God will be there with you to bless you – on the day and always. It’s a spiritual, personal and beautiful ceremony which you can personalise. If you would like to look at a what a church wedding can offer then visit www.yourchurchwedding.org
