CHURCH: Anglican

For those who would like a traditional Church Wedding, St Andrew's Whitminster, just a few stone steps up from the Manor House and surrounded by the pasture and trees of the Grove, provides a delightful setting.

The church seats c. 120 guests in pews, with further chairs available.

There is temporary parking outside the Church for the use of immediate family and any Church officials required (Rector, churchwardens, organist, bell ringers etc.). There is also a large field adjacent to the Church which can be prepared for guests' cars, together with additional parking for the West Wing and Old Stables.

For the actual Marriage Service, Whitminster is part of the Cotswold Edge Parishes benefice, which is currently 'in vacancy' (does not have a Rector at the moment). For those wishing to have a traditional Wedding Service, please contact Alec Jeakins on 01452 883403 or and he will be able to help advise you what to do and who to speak with. In addition, and because of the vacancy, there may be the possibility of bringing a celebrant (perhaps a family friend or relation) with you (with the correct permissions, of course) to officiate at your service instead.

Whichever option you choose, Alec will be able to explain the requirements for arranging a full Wedding Ceremony in the church, or what to do if you just wish for a Service of Blessing in the Church after a registry office marriage (see below), or if you want a combined service with other denominations.

When you know what you would like, let us know and we can put you in touch with the churchwardens to confirm costs for the service, organist, bell-ringers etc.
