Jesus: “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
The Bible: Mark 10:6-9 (ESVUK)
Bispham All Hallows is an attractive building for a traditional marriage service, and we endeavour to make you very welcome and to guide you on the way to your wedding. To be married at All Hallows, one of you must either live in the parish, or worship at the church, or have a past connection with the church, possibly through your parents (“Qualifying Connection”): we can help you to navigate this pathway.
If you have been previously married, it may be possible for us to solemnise your Holy Matrimony, depending on the circumstances.
You can contact the Office and arrange an exploratory meeting, or a full booking meeting with the Rector. We will invite you to a Saturday Preparation Course (with lunch!) and a shorter meeting when you craft the wedding with hymns, readings and so forth. Shortly before you are married, we will hold a rehearsal in the church building to ready you for the big day. We are always happy to chat through options and possibilities to make your day special.
