Wedding Reception Venue

Romantic Wedding Reception Venue in the West Midlands

For many, a church wedding is the ultimate dream. There is something quite traditional about have your vows read in front of family and friends in a church. Your faith may be important to you and your family, and having a church ceremony will mean a lot. From there, of course, you will need a truly special venue to complete proceedings. Rowton Castle can be your perfect wedding reception venue.

Reading the Banns

Helpful detail to consider

Most Church of England marriages require banns to be read out in church before the wedding can take place. The reading of the banns is such a special occasion, when people in church hear of your intention to marry. Banns are read in the parish where each of you lives as well as the church in which are you to be married. The banns are called on in church for three Sundays during the three months before the wedding.

The Church

And your connection

If you are a regular worshiper in a church outside the parish in which you live, it is usually possible to be married there. If you are not a regular worshiper you will likely be expected to attend services for at least six months to become eligible to be married in a church other than your parish church, or have a special connection to the parish in which you would like to marry.

Wedding Advice

You may already have a church in mind, perhaps a parish where neither of you resides or is a regular worshiper – don’t worry, make arrangements to speak to the parish priest as soon as you possibly can.
