or some, getting married in Church is the only way to do it. There are certainly some very beautiful and iconic places around the UK to hold your church wedding. Minty slippers has a wealth of experience in filming in churches, be it catholic, christian, or any other denomination.

Considering a church wedding?

First of all, congratulations on your engagement. This article is going to show you some examples of weddings we have filmed in churches. We are also going to talk about some of the things you need to consider when getting married in a Church.

So you need to contact the church you want to use for your wedding. If you are marrying outside of your parish, have a look at a Church near you to find the churches in the relevant area. Also, giving the Minister a call is a good idea to them them know you are interested in using their church for your wedding. After that, this list of tips might be useful when considering a church wedding:

  • Do they allow filming in your church? some unfortunate do not, or make it very complicated for us. If having your wedding filmed is on your list of “must have’s” then check this out first.
  • Synchronise dates with your reception venue too.
  • What legal requirements apply to your wedding? some circumstances may take some time to process through the church rules of marriage.
  • Churches get booked up quite quickly in peak wedding season (April to October). Try to book up as quickly as possible once you have decided on a rough date.
  • The Minister will probably want to meet you both; you will probably need to attend some services at the church too.

There is very little we haven't done

The story of Hannah and Chris is an emotional one. Held at the beautiful Wasing Park you have the choice of both worlds. You can choose to get married in their on-site church before heading over to the barn for your celebrations or you can opt for a civil ceremony in the garden room or even outside.

What am I supposed to say?

In the Christian church, this is usually the first part that you speak to each other, and the minster, as follows:

“Will you take Wilma to be your wife?

Will you love her, comfort her, honour and protect her, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?”

Walter answers

“I will.”

The minister says to the bride

“Wilma, will you take Walter to be your husband?

Will you love him, comfort him, honour and protect him, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to him as long as you both shall live?”

Wilma answers

“I will.”

Obviously, Walter and Wilma are fictitious names I have made up for the purposes of this example. If I have caused any offence to Any Wilma’s or Walter’s I apologise 🙂 There are more words to say, and a good place to find out about them is here if you want to read the full text of a Christian wedding ceremony. Catholic and other denominations all have a certainly commonality in the words used. The main thing to bear in mind though, is that where ever you choose to get married, you do it in the way that’s comfortable for you and your partner. We see more and more religious ceremonies being updated to reflect modern tastes and trends. Religious institutions across the UK are changing and listening to the populous to some degree.

You will also have the opportunity to have some readings, some of them have to be religious, and some can be less so. All in all, Church weddings can be a beautiful environment to say some very meaningful words to each other. It’s a fairly normal requirement to have an Order of Service, and its useful for any suppliers at the event to see this too.

It's YOUR decision

The best way forward, is for you to get in touch to have a chat with us about your plans. I think the best thing though, is to read some testimonials and have a watch of some of our films. We really stand out above the rest.
