A wedding is one of life’s great moments, a time of commitment as well as good wishes, feasting and joy. We are delighted to support and work with couples preparing for their Marriage Service in Church. You are welcome to have a chat with the Vicar (01691 653467) about your hopes and plans, or you may prefer first to explore the Church of England wedding website

You’ll need to discover if your preferred church is legally available to you for your wedding. St. Oswald’s Parish Church is linked with Christchurch, Rhydycroesau. If you have lived, or regularly attended church, in either of these parishes, then it should be possible to marry in either church. There are several other possibilities for a “qualifying connection”, and you can find them by following this link:

Marriage is a commitment “till death us do part”, but we acknowledge that marriages do themselves die, and we welcome wedding enquiries from divorced people. It is not legally possible at present for couples of the same sex to have a Marriage Service in the Church of England.

Popular places for wedding receptions often get booked up 18 months in advance, so it’s helpful to enquire about places and dates for your wedding reception before agreeing a date for the church service. A wedding does not have to be on a Saturday.

There’ll be an opportunity to meet with the priest who will be officiating at your wedding, to plan service details, discuss legal requirements and fees. Then, nearer the wedding day, there’ll be a time for the two of you to rehearse in church. We look forward to helping make the wedding day your special day.

For more details, please contact the church, by phoning the Parish Office on 01691 652861 . The  Office (at the church) is open by appointment on the above number.
