Weddings at St Bartholomew’s and St Mary’s

If you’d like to have your wedding at St Bartholomew’s or St Mary’s, we’d be pleased to hear from you.

But the first step is to make sure you are eligible to have your wedding in this parish. Click here to go to the web page ‘Who can get married at St Bartholomew’s or St Mary’s?’ for more information.

The video below, from the church of England website, also gives useful advice and information.

Choosing your church

If you are eligible to be married here, you may want to think about whether St Bartholomew’s or St Mary’s church is the most suitable for your wedding.

Both churches are set in the lovely countryside of north-east Worcestershire.

St-Barts-main-door-2a-wrOf the two, St Bartholomew’s is better suited to larger weddings. It has space for up to 229 guests in the church, plenty of parking and a variety of places nearby to use as backdrops for your photos.

There’s also a church hall and a community hall within the grounds of the church, both of which are available to hire. We can give you information about the church hall, but the community hall is run by a separate organisation. Click here to go to the Tardebigge Community Hall website.

St-Mary's-interior-wrSt Mary’s is ideal for more intimate weddings, with space for up to 50 guests in the church. It’s a charming rural chapel, on a quiet country lane and surrounded by open fields about 3 miles south of Tardebigge. (Click on the image to see a larger version.)

Helping you plan your wedding

We can give you advice about arranging your wedding when you visit the church office.

But we also hold special Wedding Evenings every year, usually in the Spring, for couples who are getting married in the following twelve months.

This is a social event, with refreshments, where you can meet the vicar and the choir master to ask any questions you have about any aspect of the wedding – for example about the order of service, readings, music, photography or flowers.
