We are delighted when we are approached by a couple wanting to get married. Marriage is a gift of God, it is something we wish to support and celebrate. However there are legal rules about who can get married where, so if you are considering a wedding at Hayton Church, do please get in touch with the vicar as your first step so we can clarify what’s possible.

Of course we recognise also that married life can be tough, that there’s no such thing as a perfect marriage, and that we are human and sometimes marriages break down.  This is why we ask couples who are planning a wedding in our churches to attend a Marriage Preparation Day in the March before their wedding. It’s why we believe the resources of faith and prayer, guidance and  forgiveness that the Church offers are so important. If you want to get married in church and have been married before, don’t hesitate to get in touch.  I’d be very happy to have a conversation about the way forward and what is possible.
