WEDDINGS

Many people look to an English country church to provide grace, beauty, romance and a sense of tradition for their wedding.  A church can provide a wonderful backdrop and atmosphere for a couple to make their marriage vows to one another, and to dedicate their relationship to God in an atmosphere of prayer and worship – to look for his guidance, strength and support that make all the difference to a relationship.

Herefordshire has many truly beautiful church buildings, both in its towns and countryside, but few can rival Eastnor’s location and setting.  In addition to looking wonderful, it is easily accessible from the motorway network via junction 2 of the M50, and the picturesque market town of Ledbury with its hotels, inns and guest houses is no more than a couple of miles distant.

Nor should we forget that the church is also on the doorstep of probably one of the finest wedding venues in the country.  Eastnor Castle.  (For more information about the wedding services offered by the castle, their website can be found at: www.eastnorcastle.com – and examples of other venues which may be of interest in the local area will be provided on our links page.)


In brief, The Church of St John The Baptist, Eastnor, provides seating for approximately 150 guests – though we’ve hosted weddings with a few more than that !  

 

The church can be heated for those atypical English summer days and for wonderful winter weddings.  An extra warm glow can also be generated from the many candles which we are happy to light for you on request.  A wedding by candlelight really has to be seen to be appreciated, although we do have a few photographs on this site of how the church can look.   Beautiful.

Eastnor has a good and experienced organist to help with music at the service, and an experienced team of bell ringers are always delighted to peal out the news of your impending vows.  
If you’d like to discuss holding your wedding at Eastnor Church, then please get in touch with the Ledbury Team Ministry Office on 01531 631531, or by email to Team Office at : Ledbury.ministry@virgin.net .  We’ll send you an application form, together with our introductory leaflet, which details our charges and other important information. To book a wedding, you'll need to complete the application form and return it to us with a deposit of £50. 

If you'd prefer, we've included both the form and the leaflet on this page for you to download.

And remember, you CAN get married at Eastnor, even if neither of your lives in the parish (or area), and you CAN get married here if one or both of you has been previously divorced, though we will need to chat this through with you.

                                                                            We wish you well and look forward to hearing from you.
