Getting Married – Blakeney Church
Let us provide the perfect setting for your union before the eyes of God and the most memorable day of your life.
Weddings are available at Blakeney Church throughout the year and our Church has always been a well-loved setting for the celebration of unions.
The church’s warm atmosphere and facilities make it fully functional as a wedding space, with a seated capacity of 300 and ample standing space. We are happy to welcome qualifying couples from near or far and extend our local community’s spirit to you on your special day. (you can check this via the link www.yourchurchwedding.org – just engaged – legal requirements – marrying away from where you live).
If you would like to make Blakeney Church the location for your wedding, you will work closely with our Reverend Libby Dady, who will discuss with you what service we can provide for you. The close relationship between the to-be-wedded couple and our church is one that always creates a beautiful and memorable wedding day.
The Perfect Day
Blakeney Church’s musical facilities illuminate its stunning interior. We are in possession of both an organ and a grand piano and are able to organise the Benefice Choir by arrangement of a small fee.
Should you wish to bring your own music via audio or MP3, the church is fully equipped with a PA system, Should you be planning your wedding service during the Winter months, our church is fully heated (both by a boiler and overhead).
A reception ‘package’ is available.
There is also a wonderful local flower service available should you wish us to source arrangements for you by our very own Church Flower Group.
