GETTING MARRIED AT
Church and Grounds
Notwithstanding its rural location St Bartholomew's is a surprisingly popular wedding venue. Couples also come to have their marriage blessed, or to renew their wedding vows.
The Victorian church building is of medium size and is set in a well tended and semi wooded churchyard. The building has an intimate feel and comfortably accommodates up to 140 guests.
Ramps are available for wheelchair access in the porch and nave, and a hearing loop has been fitted to the sound system.
There is a car park, of modest size, to the rear of the adjacent village hall building, accessible by a driveway leading from Six House Bank. There is space for 30 vehicles on the hard-standing with (good-weather only) over-spill parking for 30 vehicles on the adjacent grassed area.
St Bartholomew's has access to a robed `youth choir' (based at Surfleet St Laurence) and a robed adult choir (based at Pinchbeck St Mary). Subject to availability, both appreciate the opportunity to sing in support of weddings. Please ask the Vicar for further details.
Please ensure that only bio-degradable confetti, such as dried flower petals, is used in the Church grounds.
While St Bartholomew's has two small bells, these last rang for a wedding in the 1970s and are currently out of commission.
Couples are welcome to introduce floral arrangements into the Church for the duration of their wedding services. To discuss our guidelines relating to floristry, please contact Mrs Wendy Houghton.
A good wedding photographer will be able to capture memorable images of your wedding day calmly and unobtrusively. To ensure that everything goes smoothly on the day, we ask for your photographer to be present at the wedding rehearsal.
Where a wedding including live music (eg organist, choir) is to be captured on video, it is essential that couples obtain a Video License (see fees below). As St Bartholomew's is an intimate setting with some restricted sight lines, it is doubly important that the videographer and photographer are both able to be present at the wedding rehearsal.
