GETTING MARRIED at st Mary's
Church and Grounds
Pinchbeck St Mary is a large medieval church set in a well tended, semi wooded churchyard. The building is light and airy, and comfortably seats congregations in excess of 500. The west doorway in the bell tower and the long central aisle lend a sense of occasion to bridal processions.
There is a car park, of modest size, to the rear of the building. Good on-street parking is available within Pinchbeck Village.
Wheelchair ramps are available throughout the Nave and a hearing loop has been fitted.
St Mary's has a choir which regularly sings in support of weddings. Our Choirmaster and Organist Mr John Bland will be pleased to meet with you by arrangement, after regular Sunday worship, to discuss your musical requirements.
The church is located within the Pinchbeck Conservation Area. Please ensure that confetti is used only in the lychgate area and not elsewhere within the Church grounds. Please use only bio-degradable confetti, such as dried flower petals.
St Mary's has an eight-bell tower captained by Mr Brian Bunting. Bells are often rung for weddings - more information can be found here.
Couples are welcome to introduce floral arrangements into the Church for the duration of their wedding service, subject to the following guidelines. To discuss any issues related to floristry, please contact Mrs Pat Lake.
A good wedding photographer will be able to capture memorable images of your wedding day calmly and unobtrusively. To ensure that everything goes well on the day, we ask for your photographer to be present at the wedding rehearsal and to be mindful of the following guidelines at all times.
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) and ensure that their videographer and photographer are both able to be present at the wedding rehearsal. This is to ensure that their professional needs can be met in a planned and a balanced way.
