Getting Married In Saddleworth

We want to make your wedding personal and memorable for you. Churches are special places and there are some things about a church wedding that you just can’t get anywhere else.

  • A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage
    The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the main attraction for many couples, whatever their beliefs.
  • You can make amazing promises in a church
    You can only make vows this big in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.
  • The Vicar has a very particular role to play in your wedding
    They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the Vicar, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.
  • A recent testimonial left at

    "Our church wedding experience was without question the most amazing day of our lives. St Anne's is not only a beautiful church it also has wonderful people that attend it. We were asked to attend services for at least 6 months prior to our wedding and it was a pleasure to attend. I could not recommend it more highly."

“In Church it’s marriage in the eyes of God, which makes the commitment a bit stronger, I mean not in yourselves, it doesn't change your feelings, but for some reason it puts that cloud over you– not a nasty cloud, a different cloud. It’s more than legal. It’s different - it’s proper.”
