You can make your own arrangements for the flowers or use the flowers that we provide.
There are three alternatives open to couples who are getting married with us:
A Your relatives and friends arrange the flowers
B You choose to employ a profession florist
C You choose to use the Church flowers
If you choose option C then our volunteers will seek to provide three arrangements: one in the porch, one by the memorial desk and one by the chancel steps by the pulpit. These arrangements are normally multi-coloured and unfortunately we are unable to provide bespoke colours or additional arrangements. Please note that we do not provide flowers during Lent.
If you choose option A or B then you or your florist will need to liaise with the Parish Office in advance of your wedding day to arrange access to the church building. Additionally, we ask that you take arrangements such as pew ends and Lych Gate flowers with you after the service but that you leave at least the standard arrangements i.e. one pedestal at the front of church and an arrangement in the porch, so that there are some flowers in church for Sunday worship. The only exception to this is during Lent when we would ask you to arrange to have all flowers removed from church.
Please note that if two weddings are taking place in the same church building on the same day then the couples will need to liaise with each other regarding flowers as there will not be time between services to change the flowers.
Please make sure to inform the Parish Office (0161 446 4150) of your decision regarding flowers at least 10 days before your wedding day.
