We are delighted you are considering being married in Thornhill Parish Church. If you are doubtful about whether you may be married in church please ask. A quarter of all weddings take place in a Church of England church. We average around twenty weddings per year in our church. As well as marrying in church, some couples hold a Service of Blessing after taking their civil vows in a Registry Office.

 Weddings are often planned a long time ahead because of other activities in the church, the fees for a wedding can be seen in the link at the bottom of this page
