Lloyd/Hoult Wedding, 14th May 2022

St Bart’s was pleased to welcome friends and family of Rachel Lloyd and Benjamin Hoult to their wedding, which had been twice delayed by Covid. The chosen hymns were ‘Come to a Wedding’ and ‘Lord of the Dance’ and the Rev. Anne officiated. As the bells rang out, everyone posed for photographs in the church grounds on the hottest day of the year so far, before heading for the reception at the Macdonalds Portal Hotel in Tarporley. May God Bless Rachel and Ben and grant them a long and happy marriage.

Anne officiated and the reception that followed was in The Badger Inn, next door. May God bless them both with a long and happy marriage.

St Bart’s was pleased to host the wedding of Richard Douglas and Rebecca Wilkinson today. Cafe Church regulars, with son Charlie and Mum, Jacqueline, this was a doubly special day with a Thanksgiving service for Charlie after the wedding. Not even the weather outside could dampen spirits in church as both made their vows with the Rev. Anne officiating.
After the service everyone moved on to Willington Hall for the reception.
We wish them both a long and happy marriage and look forward to seeing them again soon.

Jonathan Lloyd & Sarah Newton Wedding

Over eighty guests and church members watched Jonathan and Sarah get married in St Bart’s on a warm August day. Sarah was brought to church in a vintage car and was escorted by her father, Martyn Nichols, up the church path, with not a drop of rain in sight. That changed very suddenly during the following service, but by the time the happy couple emerged from church again, it had dried up. Rev. Canon John Malbon officiated and the reception followed at Crewe Hall. We wish them all the very best for many years of happy marriage to come.


Robert Ganner & Stacey Jones Wedding

Robert Brian Ganner married Stacey Marie Jones at St. Bartholomew’s on June 20th, just as the rain cleared and the sun came out.

Both are from Coppenhall but have been worshipping at St. Bart’s for the last year and can be seen in many of the Messy Church photos.
Their colour theme was Pink, White and Ivory, with the bridesmaids in silver.
After their wedding they returned to Coppenhall for their reception.
May God bless you both.
