Weddings

The ringing of church bells to celebrate a wedding is a wonderful and traditional sound:

“Ringing of bells at weddings is a long tradition that can be traced all the way back to the Celtic lands, where church bells were believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits and grant wishes. Because of that, Celtic newlyweds were blessed with loud ringing of church bells before the wedding which would announce to anyone their newfound happiness. In Scotland, wedding bells were rung at the conclusion of the wedding, just as the married couple was exiting the church. Tradition of ringing bells before and after the wedding successful spread all across the world, becoming one of the most famous part in the modern church wedding.”

If you would like to have the bells rung to celebrate your marriage, please use the Word booking form or the PDF booking form to make your request. The fee is £200 and the request must be made at least eight weeks before your wedding.
