Welcome + Worship + Witness

First Wedding of the Year

The first wedding of the year at Bolton Priory took place on Saturday 11th July between Oliver O’Brien and Emma Lawson-Matthew.

All weddings at Bolton Priory had been cancelled since lockdown at the end of March and Oliver and Emma were the first couple to get married since the restrictions were lifted on the 4th July. There were just ten guests at the wedding and the honeymoon is being spent in the United Kingdom.

The Rector, Reverend Nicholas Mercer remarked how lovely it was for weddings to recommence at Bolton Priory and to witness couples making their vows to each other in the sight of Almighty God, untroubled by the limitations to the ceremony and celebrations.
