St Wilfrid's Church, Doxford

​'Blessing our Communities in Jesus name for the transformation of all'


Those who live within the Parish of St Wilfrid's can request to be married at St Matthew's Church, Silksworth and normally our Vicar, Rev'd Susie Thorp would take the service.


We seek to make your wedding personal and memorable for you, St Matthew's Church is a special place and there are some things about a church wedding that you just can’t get anywhere else.

Today more than quarter of all marriages in England take place before God within a Church of England church. All are welcome to marry in church regardless of belief, whether or not applicants have baptised, or even go to church.

A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The service includes God and looks to Him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the main attraction for many couples, whatever their beliefs.

The Vicar has a very particular role to play in your wedding. We can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Getting to know the Vicar will help make your wedding personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.

St. Matthew’s Church building offers many years of history. Imagine all the couples who have married there, some of whom may well be within your family. You can feel you’re becoming part of history itself, the bigger plan, by marrying in the same place as your relatives. We know these sorts of connections make your day even more special.
