What Couples Say

Following a wedding at either Christ Church, Great Ayton or Saint Oswald's Church, Newton under Roseberry, it is quite common to receive a Thank You from the couple. We always aim to make the service as special as possible and hope that it will be remembered for being the most important part of a very special day. Here are some comments received from 2016 and 2017.

 

We choose to marry at St Oswalds after attending a Christening there. Not only is the church in a beautiful setting, and has a wonderful warm atmosphere that welcomes all who attend but has Rev Paul Pevell who is wonderfully unique and engaging. In order to qualify to marry there we attend church for 6 months prior to the wedding. We quickly felt part of the church family and found that we looked forward to the services. Prior to the wedding we attended an information event with other couples and members of the church which was invaluable as it answered a number of questions we had and also helped us to make decisions. The wedding rehearsal helped to settle nerves and prepare us for the big day. The wedding itself was perfect in our eyes. The service had the right balance as was both traditional and modern. The puppet show and song performed by Paul was truly memorable and all our guests told how much they enjoyed the service. It was our favourite part of the whole day and we feel privileged to have been married there. We intend to continue to attend services at St Oswalds and would recommend it without hesitation to other couples.

 

It was an excellent day and can I also say everyone who attended absolutely loved st oswalds and your entertainment! Thank you for help making our day as special as it was!

Dear Paul,
We just want to Thankyou so so much for marrying us. You said to us that fate brought us to Christ church and I truly believe you are right, we could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony! It was absolutely wonderful! We loved every minute of our marriage ceremony ... The ceremony was the perfect balance of religion and personal. And I have to say our guests were absolutely blown away by you! I think everyone of our guests told us at some point in the day  .... that it was the best wedding service they had been to!  (... = bits about me removed for modesty!)

You never fail to make me smile with your truly unique style making it so memorable to us and everyone who came. Our ceremony was everything we could of asked for and more we talked about it all day and hopefully for a long time to come.

"Just wanted to say again how very grateful we all are for the fantastic service yesterday. I have NEVER been to a wedding service that has been so well received by the entire congregation. So many of our friends and family have said they want you to celebrate their marriage or the marriage of their children (even though the children are not yet in their teens - haha!!) Please pass on our thanks to the ladies in your church who helped make the day so special."

 

"We loved our ceremony, thank you sooo much. You will certainly continue to see us on a Sunday"

"Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing ceremony. You did exactly what it said on the tin because all everyone talked about was the service and we wanted the service to be the main event and it was. We had the best day of our lives it was the perfect day."

 

"Thank you so much for the uplifting, relaxed service at our wedding in July. we would like to pass on to you the wonderful comments from our family and friends - everyone was really impressed. Thank you also in helping us prepare for our marriage and for being such an open and welcoming Church."

"Thanks so much for providing not only a beautiful Church for our ceremony, but also an original service that our guests have not stopped discussing since the wedding day!"

 

"At every wedding we go to, people are still talking about our service! You said you wanted the service to be the highlight of the day and it was."
 

"Thank you to you and all who helped to make our wedding so special. Everyone said how much they enjoyed it, and thought it was very relaxed, welcoming and warm. What a wonderful way to start our married life together."

 

"We just wanted to say thank you for our wonderful wedding service. The service was so bespoke and special due to your unique style. You had everyone talking about how wonderful your service was for weeks after."
