Love and Marriage in the 21st century
Sunday will never be the same again at one of Yorkshire’s tallest churches. Instead of its usual Sunday services, Trinity Ossett is opening its doors to a party bus and a magician who will help it to celebrate love and marriage.
Tables will be specially laid out for wedding guests and there will be fashion tips, florists, photographers, sweet-makers and even a mobile wood-burning pizza oven on hand.
For Trinity Church , which towers above the town of Ossett and can be seen from the M1 - will open its doors for its first ever wedding fayre on Sunday April 29.
It follows on from the church’s celebration of love and marriage held over Valentine’s Day in 2010 and vicar, Paul Maybury said this was a further demonstration of the church’s commitment to marriage as a cornerstone of society.
Organiser and Trinity Church member, Caroline Harrison said “I want people to take a fresh look at church today. It is so much more than people realise and I hope this event can begin to break down some of those old myths and expectations.
The event is also designed to put the newly redeveloped church firmly on the map as a tourist and events venue.
Over 22 stalls are already signed up and include the traditional with florists, photographers, bridal and cars to the truly different including a party bus, magician, bonbons and a mobile pizza stove.
The church will be represented with its own stall and there will be a fashion show twice during the event. It runs from 11 – 4pm on April 29.
