The grounds of Ewenny Priory are available to anyone wishing to celebrate their event, whether it be a Civil Partnership, Civil Marriage or Church Marriage. Civil Ceremonies would take place elsewhere as Ewenny Priory does not currently hold a licence to conduct civil marriages or civil partnerships.
Couples can be married in the Ewenny Parish Church, if they are eligible to do so. The law requires that at least one of those to be married should:
- reside in the parish where the wedding is to take place, or
- be a regular worshipper in the parish and to have your name entered on the church electoral roll, or
- have a ‘qualifying connection’. A ‘qualifying connection’ as described in the Marriage (Wales) Act 2010 is that you were baptised or confirmed in the parish, that you or a parent formally lived for at least six months in the parish, that you or a parent formerly habitually attended worship in the parish for at least six months or that a parent or grandparent had been married in the parish
Any questions about getting married in the Ewenny Priory Church should be directed to the Rectorial Benefice of Glamorgan Heritage Coast, the Reverend Canon Edwin Counsell (01446 794503). Office administrator, Alison Weston, 01446 792430. (Office open weekdays 09:00 - 14:30)
