It was a childhood dream to have my wedding at this church and I was very excited to book my wedding. The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact there was a wedding an hour after our wedding and their guests started showing up as ours were taking pictures. The other party wasn't happy with us being there and made it clear our time was up even though they arrived 45 min early. The staff wasn't present to help defuse the situtation.

Church of St. Mary, National Churchill Museum responded with the following comments:

This was an out of the ordinary occurrence and will not happen again. As a rule, we only book one wedding per day so this does not happen.

Historic 17th Century English Church

The Church of St. Mary is an original 17th century church originally located in London, England.

During the Great Fire of London in 1666, the church burnt to the ground. Christopher Wren, a famous English architect, redesigned and rebuilt the Church of St. Mary. In 1940 during the Blitz, the Church was gutted after a German incendiary bomb struck the center of the roof. For 25 years after the attack, the Church sat roofless and moss-grown, slated for demolition.

It was in the early 1960's that the proposal was made for the creation of a museum to Sir Winston Churchill and his famous "Iron Curtain" speech, which he delivered at Westminster College in 1946. In 1965, the Church was dismantled in London and shipped, 7,000 stones in all, to Westminster College, where it was reassembled and restored to the condition we see today. It serves as the ecumenical, inter-denominational chapel for the college.

In the 17th century, the church was recognized as the social and religious center for a number of England's major figures including John Milton and William Shakespeare.
