St Luke's Church

If you’re travelling by public transport then we’d suggest getting to Parkstone station which is a about a 10 minute walk from the Church.
If you fancy a coffee or something to eat before the ceremony then there are lots of nice cafes near by, Hels recommends The Red Roaster or The Dancing Moose!

If you’re driving from the Church to Parley Manor and have space in your car please let one of the ushers know at the end of the service if you’re happy to give someone a lift, thank you!

Parley Manor

If you need to arrange a taxi for the end of the night, we can recommend using United Taxis (01202556677). They suggest booking in advance online or using their app to make sure you’re not waiting too long! Follow this link: https://556677.com/

If you have driven to the reception, you can leave your car at Parley Manor overnight for no charge but please collect it by 11am the next day.

Thank you for the invitation. We would very much liked to come to your wedding, but I am already booked to be away for the whole weekend in Northampton for the United Reformed Church General Assembly. We do wish you every blessing in your new life together - and hope that we will see you soon at another family gathering.
With lots of love,
Catherine and Peter
