Get married at one of our beautiful churches
In the marriage ceremony, a couple make a public declaration of lifelong commitment to love each other.
A commitment, by its nature, is a challenge. Saying ‘I will’ to those vows obliges you to forgive and be forgiven. It will be tough at times! So marriage is a risk, but a risk worth taking.
Marriage has always been part of God’s good plan for us. There is something in a public commitment of this magnitude that has a spiritual element to it and which can transform a relationship to a new and deeper level. God intended marriage to be the right place to grow in love and support for each other, fulfil our sexuality and provide a stable and secure environment for bringing up children. Marriage can change us for the better, and as we change, our marriage grows along with us.
A wedding is a grand occasion for family and friends and marks a new beginning for a new family. Jesus loved a good wedding: his first recorded miracle was when he turned water into wine at a wedding reception (John 2).
We are delighted that you are thinking of celebrating your wedding in one of our churches. Each of our churches offers a unique atmosphere for your wedding day and our clergy love conducting services and will do all they can to make your day special, reflecting your unique love for one another.
A marriage application form can be downloaded by clicking here. Please complete it and email it to the Parish Office. When your application has been processed and the date and time of your wedding confirmed, you and your fiancé will be invited to attend a Marriage Preparation course. These courses run regularly over three midweek evenings and include refreshments, activities and guidance in a relaxed atmosphere. We hope this will be a good addition to your plans for your wedding day and your married life.
You will be contacted by the person taking your wedding to discuss the order of service, book a wedding rehearsal and answer any questions you may have.
If you do not attend any of our churches yet, why not start coming regularly to a service now? It will give you the opportunity to get to know us better and for us to get to know you. Also you will be able to get familiar with the church building and start feeling at home.
