Weddings

Many couples choose to get married at St Andrew’s or St Bartholomew’s each year. All wedding couples are invited to attend a “wedding  morning” at St Andrew’s in January, covering all the practical aspects of the wedding day, and each couple will also have an interview with the minister who will conduct their wedding. But preparing to get married is more than sorting out the wedding day! 

In the busyness of organising a wedding, one of the hardest things for couples is to take time out and focus on their relationship, and on what the life-long commitment of their marriage vows really means. So, in addition to the wedding morning, all couples attend two ‘marriage preparation days’. We use a DVD-based marriage preparation course, which covers very practical issues, including commitment, communication and resolving conflict. The DVD offers some input, and then there are pauses for you and your partner to talk to each other. There will be a chance to spend time with other wedding couples over coffee and lunch (provided), but in the sessions themselves you only have to talk to your partner!

If you would like to apply to have a wedding at St Andrew's or St Bartholomew's, or for more information, please contact the Church office via Contact Us.
