One of the clergy will meet with you to set a date, and then as the day approaches, we will help you to plan the service, hymns, readings, and to prepare for your new life together as a married couple. There will be a rehearsal in church in the week before the big day.

Whether your wedding is in church or not, the church thinks marriage is wonderful and important, and will help and support you before your wedding, and all through your life together.
