Himself taught that marriage is the union of one man and one
woman for life to the exclusion of all others (Matthew 19:4-6)
Christian Church encourages couples on that wonderful journey.
Here at St. Mary's we want you both to enjoy all that your
future holds together under God and we believe this church is a
truly beautiful setting to help enhance your wedding day. Whether or not you are baptised
or go to church regularly we welcome you and want to help you
make the most of this special day, and of the days ahead of you
are a number of different connections you may have with St.
Mary’s Church which will qualify you to be married here, in
addition to you or your partner living in the parish or
worshipping regularly here, and we will be delighted to offer
help, guidance and advice.
couples who wish to get married in St. Mary’s will benefit from
a number of meetings designed to help with preparation for their
wedding service, as well as offering practical guidance for
their relationship. The Wedding Preparation Evening provided
information about the wedding itself, considering both what it
means to be married in a Christian service in addition to
addressing practical aspects such as legal requirements, choices
for readings, hymns, music, flowers, bells and so on.
Preparation Course ran over 5 consecutive evenings, using an
DVD presentation each week which offered a range of ideas and tools
for each couple to strengthen their relationship. Coupled with
refreshments these evenings were a great way to prepare for
the next exciting stage in your life together!
