Congratulations!!!

You have decided to take one of the most important steps of your life! When we marry, we change from being the people we were, and in a real sense we become part of a mysterious relationship that is so intimate that the Bible likens it to the relationship between Jesus and His Church. When you marry you will make vows to each other, in the presence of God, and before the witnesses whom you have invited. You marry each other, and true marriage is a life-long covenant binding husband and wife to each other.
Planning a Church Wedding
"You are not more or better married by having a ceremony in church. Everything necessary to a wedding can happen perfectly well in a registry office. But many couples feel that at the biggest moment of their lives they want something more than a civil ceremony” (David & Christine Winter).

If we decide to marry in Church, we are declaring to God that we want Him to be part of our wedding day, and ultimately, our lives together in the future. Couples may choose a church wedding because it is traditional. A church tends to be a romantic setting for all the colourful dresses and flowers.

During a marriage ceremony we are to make very solemn vows and promises in the presence of God. If we don’t believe in God, then as a couple, we must decide if a church wedding is really what we want. (Some ministers will be happy enough if you merely want to use the church grounds for photos.)

A minister will also expect couples to attend the weekly church service prior to the wedding taking place.

If a couple have not attended church before, it may seem very daunting at first, but it will also bring a new excitement into their lives as they seek to know the blessing of God in every aspect of their lives together. The local church will also be thrilled to see new faces in the church! You will also get to meet new friends.
Planning an Alternative Venue
“Marriage began long before there were registrars, churches, bridesmaids, iced cakes – or ministers! In the first book of the Bible, Adam and Eve were married without any of those complications. It was simply a matter of their own decision.”
(David & Christine Winter)



Marriage is a personal declaration of your deep love and commitment towards your spouse. Marriage is also a public declaration; we marry before “witnesses” – normally family and friends. We are declaring publicly to them and the wider community that we are now a married couple.



It may be that you are planning for a small wedding with your immediate family and feel that a church building is too large a venue. In special circumstances we can make the smaller room in the church—St Monach’s Aisle— available for a wedding ceremony.
