Getting married is one of the most important decisions we make in life. As well as being a big commitment, it has an impact on family, friends and the whole of society and of course the wedding itself is a very special day. Many people like to hold their wedding in church so that they can receive God’s blessing at the beginning of their married lives together. If you are divorced it is still possible to marry in church and so please ask.
The story of your relationship as a couple may have begun fairly recently or years ago. Either way, getting married is a whole new beginning for you, your family and others in your life.
The good times - The Church of England is a big supporter of marriage! A good marriage has a positive effect on couples and all those whose lives they touch as a result of that marriage. Here’s why.
The tough times - The vows you make in the marriage service acknowledge that life has its ups and downs. It’s important to recognise that difficult times will come along, but that it’s also possible to be prepared in order to cope.
The special times - There’s so much to celebrate throughout a marriage and how you mark special occasions after your wedding, whether your own or those of your wider family, might change.
If you were married in a civil ceremony, even if it was some time ago, and would like a service of blessing, please contact Revd Barbara Hilton to discuss the options.
No two weddings are the same, and we will do everything we can to make the service about you, your love, and your commitment to one another.
If you wish to find out more about being married at St. Peter’s please contact Revd Barbara Hilton.
Renewal of Vows
There are certain times, such as a significant wedding anniversary, when it is good to make a special occasion out of the renewal of wedding vows. As with weddings, these are special days when we honour the love and commitment between two people. If this is something that you would like, please contact Revd Barbara to discuss your plans
