Fallen in love? Discovered the one for you? Congratulations on this! We are delighted, that you want to affirm this special relationship with God’s blessing before family and friends.
The pastor will officiate at wedding ceremonies outside the church, but reminds you that nothing beats a wedding in church for deep spiritual meaning.
Sometimes the emphasis on the ceremony can overshadow everything else. The pastor sees her role as not only conducting the wedding, but also helping you prepare for your future life together as a married couple where you discover God’s blessing in all aspects of your life. The pastor usually meets four to five times with each couple, one of these being to talk through the ceremony itself.
We warmly recommend you connect with the pastor for pre-marriage sessions at least six months before the date of your wedding.
And please don’t forget to check if the pastor is available on your hoped-for date before making any arrangements!
