As well as the Reading of the Banns (see above), there are a number of other steps before your big day:
We like the couple to attend our simple marriage preparation group, usually arranged one Saturday over lunch, with other couples who are getting married. The session will include a guide to the ways in which you can personalise your marriage service.
About six weeks before your wedding day, you will meet with Ruth to finalise the arrangements, choice of hymns, readings, Order of Service etc. As the marriage is a legal ceremony, there are some things which must be included.
There will also be a wedding rehearsal, usually in the week before your wedding to which we recommend inviting the main bridal party.
At any point, you can contact Ruth for help and advice – we want to make your wedding day one to remember for all the right reasons.
