Welcoming children to a wedding
Whether you are taking children to a wedding as guests, or your child is taking part as a bridesmaid or page boy, we welcome children!
Praying for the happy couple
Prayers are a big part of what makes a church wedding unique. It’s not just the vicar who prays – everyone gets involved.
Being a witness for a wedding
Recording your wedding is a wonderful way to preserve the memories of your special day – it is valuable to be able to show it to others and also to see it again over the years to come.
Being an usher
Ushers have an important role in making the wedding ceremony run smoothly. They have several duties on the day and also support the groom and best man in the lead up to the wedding.
Being a ‘best man’
Most grooms will choose a best man (or woman) from their family or ask a close friend to support them in the run up to their wedding day and on the day itself. With a little advance planning, a ‘best man’ can help the day run like clockwork.
Being a bridesmaid
With colourful dresses, flowers and smiles, bridesmaids and younger flower girls bring a lot of joy to a wedding celebration, but it’s a key role with particular duties too.
Doing a reading at a wedding
There will always be a Bible reading at a church wedding and possibly other types of readings too. If you’ve been asked to read something out on the day, preparation and practice will help you read with confidence.
What to expect as a wedding guest
Everyone at a wedding is part of the service, whether you’re doing something specific like a Bible reading or not – you are witnesses to the marriage and part of the couple’s married life too.
