A wedding is one of the most sacred celebrations of the church. It is a formal way of marking a beginning, a commitment, a change of relationships within a family, and a new family within the human community. It is a time for festive gathering of family and friends as well as a very personal experience for the bride and groom. Each marriage should reflect the values and beliefs that the couple share. The primary purpose of the service is to make marriage a joyful celebration of the presence of God in their lives.
