Organising a wedding can be joyful and stressful, all at the same time.
Members in the Diocese of Hereford, in conjunction with local clergy, aim to help couples by offering a friendly point of contact, and introducing them to members of the church community who will be involved in their marriage.
As well as the parish priest, the organist, florist and vergers are just some of the people that the couple will want to meet. Members help by arranging sessions when couples can meet these key people, all at the same time.
Depending on the circumstances, a breakfast or lunch is also provided, so that people can meet and chat informally whilst sharing a meal.
(This initiative is also part of the Cana Ministry run by Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Hereford).
