“DO WE NEED TO BELONG TO A CHURCH FOR YOU TO MARRY US?” A.
No, you do not need to belong to a church, or to be baptized
in order for me to marry you.
“WILL YOU MARRY US WHEREVER WE CHOOSE?”
Yes, I will marry you at the location of your choice, be
it in your home, a chapel, reception hall, park, boat, backyard
“CAN MY CHILDREN BE PART OF THE SERVICE?”
Yes, of course. It is a wonderful opportunity for the
whole family to participate in the wedding. For example when
I ask who supports you in this marriage, it is great to have all
of the family answer. This creates a feeling of commitment
for everyone involved. Everyone joins in union, you might
say, and therefore, shares in the joys of being a part of this great
event. I also have a specific children’s ceremony where, after
you are officially pronounced, the two of you can make vows or declarations
of support to the children, and present them with a ring, necklace
or bracelet as a symbol of the vows you have made to them.
“DO WE NEED TO COME TO ANY PRE-MARITAL COUNSELLING?”
No, it is not a requirement. After all if you have the maturity
to get married, you can make your own decision in this regard.
Pre-marital counselling is available of course, but it is your choice
if you want it.
“HOW LONG IS THE WEDDING SERVICE USUALLY”
Most service usually run for 20-30 minutes. It really
depends on what you want done for your special day. Long before
the actual wedding day we get together and discuss how we, together
can make this one day in your life a day you will for ever remember.
After all, this is your wedding, this is your special day and I
will do everything I can to help you make the memories you want.
