Getting Married?

Wedding Day

We love weddings and are proud to perform wedding ceremonies throughout the year.

We know that marriage is an exciting and busy time and our highly experienced team will help make your special day a success.

Christian marriage is both a religious and family celebration and everyone has the right to be married in the parish where they live or regularly attend worship.

Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God.
