Making the Most of Weddings: A Practical Guide for Churches

Is your church making the most of weddings? This book is for anyone in parishes that would like to develop their ministry to wedding couples. Drawing on many years' experience as a parish priest as well as 'good ideas' used by parishes throughout the UK, Andrew Body offers advice and practical wisdom on how churches can: promote their church as an attractive wedding venue; make positive initial contacts with wedding couples; help couples organize the service (including understanding the legal requirements); offer good marriage preparation and support the couple in the build-up to the big day; take the service well; ensure the wedding couples are not forgotten after the day itself.
