Author(s): Jan Brind, Tessa Wilkinson
Arising out of many years' practical experience in local parishes and on a diocesan liturgical committee, this second volume in a series of three by this creative team of writers will help local churches everywhere make the most of the opportunities presented by couples coming for marriage or a wedding blessing. The wedding industry today is driven by consumer choice. Churches are uniquely placed to offer: real pastoral support at what is often a stressful (and expensive!) time, time out to consider what marriage means and imaginative liturgies that can make a wedding truly memorable. This book is full of ideas that will help make the experience of getting married in church joyous, memorable and meaningful. From giving engaged couples 'Stress-busting gift packs', to creating personalised wedding ceremonies, ideas for church decorating and welcoming couples who have got married in another part of the country or abroad, this is a resource brimming with simple and effective ideas.
Jan Brind is a pastoral assistant for liturgy at St Andrew's Church, Cobham, and has served on the Guildford Diocese Worship Committee. She lives in Surrey. Tessa Wilkinson is an artist and counsellor who has encouraged many to discover their creative gifts. She lives in London.
