Your Wedding at Bethel

A wedding is the result of two people loving each other so much that they want to spend the rest of their lives together.

Your wedding at Bethel means that you want God to bless you as you begin that new life together as husband and wife.

Your wedding ceremony gives you an opportunity to make vows to each other with God and your guests as witnesses.  The Bible readings show that God is the giver of love, and that as you love each other, you reflect some of the qualities of God.

As you begin married life, we pray with you that you will keep God at the centre of the marriage so that it remains strong enough to withstand the storms life will bring along, and so filled with God’s joy that you live happily and faithfully together all your lives.
