Your Wedding at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church

Planning Your Wedding

The Two Shall Become One

We Rejoice that marriage is given by God, blessed by our Lord Jesus Christ and sustained by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, let marriage be held in honor by all.

“Marriage is a gift God has given to all humankind for the well-being of the entire human family. Marriage is a civil contract between a woman and a man. For Christians marriage is a covenant through which a man and a woman are called to live out together before God their lives of discipleship. In a service of Christian marriage a lifelong commitment is made by a woman and a man to each other publicly witnessed and acknowledged by the community of faith.” (W-4.9001

Directory for Worship,

Presbyterian Church, USA)  Thus, a Christian service of marriage is a worship service where a bride and a groom come together with friends and loved ones to give thanks, to praise God, and to ask God’s blessings upon their life as husband and wife.


Pre-marital Counseling

Pre-marital counseling provides an opportunity for the wedding couple to explore and discuss the significance and meaning of their life-long commitment. Areas such as the marriage service, communication and conflict in matters may be addressed. The Pastor will schedule such counseling with the couple.


The couple should expect to meet with the pastor for at least three sessions, plus an initial consultation. The pastor will usually attend the wedding rehearsal, which will be under the supervision of the wedding coordinator.
