Working with couples and families to celebrate marriage is one of the great joys of a Christian community. Marriage is, for many people, the most significant relationship of human life, and when we celebrate marriage we express some of life's deepest and most powerful meanings.

A marriage service uses words and symbols to represent those powerful meanings. It seeks to express the love, trust and hope of a man and a woman as they make a commitment to a shared future. It is also a legal commitment, a formal announcement of marriage to family and community, and, when a minister of the Church is involved, a service of worship.

With all those things happening, it's no surprise that preparing for a wedding can also be just a little stressful! With so many expectations and hopes to express, with different “family cultures” and personalities involved, and with significant costs to cover, weddings need careful planning, and we can't let the point of the wedding – the celebration of a loving, trusting and hopeful relationship – be lost in all the confusion.

Thank you for considering Five Dock-Drummoyne Uniting Church as a place to be married. We would like to work with you to make your wedding a true expression of your love, and share in the joy of your family and community. We hope the notes on the following pages are helpful.
