Wedding preparation
If you decide to get married at St Swithun’s, we will ask you:
• to attend one of our Sunday services and consider becoming a member
• to meet with one of our ministry team to talk about your marriage and book the date of your wedding
• to meet the same minister several times to explore the Christian perspective on marriage and discuss issues that will help prepare not only for your ceremony but also your life together
• to consider attending a pre-marriage preparation course
• to hold a wedding rehearsal prior to the wedding day

You are welcome to contact the office to discuss your ideas and plans without any obligation to proceed to the next step. Phone 9488 7377 or email office@swiz.org.au
