The joining of two lives in marriage is a momentous step. There is no greater commitment that two people can make. A man and a woman commit themselves to each other without reservation for the rest of their lives.
We sense that we stand on holy ground. It is this, rather than the reception, that is the heart of a wedding. As a hotel offers a natural venue for a meal with family and friends, so a church offers a natural venue for the act of marriage.
A couple gather in the presence of God to make their promises to each other. Their family and friends join them to witness the event and to ask God’s blessing for them.
If you live in North Berwick, or are having your reception in the town, St Andrew Blackadder Church might be the ideal setting for your marriage. You can pop into the building anytime – it’s open most days between 9 am and 2 pm (till 4 pm in the summer) to get a feel for its ambience – or get in touch with Neil, our Minister, through the Church Office.
