The Book of Common Prayer describes Holy Matrimony as a Christian marriage in which a committed couple enter into a lifelong union, make their vows before God and the church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows.
The wedding guild was established to assist the couple to ensure their wedding day is a smooth event. We share the guidelines of a wedding at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church, answer questions, and give assistance. The wedding guild helps with the rehearsal on the day or evening before the wedding and assist on the day/evening of the wedding.
