If a couple have children – taking part in the service

Projects Team
  • If the couple already have children, involve them in one of the preparation sessions and discuss any ideas they might have of being involved in the service
  • If the couple have young bridesmaids, pageboys or ring-bearers, place a marker on the floor so they know where to stand when they are the front of the church
  • If a young child is acting as ring-bearer, it’s best to tie the rings to the cushion
  • Older children of the couple can also walk Mum down the aisle, or be involved in reading or writing prayers for the service
  • By inviting the couple’s children to stand with their parents during the prayers or blessing, you will be creating a wonderful moment to remember, and emphasising that this wedding marks a new beginning for the whole family
