The Globe at Durlston, where we will have our wedding breakfast

Next year I’m getting married. I’m so excited. I am looking forward to committing the rest of my life to my partner and celebrating our love with friends and family. Here are five things I am looking forward to about our wedding that I think every couple planning a wedding could look forward to.

1. Ceremony

I love wedding ceremonies. There’s the entrance of the bride/groom, the vows, the singing (in church), and the talk about how to love and live well together.

I often get emotional as the bride walks down the aisle. Our wedding will have two grooms, but I’m sure there will be lots of tears when the aisle walk happens. We haven’t worked out the exact order of how it will work yet, but I know it is going to be special.

Getting married in church is very important to me. My faith shapes me and is the biggest influencer (I hope) in my decision-making. Getting married and acknowledging the presence of God in the vows will be an incredible moment.

Then there’s the singing. Or, more accurately, sung worship. I love to sing praise to God. Usually loudly, and off-key, but with bundles of enthusiasm. God’s love for us is so vast, and God is so awesome I cannot help but worship. Our wedding will be full of worship for our creator, sustainer, and redeemer.

The talk will be a precious moment of calm when we can learn from the wisdom of one of our good friends about the joys and struggles of married life.

The ceremony is the highlight of the day, the foundation of all that follows.

2. Venue

We plan to get married in a church building, and then celebrate at a beautiful venue in Dorset, in the south of England. With views along the coast, I really hope it is a clear, dry day. Of course, fog could descend and spoil the view! If the weather holds, it will be absolutely stunning. Blue Bay Events have a beautiful image of the view on instagram here.

3. Family and friends

Life alone, even as a couple, would be dull.
