1 - WEDDING INFORMATION - Prepared for those wishing to be married in The Parish Church of St. Luke THE PARISH CHURCH OF ST. LUKE Anglican Church of Canada 1371 Elgin Street Burlington, Ontario (Mailing address and Parish Hall: 1382 Ontario St. - L7S 1G1)

2 THE CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE SERVICE Congratulations on your engagement to be married! We are pleased that you are considering getting married here at St. Luke s Church. Marriage in the Church is an act of worship in which two people promise, in the sight of God and in the presence of their friends and relatives, that they will love, comfort, honour and cherish one another, and live together faithfully for the rest of their lives. We believe that getting married means giving yourself to another - body and soul - to belong together for life. Much more than a contract, it is a covenant which celebrates a holy relationship. Because our own spirits are the deepest level of ourselves, in the marriage service, vows are made before God and witnessed by friends and family. We always ask God to bless the union. We invite couples who ask for the Church s service and blessing, to worship with us at St. Luke s and to consider making us your spiritual home. A celebration of the Holy Eucharist can be an important part of the Christian Marriage Service, as newlyweds begin their life together kneeling at the Lord s Table to receive the Bread and Wine of Holy Communion. The clergy will be happy to discuss this with you. DATE AND TIME The Canon Law of the Anglican Church of Canada requires that those who intend to marry give notice to the minister at least sixty (60) days before the day proposed for the wedding. It is helpful if more notice than this is given so that the church building might be reserved and that there be time for unhurried interviews, before the wedding. If for some reason, you are too late to meet the 60 day deadline call us anyway right away and we ll see what we can do! Weddings may be booked on Saturdays at the following times: 1:30p.m., 3:00p.m. & 4:30p.m. Other days might be possible and negotiated with the clergy. 2

3 Some important things that you need to do: Contact the Clergy The first step is to arrange to meet our clergy to open a file and book your date and time. We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible with your wedding plans and your preparation for marriage, so it is a good idea to meet as soon as possible after you either decide to get married here, or even if you are just exploring the possibility. Call the office at The clergy can often arrange to meet you on an evening or a weekend if that works best for your schedule. The clergy will meet with you again, usually after the Marriage Prep Course at which time you will probably have chosen readings and other details of the service. Marriage License Purchase a marriage license from any city or town hall in Ontario. You can get these up to 3 months before your wedding. Our administrative assistants at St. Luke s need this license, along with the large envelope that comes with it, at least two weeks before the wedding. (Our office hours are Monday and Friday - 9 a.m. to 12 noon. and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. We are closed most statutory holidays) Marriage Preparation Weekend All couples are required to do marriage preparation before their wedding. We offer a Marriage Prep Course twice per year (in the Fall and Spring), each one including a Friday evening and a Saturday morning and afternoon. The cost for this course is $45 per couple and it includes lunch on Saturday. At this course you will meet our Director of Music, who is in charge of the music for your wedding. You will also meet some of our Altar Guild members who will show you how the Church is decorated for your wedding, and will be able to answer questions that you have. It is an enjoyable, no pressure weekend where you will get to meet other couples who are also getting married here. If for some reason you cannot make either of these weekends, we can arrange to do an online questionnaire with a further discussion and interview with the rector, though the preferable option is to attend the marriage prep weekend. 3

4 Music for your Wedding As mentioned above, our Director of Music is in charge of the music at your wedding. She is very good at helping you choose your wedding music. Most couples make this choice at the Marriage Prep Weekend when they listen to her play most of the popular options. Some people like to have a soloist sing at their wedding. If you would like this, you need to hire your soloist directly. Also, it will entail an extra practice, before the week of the wedding, for our Director of Music, so there is an extra $25 charge. If you have some special requests for music at your wedding, please discuss this with our Director of Music who is an excellent musician and plays both our Casavant Organ or our grand piano as you would like. Some people like to hire other musicians to also play at some points in their wedding. You are welcome to arrange this, but our Director of Music, who is contracted for all our music here, will still be paid and will accompany or assist the other musicians for your wedding. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of music, Jennifer Goodine at The Decoration of the Church The Altar Guild is responsible for all the decorations of the Church. They will arrange all flowers, white kneeling cushions and our own white pew decorations that you will see at the Marriage Prep weekend. About Flowers: For Saturday Weddings: The church flowers arranged for the Sunday Services will be at the altar. If you would like to send additional arrangements, please contact the Altar Guild flower convenor. And please arrange one of your guests to remove your own arrangements when your wedding is concluded. For Weddings on other days of week: Please contact the flower convenor. Altar Guild Flower Convenor - contact church office at Fees: In order to book and hold your wedding date and time there is a nonrefundable deposit of $150 that can be paid either by cheque or by cash. The rest of the fees are due two weeks before the wedding at the time that we receive your wedding license. 4

5 In order to save our treasurer from having to cut several cheques for every wedding which we do, we request that these fees be paid in cash and placed in separate envelopes and labeled as listed below: Fee for the Organist $ Or (Fee for the Organist when accompanied by a soloist $ ) Fee for Verger $ Fee for Altar Guild $ Balance of Church Fee $ Fee for Clergy $ So the grand total is $925 (or $950 if there is a soloist singer because this entails an extra practice for our organist) PLEASE NOTE: If you are thinking about using rooms in our Parish Hall, for your reception etc., there will be room usage fees, insurance etc. You will need to speak to our Room Coordinator regarding use of rooms & the costs involved We have a large and well-appointed Great Hall which will beautifully accommodate a diner/reception, with a very suitable kitchen for caterers attached. WEDDING INVITATIONS & PROGRAMS If you are doing wedding invitations Please note the street address of the church is 1371 Elgin Street and this address should be used on all wedding invitations & programs. (The mailing address & offices of the church is 1382 Ontario Street, Burlington, Ont. L7S 1G1). You may choose to also make wedding programs for the day. These are not necessary, but some couples like to provide them. The clergy can show you some examples of what other couples have produced to give you some ideas. Wedding Rehearsals Most couples like to have a wedding rehearsal close to the time of their wedding. This is usually booked at the same time as we book your wedding. Because we often have more than one wedding (and more than one rehearsal) on any given day, we request that the wedding party arrive on time for both the rehearsal and the wedding itself! 5

6 PARKING The parking lot in front of the church on Elgin Street is reserved for the Bridal Party. Therefore, guests must park either on Elgin Street, in front of the church OR in the City and Church parking lot, the entrance to which is on the south side of Elgin Street directly across from the church. We can show you where this is when you meet the clergy and it is a good idea to let your guests know about this parking lot in your invitation. Some General Rules: Please don t throw stuff! Confetti, rice, flower petals (either real or silk) tomatoes, eggs or anything else! We need to keep the place in good condition for other services of the Church. Let s just fill the air with the joy that you and your guests will feel as they celebrate this most holy day with you! The General Rules about photography are on the next page, which you can tear off and give to your photographer if you like. 6

7 PHOTOGRAPHS & VIDEO-TAPING Your Marriage Ceremony will be one of the most holy moments of your lives. That sense of sacredness can dissipate pretty quickly once the paparazzi get going, so we ve got some good rules about photography to safeguard the sacredness: During the service itself, the attention of all in the Church should be on the holy ceremony which is taking place. Therefore, IT IS NOT PERMISSIBLE FOR FLASH PICTURES TO BE TAKEN DURING THE ACTUAL SERVICE. PHOTOGRAPHS: An Official Photographer may take pictures: 1) With flash in the church as the bride enters the church. 2) Without flash from the entrance during the service (a quiet time exposure). 3) With flash during the signing of the register. 4) With flash in the church as the bride & groom leave by the center aisle, following the ceremony. This page of the booklet may be torn out and given to your photographer. The clergy will be glad to talk with him/her in the vestry before the service, so that he/she is familiar with our church s customs. VIDEO-TAPING: You may have your entire wedding video-taped, but we ask that the videographer set up before the service begins and stays in that location for the entire service until the wedding party exits at the end of the service. So no roving reporters, please! We find that if they stay in one location they just seem to meld into the woodwork and everyone forgets that they are there, which is as it should be. Of course, no lights on the video camera are allowed. The videographer should attend the rehearsal to consult with the clergy. 7
