COMMENTS FROM RECENT PARTICIPANTS ON THE DAY:

‘My partner and I attended the marriage preparation course on Saturday 12th February.  We were slightly nervous about attending the course, as we were not sure what to expect.  When we arrived we were made to feel very comfortable and everyone was very welcoming.  We found the course very informative, well structured and covered all aspects relating to marriage.  It was nice to meet other couples preparing for marriage and to listen to their different views and opinions.
We would like to thank you all for an enjoyable day.
We came away feeling a lot more confident and would highly recommend this course to other couples preparing for marriage. Many thanks.’  Emma and Gary
