"When I contacted St Andrew's with an initial enquiry about getting married there, Phil immediately put me at ease and made me feel that no question was too much to ask. Setting a date wasn't the most straight forward thing to organise but this was sorted out quickly and efficiently and we received a letter in the post to confirm that it had been put in the diary. The rehearsal went smoothly and Phil ran through everything very thoroughly, which was a great help. Liaising with the church office about booking out the church hall was also a relatively smooth process, despite some people being on holiday. We were able to look around the hall in advance and make sure we knew what we were allowed to use, how to open up and lock up etc. Finally, we were very touched that the church warden allowed us to put up some bunting in the church the night before. This was a lovely gesture that meant a lot to us.
The service was more beautiful than we could have imagined. It was exactly what we had hoped for and more. The church looked fabulous and everything went very smoothly. We had organised our own musicians and speakers but Chris kindly did a powerpoint for us, which again we were very grateful to him for, and Phil was amazing, as usual.
Fundamentally, the whole experience of getting married at St Andrews was wonderful. The church welcomed us with open arms and we will always hold it very warmly in our hearts.
Thank you so much for such a pleasant experience and for having helped make our day so incredibly special.
