OUR PROCESS FOR WEDDINGS

GETTING STARTED

We have an ONLINE REQUEST FORM that starts our process. Once the form is received, we ensure that our facility and staff are available for the date(s) requested. If available, an initial meeting will be scheduled between the Bride/Groom and officiating pastor. It will be at this meeting that the pastor will approve the wedding request. Once approved, your wedding will be confirmed on our calendar and one of our wedding coordinators will be in contact and will provide you with a packet of information.

We are delighted you are considering having your wedding ceremony at Bidwell Presbyterian Church. The historic charm of the Bidwell sanctuary has served as the backdrop for many weddings over the years. Our beautiful location offers several elegant options for your wedding and reception. We are blessed to have professional and friendly staff who strive to make weddings unique and memorable. If you’re considering Bidwell Pres as a wedding venue, please check out the additional information we have provided to the right.

WHAT IS MARRIAGE?

We believe that marriage is a covenant between a woman and a man who, before God, make a lifelong commitment to each other and is a gift given by God, blessed by Jesus Christ, and sustained by the Holy Spirit and that a wedding ceremony marks the beginning of a union between the husband and wife and Christ, and celebrates God’s plan for marriage.


We consider it an honor and privilege to share in this most significant chapter of your lives as you approach your wedding day and begin the first year of the wonderful adventure of marriage. Our hope is to provide you with strong support as you commit yourself to a lifetime together in Christian marriage. Therefore, it is our polity that weddings are conducted under the direction of one of our pastors. If you have a preference for a particular pastor, your request will be honored, if possible. We have been able to honor requests for guest pastors to participate and invite you to discuss this with the officiating pastor at your first meeting. During the months leading up to your ceremony, several sessions will occur for you and the pastor to discuss Christian marriage (the joys and responsibilities) and finalize details regarding your wedding ceremony.
