Erica & Jamies Wedding Story

wpdf700119_0fOur Wedding at St James Parish Church on 5 December 2009
By Jamie & Erica Gleeson

Since the first day Jamie and I walked into St James Church on a Sunday morning in February 2009, we knew we wanted to get married there. The service was fantastic; it was so easy to understand.

Everyone there made us feel so welcome; it felt like we had been going to service there for years, which was so special has we hadn’t been to service there before. We then met Reverend Phil after the service and he agreed to come and see us for a cup of tea at our home, to discuss our wedding plans.

We thought weddings were meant to be stressful, but Phil explained what would happen stage by stage and what we needed to do. He even e-mailed us a checklist – Yes, Vicar’s can use e-mail and search the net – ha ha!

We don’t see Phil as just our Vicar, we see him as our friend, someone to help guide us through our lives together, and it felt such an honour for us to have him marry us, on the most special day of our lives.

We are so glad St James is now part of our life.
