From Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th September 2011, St Thomas's Church, Osbaldwick held a weekend celebrating marriage and the Church’s particular contribution to it. The aim was to demonstrate what the Church has to offer people considering marriage and also to encourage those who are married for however long.
Throughout the event, there were displays of wedding memorabilia past and present, kindly lent by members of the church and local community. In total 33 dresses lined the church representing the last 80 years of weddings. The oldest dress on display dated from 1933 and indeed, more than one quarter of the dresses dated from before 1960; the newest ones being from this year.
The marriage celebration weekend culminated in a service celebrating marriage at which many couples renewed their wedding vows.
