Marriage Preparation: Marriage by Design courses

Take a break from wedding planning to prepare for married life together.

Marriage by Design is a popular course for anyone preparing to marry. In fact, 98% of all couples who attend say that they would recommend it to other couples!

Marriage by Design courses are led by licenced facilitators and are usually held over one day. They are presented in an informal and relaxed manner, at cosy venues with lunch and refreshments provided.

Featuring a great mix of clips, helpful guidance and down-to-earth stories, you have the opportunity to chat through a variety of relevant topics and explore what you want your marriage to look like. And – in case you were wondering – there are no role plays or group work so all discussions are kept private.

Marriage by Design courses take place across the UK and the Isle of Man throughout the year. You can search for your nearest course using the ‘Near you’ interactive map here. Alternatively, complete this form to register your interest in attending a local course:
