Testimonies from Engaged Encounter Marriage Preparation Weekends

Engaged Encounter Marriage Preparation Weekend Bristol

We wanted to add to the testimonies particularly for anyone feeling worried about going, or nervous – Don’t be! Honestly, you will feel very welcomed and made to feel very comfortable. We met some lovely people over the weekend and also realised a lot about ourselves. Not that we’re doing anything wrong at all, that in fact we have a great deal more in common than previously thought. It really made us see that being engaged and heading towards our wedding is definitely the right direction for us to be heading. The weekend encouraged us to talk about topics that we may not have even have thought of before, but were pleasantly surprised when we answered situations or questions with similar if not the same answers. This really did show us that we are right for one another, and are making the correct choices.  We would definitely recommend a weekend experience to everyone!!!

Engaged Encounter Marriage Preparation Weekend Hampshire

“Very peaceful, lovely surroundings.”

“Nicely balanced. My partner is a non-Catholic and was worried it would be too God focused. Instead we both found it had an appropriate amount, as it is for Catholic wedding prep’, but not shoving God and the Church down throats…thank you. It was done in such a way as to create interest rather than resentment”

“Pleasantly surprised by the relaxed atmosphere and how much we have learned about each other”

“We’ve come away totally fulfilled and will be recommending it. Everyone should come on one! Thank you, the team were lovely and we really appreciated the balance of religion/non-religious especially as a Catholic/non-Catholic couple”

“Having a Priest attend was a bonus – more so because he was really down to earth. In all, a totally refreshing experience”
