“My husband and I could not have chosen a more welcoming and lovely setting to begin our marriage. The beautiful and historic Meting House, surrounded by gardens, provides a very special setting for family and friends to gather. Our Methodist, Jewish, Catholic, Muslim, and non-believing participants celebrated our marriage with joy and love. As we gathered in the Assembly Room for refreshments after the marriage, we were surrounded by those who shared our happiness at finding each other and the commitment they had all helped us make.”
