Wedding Angels

Claire McCollum visits a unique charity called the Wedding Angels who help young couples who can’t afford to get married to achieve their dream wedding. She meets Rachael Penrose who runs the charitable wedding boutique in Salford and explores why there is a need for such a charity and how faith inspires the work that they do. Claire also meets a couple whose wedding 2 years ago was organised by the Wedding Angels and had their dream wedding organised at a hugely reduced rate.


Same Sex Marriage

Since the beginning of this year the law has allowed same sex couples to marry in Scotland. Some members of the clergy support the change and are looking forward to the day when they can officiate at gay Christian weddings in church.
