Weddings

Thank you for checking St Peter’s website about your marriage. We know you must be excited about the future and we pray for your happiness!

St Peter’s is a Christian church, not simply a wedding venue. Every wedding here includes:

  • A Pre-wedding preparation course so you are better prepared for marriage.
  • Prayers for you, asking God to bless your marriage.
  • Reading from the Bible and a relevant talk about God and your marriage.

Can another minister marry you here?

Some people have a friend or know a minister and would like that person to lead the service, instead of a minister from St Peter’s. If that minister is an Anglican minister, who is licensed to marry people, then it is possible. If the person is not an Anglican, then they cannot lead the service in St Peter’s, but they may be able to assist.

Can the hall be used to host a reception?

It is definitely possible to use our hall to host your reception. We even have a commercial kitchen for your caterers.
However due to Sunday School and Church events there are some time restrictions around when the reception needs to be finished by and the hall returned to normal.

We want Marriages to last

Every couple being married by a St Peter’s minister is to attend the marriage preparation course. We want to help you have a lasting, happy, Christian marriage.

When your booking is confirmed we will advise you of the three evenings, run by Rev Robert Denham. Many couples comment on how enjoyable and helpful these evenings are.

Then about six (6) months before your wedding, we will advise you of the date for an evening that will focus on your wedding service and things like music, bows, confetti rules etc.

Have you been married before?

The Anglican church has some requirements concerning getting re-married.

If you are wanting to be married here by a St Peter’s minister and either or both of you have been married before, then please email Robert Denham or phone (02 9482 7250).

Costs

The cost for your wedding here depends on what you would like to include. There is a fee of $400 for cleaning the church, the organist, the basic set of flowers, wedding preparation and documents. The minister does not charge for weddings. Of course any further donation to St Peter’s would be gratefully received by the parish.

If you are bringing your own Anglican minister with you, the cost to use St Peter’s is only $150. Ask that minister if there are any other costs.

A deposit of $50 is payable when you hand in your application form. The remainder is due one (1) month before your wedding. Talk with the minister about the cost of using the hall for a reception.

Refund policy: Should you have the unfortunate experience of having to cancel your wedding, there is a $50 non-refundable portion of your deposit. There is also a sliding scale of refunds, depending on how many wedding course evenings you have attended.

You can pay by cash, cheque or postal order.
