You don’t need to be Anglican to be married at St Peter’s Church.
Because St Peter’s is a very popular church for weddings it’s essential that you make a firm booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment over date and time. Please phone or email the office for an initial appointment.
When it comes to the initial interview, you will need to bring along your birth certificates or passports (birth certificates if born in Australia) and the $500 deposit (see below).
A “Notice of Intended Marriage” form – an Australian Government requirement and other oaths and declarations (also required by the Government) will be discussed at this meeting. For couples living overseas a copy of the ‘Notice’ may be downloaded (From the Attorney General’s Department.)
It is also good for you to come along to a service in the church on a Sunday morning to experience the church setting with a congregation. These services commence at 8.00am each Sunday.
We at St Peter’s take your marriage vows seriously and want to do everything we can to help you start your married life on a firm foundation. To help achieve this we do require that each couple attend a preparation course. These are held throughout the year in an informal atmosphere together with other engaged couples. All the details will be discussed at the initial meeting with the rector. Click here to find out more about the course.
We know there are a lot of costs associated with weddings. At St Peter’s, we try give value for money. The cost for a wedding is $2500, which includes:
- Church use
- Marriage Preparation Course (incl. books)
- Flower Arrangement
- Pew ribbons
As mentioned above, when you make your booking for the church, a non-refundable deposit of $500 is required. This is deducted from the full wedding costs. Payment of the balance by cash, cheque or direct deposit is required at least 2 weeks prior to the wedding.
