Your Church Wedding
If you are considering either St Peters or Christ Church for your wedding, you won’t be disappointed. Our churches offer so much more than simply a venue for your wedding. As well as having a ceremony tailored exactly to your needs, unique and special things become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond:
+ A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the main attraction for many couples, whatever their beliefs.
+ You can make amazing vows, or promises, in a church. You can only make vows this big in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.
+ Our clergy have a very particular role to play in your wedding. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the Vicar, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.
+ Both St Peters and Christ Church also offer outstanding beauty and history. Imagine all the couples who have married in one of our Churches, some of whom may well be your family. You can feel you’re becoming part of history itself, the bigger plan, by marrying in the same place as your relatives. We know these sorts of connections can make your day even more special.
+ You can be involved in making choices about your ceremony making choices about the hymns, readings and other elements to be included in your ceremony.
+ For some people, a church simply seems like the proper place to get married. Our churches can rightly be described as ‘peaceful’, ‘serene’, or having an atmosphere that makes marrying there a particularly special experience.
+ And after your wedding, you’ll realise that a church is more than simply a wedding venue.
