Churches are special places and there are some things about a church wedding that you just can’t get anywhere else. 


Our church will be so much more than simply a venue for your wedding. Unique and special things become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond. You will gain a spiritual dimension to your marriage as 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 also 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.

A priest can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the priest, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.


Our church building offers outstanding beauty and space. It is a listed building and can seat well over 100 people quite easily. We also have a lovely green space, St Peter’s Garden, adjacent to the church which you can use for your photographs.


Imagine all the couples who have married in your local church, 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.
