St Peter's Church comfortably seats 120 people. If you would like to arrange a time to see our building or talk with our Senior Minister please call our office between 9-5pm on 6224 0208. Below are a few details that may help in your preparation for the big day.
The cost of the wedding will be $450 all inclusive (inc. GST if applicable). This includes a celebrant, organist (if required), garden flowers (if required), church hire, and marriage preparation classes.
We would like to support you in this step into marriage. When two people make a commitment to join together in marriage there is much to be excited about, but also many issues that will need to be addressed. Therefore I would like to meet with you on four occasions in order to guide you through some of the relationship implications. We will be using a questionnaire called “Prepare”, which will highlight some strengths and potential growth areas in your relationship. In case you fear otherwise, “Prepare” is not a program that targets Christians or attempts to ‘convert’ you. It is simply a tool that will help you understand yourself, your partner, and the differences between you. If you live interstate or overseas, please contact me and we can discuss the implications as regards your preparation.
Other things pertaining to the service you might need to consider is the order of service booklet, if you would like an item during the signing, if you would like include friends in other elements of the service (readings, prayers) and whether or not you would like the celebrant to wear robes and a clerical collar or a suit and tie. The service used will largely follow the traditional vows. If you wish to say something more personal, we can discuss this at our first meeting.
As well as the four classes of marriage preparation, we will need to have a prior 1 hour long meeting to discuss the service outline, and fill out the legal paperwork required. If you could please bring documents such as birth certificates, passports, and divorce papers (where relevant). A dress rehearsal before hand is optional.
If you have any more questions regarding weddings at Wellspring Anglican, please do not hesitate to contact the Senior Minister, David Rietveld during office hours.
