Your Wedding

What better start could you have to your new life together, than to make your vows before God, in this picture-perfect little church ?

For almost a century loving couples have been making their promises before the beautiful hand carved wooden altar, as the sun streams through the stained glass windows blessing their union in a very special way.



The church was designed by Sir Herbert Baker, built by a team of Italian stonemasons under the leadership of a Mr. Gemignani, and funded by the local community. The building was completed in 1913, and the church has been used for local worship every Sunday since that date.

St Peter's Church (Photo: Willie Jacobs)Up to seventy friends and family can be seated comfortably on the polished wooden pews, with extra seating available for around ten people in the form of additional chairs placed at the back of the church.

Entry to St. Peterís is through the old lychgate, along a stone path which winds through the stunning, landscaped gardens, under the ancient, massive jacaranda trees, to the church steps.  The gardens, and arched entrance to the church are a photographers dream!

The church is open to the public, virtually
every day of the week from 7am to 5 pm.

For absolute convenience the wedding car is able to park right next to the lychgate. Parking for guests close by.

The gardens are planted in such a way that whichever time of year you choose for your wedding, you can be assured of an abundance of natural beauty and colour as a setting for your special event.

With our local knowledge, we are able to assist with recommendations for hairdressers, florists, photographers, and also for a variety of accommodation options for the bride and groom and/or the guests.  We also have available the services of two local organists, should you require traditional music.  There are power points in the church should you prefer recorded or other electronic music.

We welcome persons of all denominations to hold their marriage services in our lovely church, and trust that doing so will provide you, your family and your guests with a wonderful blessing, and very happy memories!
