Wedding Information

A Christian wedding celebrated in God’s presence is a memorable occasion shared with loving family and friends.

In the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle; brides will not be asked to “submit” or “obey”.

Do I need to be an Anglican? No but at least one person must be a baptised person. In our Church you would be married according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Anglican Church.

What do I need? You will need both full birth certificates for both bride and groom.  If married you’ve been married before, then a divorce or death certificate.  And at least one of you will need to have baptism certificate or an extract from a Baptismal register.

When you meet the Priest? Together with the priest you will fill in the Notice of Intended Marriage form, (this must be completed at least 30 days prior to your wedding) discuss the order of service and your family and friends participation as well as practical arrangements such as the rehearsal, photographers and videos etc.

What is the cost? You pay a  fee of $400.00 for the cost of the Priest and the Church, or if you choose to be married outside of the church building at a location of your choice the cost is still $400 to cover the cost of the Priest, time and travel.
