What form will the service take?
The wedding ceremony will be an Anglican form of service. The church itself is not ‘for hire’. An Anglican priest who is licensed within the Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn and those from other dioceses who have the Bishop’s permission must conduct the ceremony. We welcome clergy of other denominations assisting in the ceremony.
The Wedding Service
The priest will meet with you both a few times before your wedding to help you to arrange the service. The master for service booklets will be produced at the church. We have lists of suitable prayers, readings and music, or you are able to choose your own if you prefer.
The priest is happy to discuss photography and videoing of your ceremony. In general photographs are usually taken at the following times. :
• As the bride comes into the Church;
• After the signing of the Register when the bride and groom will pose for photographs;
• At the handing over of the Marriage Certificate;
• As the couple leave the Church;
Photos may be taken at other times as long as the photographer is out of sight. A good spot is the organ gallery at the back of the church.
