Weddings

image3St Peter’s Church is a beautiful and atmospheric building, with seats for 175 people, providing the perfect setting for an intimate and romantic wedding ceremony. It is located on a main arterial road which stretches from Belfast city centre out to Antrim, and it is close to a motorway junction that facilitates travel in all directions. It is in a good location for travel from the International Airport, the City Airport, and Belfast Harbour. The Church is also close to Belfast Castle and right beside the Lansdowne Hotel, both of which host wedding receptions.

We are happy to receive enquiries about weddings in St Peter’s from both members and non-members of our congregation.  If either the bride or groom is a regular member of another church, then their own minister or priest is welcome to be involved in the ceremony.  We can accommodate weddings for couples from other Christin churches who simply wish to use St Peter’s as a venue. And we can also marry divorced couples, providing that permission is sought from the Bishop.

weddingThere is a fee of £340 for a wedding ceremony in St Peter’s. If you or your parents are members of our congregation, and make a financial contribution to parish funds, then the cost of the wedding can be reduced (or even waived entirely) according to your or their recorded Free Will Offering contribution to the parish over the course of the year prior to the date of the wedding. However, If you or your parents are not members of our congregation, and do not subscribe to parish funds, then the fee is £340. There are additional fees of £60 for the Rector, and £100 for the Organist (if you would like organ accompaniment during the ceremony).  Altogether, the maximum cost for a wedding in St Peter’s, including Officiant and Organist, is £500.

The Rector will be pleased to meet you to discuss the legal and practical issues of having your marriage ceremony in St Peter’s. You can either email the Rev’d Brian Lacey at brianlacey@hotmail.co.uk or telephone 02890 777053 and he will arrange a time to meet you in the church.
