Weddings

Your wedding at St Annes…

The historic Church of St Anne is a beautiful setting for traditional weddings. Our experienced staff can help ensure that your wedding service is a significant and memorable occasion.

The Church of St Anne is an historic sandstone building circa 1826 with beautiful stained glass and other heritage features. The church can accommodate up to 200 people and its traditional pipe organ and sound system allows you to choose your own style of service.

Alternatively, some people prefer a wedding in a more modern contemporary setting. Our airconditioned auditorium which seats up to 350 is also available for wedding ceremonies.

Members of St Anne’s ministry staff will conduct your marriage service. If you would like your own minister please contact St Anne’s office to discuss this.

Please note: We are unable to conduct weddings on a Sunday.
