Congratulations! Getting married is one of the most exciting things that happen in our lifetimes!
Speaking from the experience of one who has now been married for 31 years, being married is one of the greatest gifts that our God gives to us.
We, at St. Augustine’s, want to help make your wedding day as memorable as we can – a true celebration of the love the two of you share. Please contact me to book a wedding (753-1931 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will be delighted to help in the organization of your wedding day, helping to build a foundation for your marriage.
St. Augustine's offers a Marriage Preparation course intended to deepen the love you share and lead you to a stronger relationship with each other that will evolve into a truly blessed marriage. Download the agenda and registration form below.
Getting married is one of the most beautiful experiences that happen in our lives – it can also be a stressful time – after all we only plan to do it once in our lifetimes and we want to make the celebration just perfect. There are so many questions that we want answered and so many decisions to make. What follow are some basic guidelines to help in your planning for your Wedding Day.
For any questions regarding the order of the service, always consult the Minister of the Church, Archdeacon David Pilling. He, or one of the other clergy on staff, would be pleased to assist you.
Our contact information is: Church: 753-1931 Email: email@example.com
The Marriage License is the responsibility of the couple getting married and can be applied for at 5 Mews Place, in St. John’s. It may not be picked up until 30 days before the marriage and should be applied for at least 8 days before the marriage. It generally takes four days to process this application. The Church also requires having the license 4 days before the Wedding ceremony.
Our Wedding Fees for your Wedding Ceremony is $450.00 – which covers all costs.
Regarding your wedding music, please check with Rev’d Bob Earle, our Music Director or with Archdeacon Pilling regarding your choice of music and the instrument(s) you are wish to use. We have a CD and Cassette Player connected to our sound system, if you want to make use of it.
If you want to have the Minister attend your wedding reception, please invite them in writing. In your invitation, it would be proper to invite the Minister’s wife as well. If your intention is to have them say the grace at your reception, please indicate this to them prior to the wedding day.
We ask that Decorations in the Church not be placed in the church with any adhesive (no tape!) or nails or staples or thumbtacks.
For flowers, we suggest talking to the minister regarding placement – and if you are planning to leave them in the church, please indicate this to the Church Office (753-1931).
