Booking a Wedding

If you are reading this page and are thinking about coming to to St Peter's Church for your wedding we look forward to welcoming you, helping you to plan in plenty of time and making your special day as happy and relaxed as possible. 

St Peter's is a small but beautiful ancient church. Ideal for a wedding with fewer guests but can accommodate up to 150 guests with ease, more if you don't mind you guests being a bit squashed.

The church has a peal of 6 bells which can be rung by our experience tower team. 

The Fee for your wedding for 2019 which includes the organist is £620.00 (the bells are not included in this fee). You are welcome to have recorded music for the entrance of the Bride and the departure of the Bride and Groom. Please speak to the Vicar if you would like more information about fees.
