Weddings

It’s easy to say ‘Yes’ to couples wishing to marry at St. Peter’s:
You can marry at St. Peter’s if one of you can say yes to just one of the following requirements:

You live in Stapenhill parish
You are on the electoral roll*
You have previously lived in the parish for at least 6 months
You have regularly attended our weekly church services for 6 months
You were baptised in the parish*
You were prepared for confirmation in the parish*
One of your parents, at any time after you were born:
Has lived in the parish for at least 6 months
Has regularly attended our weekly church services for 6 months
One of your parents or grandparents:
Were married in the parish
* you will need to show your baptism certificate

If you can’t say ‘Yes’ to any of the above, don’t worry, you can still marry in this church if you are granted a Special Licence.

Please note that we do NOT marry divorcees at St. Peter’s. You should both be single or widowed.

Our purpose at St. Peter’s is to love the Lord Jesus Christ through living by the Bible, encouraging each other and sharing the Good News of the gospel. We meet together weekly as a church family for teaching, friendship and encouragement and would encourage you to join us at any of our services. When couples marry at St. Peter’s we ask that they come to church every Sunday as a courtesy to the vicar, Michael Andreyev, and our church family so we can get to know each other. In this way you will learn about Christianity, which is the basis of the marriage service you want.

Once you have made the decision to marry at St. Peter’s please come in to see us at the Parish Office on a Monday to Thursday between 10am and 12 noon or by appointment on a Wednesday evening between 7pm and 8pm. The Parish Office is situated at the Glebe School on Stanton Road, near the Co-op and next to the Tanning Cabin. You will be welcomed by Caroline Duffield, our Parish Administrator, and Tracey Salmon, our Wedding Verger.

The cost of a wedding at St. Peter’s in 2016 is £617.00 and includes diocesan fees, organist, verger, use of the church, lighting, heating and the legal banns and certificates. A deposit of £50 is required on booking and this is deducted from the total fee. If you are having a summer wedding and don’t need the heating you can deduct £50 bringing the cost of your wedding down to £567.
