St Andrew's has a long-standing reputation as being the ideal church for wedding ceremonies. With its picturesque surroundings and monumental buildings, couples have, for generations, chosen St Andrew's as a place to mark one of their most significant moments.
What makes St Andrew's ideal is its ability to cater for weddings of all sizes. Wedding ceremonies may be held in the Pioneer Chapel (seating approximately 90 people), the main church (seating 400 people), or the Lady Chapel (seating 50 people) for smaller weddings.
Weddings may be held on any day of the week (subject to the availability of the clergy), with Saturday traditionally being the most popular day.
St Andrew's Brighton may only be used for services authorised by the Anglican Church of Australia and cannot be 'hired out' to other denominations or civil celebrants.
The clergy of the parish conduct wedding ceremonies. However, other ordained Christian clergy may participate with St Andrew's Brighton clergy in conducting a wedding after approval has been sought from the Vicar of St Andrew's Brighton (and the Bishop if required).
As St Andrew's Brighton is a popular church for weddings, it is advisable to make a booking twelve to eighteen months in advance of the proposed wedding date.
