Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between two adults made in the presence of God and others.
At St. George's, we have both a magnificent church, which can seat up to 500 people, and a beautiful, small chapel which can easily accommodate 40 people.
In the Anglican Church it is required that at least one of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the ceremony be attested to by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage conform to the laws of the Province and the canons of this Church. Under normal circumstances, at least 60 days notice is required. If you have previously been married, please show a copy of your certificate of divorce to the Rector.
The canons (rules and regulations) of the Church require that each couple preparing for marriage in the Anglican Church must undergo premarital counseling. The recommended course can be found at www.marriageprep.com; please send a copy of your certificate to the Parish Administrator when you have completed the course. It can be completed at a weekend seminar or as an online course. The cost is about $150, which is an inexpensive investment into a strong marriage. You will also have three marriage preparation meetings with the rector prior to your wedding: the first when the wedding is arranged, the second about six weeks before the wedding, and the third in the week prior to the wedding.
The fees for a wedding in the Church begin at $1275. The fees for a wedding in the Chapel begin at $1075. This includes all church fees, including clergy, organist, custodian, and taxes. There is an additional fee to book the carillonneur, for additional clergy, or to book a soloist. Fees are also subject to increase based on other factors.
