Both St Michael's and St Paul's are special venues for weddings.
Weddings at St Michael's
St Michael's is a popular venue for weddings. Its architecture and intimate atmosphere create a fitting setting for the celebration of a marriage that acknowledges that love is a gift of God.
The Church is available to all who want to acknowledge that, and who wish to declare their desire to share with each other the love God has given them.
As a church we are excited when we are approached by couples who desire to get married. Our church is available for Christian weddings. (the wedding must be taken by a Christian Minister – you can have your own Pastor/Minister if they are recognised by their own Church as a Minister). If you don’t have one then we can help you out or find someone else that can. We like there to be some form of pre marriage preparation.
The capacity of the Church is 100 persons. The Church was consecrated on the 13 November 1867, replacing the original built in 1843. The original Church was the first consecrated Anglican Church in Nelson and the first too, in the South Island . It has been used regularly for worship since then.
Making a Booking
There are three steps to book St Michael's for a wedding.
Planning Your Service
A marriage service is a very personal moment, and it is important that you are fully involved in shaping the service you will have on the day.
The minister will be able to provide you with a variety of resources from which you can choose and write your own material for the service.
A few house keeping Things
The Church is used for Sunday Services so cleaning and flowers are done regularly. You can organise for extra flowers for your wedding. We ask that confetti is not used as it makes a mess of the grounds. The Organ is an Historic French Organ and under no circumstances should it be moved. After the wedding please leave the Church clean and “As Found” ready for the next service.
Most couples find it helpful to have a practice before the big day, please ring or email our office so we can assure the church is available at your desired practice time.
