Weddings at Churchie



The Canon Jones Memorial Chapel is available to members of the Churchie community including Old Boys and staff for weddings, baptisms and other pastoral services. This ministry is part of the School's ongoing commitment to families and those who have shared in the life of Churchie.
 

Booking the Date

Complete the application form well in advance to reserve your preferred date. The celebrant will be in touch to discuss the date and time. When payment is made, the date is confirmed.
 
It is unusual for more than one wedding to be held on the same day; that is part of our commitment to make your service special.
 
By Australian law, you must give formal notice of your wedding at least one month in advance. To do this, please complete Form 13: Notice of Intended Marriage. 
 
Churchie charges an inclusive fee of $1500 for your wedding, which covers the cost of flowers, music, cleaning and the service of the celebrant. Should you wish to organise your own musical preference and personally attend to your flowers, there is a reduction in the above fee, which can be discussed with you.
 

Music

Please contact [email protected] to arrange an organist for the service. The chapel organ is a beautiful instrument, amongst the finest in Australian schools. Please note that we do not permit recorded music.  However, you may choose to arrange other musical options/instruments instead of the organ.
 

Flowers

Please contact [email protected] regarding flowers for the chapel.  We will liaise with you regarding your colour preference.  
 

Photography

It is important to retain the Christian character of the service and to honour the serious nature of the occasion. Please ensure your photographer is respectful with regards to appropriate attire and movement throughout the venue.
 

Rehearsal

Rehearsals are held one evening in the week before the service. It is possible at this time to complete the documents required by the Registrar General and to rehearse part of the service.
