Weddings, Blessings, Thanksgivings and Renewal of Vows

in St Peter’s and the Unfinished Church

 

A wedding is one life’s most significant mile-stones and will be remembered for the rest of your life. It is the occasion of a public declaration of love and commitment, of celebration and festivity, but also of solemn contemplation and reflection on commitment, faithfulness and loyalty.

Weddings in St Peter’s and the Unfinished Church

The most popular wedding months are April, May and June when the weather is generally very pleasant in Bermuda.   It can be very hot and humid in August and September; the possibility of rain is greater and there is no air-conditioning in St Peter’s.   Traditionally, weddings are not performed during Lent - the 6 weeks before Easter, or Advent - the 4 weeks before Christmas.

 

If you are interested in being married in St Peter’s, Their Majesties Chappell, or in the unique setting of the Unfinished Church, please call the office on (441) 297 2459 or Email office@stpeters.bm.

 

Blessing of a Marriage

If you have been legally married in a civil, usually private, ceremony, you may wish to have your marriage blessed in church wedding.  This is becoming increasingly common so that a couple can have a service and celebration with their circle of family and friends.
