St Peter's is a beautiful historic building and a great place to get married.  And, in addition to the beautiful surroundings, 

there are many other good reasons for marrying in a church.   

Our wedding packages include:

  • the services of the Officiating priest

  • the Commonwealth Government legal paperwork and administration 

  • an organist on our historic pipe organ. The most popular items are Mendelsshohn’s Wedding March and Wagner’s Bridal March, but almost anything can be arranged.

For an addition fee, we can arrange

  • Flowers

  • Church Bells – St Peter’s is the only church in Ballarat with a peal of 8 bells. The bell ringers can come in and ring for approximately 10 minutes prior to your marriage and approx. 10 minutes after you are married.

If you would like to make enquiries about having your wedding at St Peter's please contact us. The priest will be happy to discuss the cost options and what preparation is required.


St Peter's is an Anglican congregation for all ages in the heart of Ballarat West.  We love our bluestone church which dates back to the 1860s and which speaks to us of God's peace and love. Pay us a visit. Perhaps it will speak to you too.
