A Christian marriage reflects the relationship between Christ and the Church. When a couple marry in the Church they ask for and receive God’s blessing on their union.
St Augustine’s is a beautiful place for a wedding.
Welcome and congratulations on your engagement. We wish you both every joy and happiness as you prepare and enter into marriage.
We believe God instituted marriage for His purposes and for our good. It is a great gift of God to men and women and we hope that you will come to experience how good it can be.
It is our desire to be as helpful as possible and to ensure your wedding day is both meaningful and happy.

NOTICE OF INTENDED MARRIAGE
The Notice of Intent must be signed at least one calendar month BEFORE the wedding and witnessed by the Rector. We suggest that you contact the Parish Office at least four months before your wedding to arrange a pre-wedding appointment with the Rector. This should allow plenty of time to ensure the Notice of Intent is signed in time. Please complete the notice of intent, but DO NOT SIGN, and give this document to the Rector at your pre-wedding interview with copies of your Birth Certificates and at least one Baptism Certificate.
It is a requirement of those marrying at St Augustine’s to attend a pre-marriage course. Please see the Prepare/Enrich Flyer in the wedding pack.
Please don’t hesitate to call the Office if you have any queries.
You may discuss any aspects of the Marriage service with us, including music, however, we are only able to use ‘Authorised Services’ as set by the Diocese of Brisbane.

Have you considered hiring the Lawns for post-ceremony celebrations? (St Augustine’s Church does not have a liquor license, so alcohol may be served but not sold on the premises.)
