Marriage is a beautiful life event and here at the Longbeach Anglican Church, we would be honoured to assist you along your journey. We welcome requests for weddings from all couples who desire to be married here. You do not have to attend this church or any church in particular. People of various church backgrounds or no religious affiliation can be married here.
Weddings usually take place on a Saturday. We do require that couples undergo marriage preparation with us and that the service is according to the rites of the Anglican Church of Australia (as is required by the Anglican Church of Australia and which is a legal requirement of its ministers).
Where people from another non-Anglican church would like the involvement of their own minister in their wedding, such as participation through preaching or the prayers can be arranged.
The government requires a minimum of one month’s written notice for a wedding to proceed. This is done by completing a Notice of Intention of Marriage (NOIM) which we provide to the couple when we first meet.
It is best to ring the church office well in advance to discover if your preferred date is available. This is also to allow sufficient time for the preparation as well as meetings with the minister to make all the arrangements.
