Detailed information covering every aspect of weddings at St. Peter's is available through the church office during regular business hours.

Weddings are conducted in the main church sanctuary that accommodates up to 500 people or in the spectacular new chapel which accommodates up to 80 people in a more intimate atmosphere.

The buildings also contain modern kitchen and lounge facilities to handle banquets for up to two hundred people in pleasant surroundings, or a larger number for less formal arrangements.

Application Form

Wedding application forms are available from the Rector on Sunday mornings after worship.

Location

Most weddings take place in the main sanctuary but some smaller ceremonies may be better suited to the new chapel. Both spaces provide a beautiful setting.

Music

For the wedding ceremony St. Peter's can offer a high standard of music both in terms of instruments and skills. In the main sanctuary, the organ is considered the finest organ of its type between Toronto and Montreal. There is also a Bosenodorfer grand piano.

These instruments are played by a highly accomplished organist/pianist on a fee for service basis. Instrumentalists and singers may also be added.

Flowers

Arrangements for wedding flowers are made in consultation with the St. Peter's Chancel Guild.

Bells

The church tower contains a chime of ten bells. These can be played as an added feature before and after the wedding ceremony.

Photography

Limited photography is permitted during the ceremony itself. Following the service, however, the church surroundings offer excellent photography locations, as does Victoria Park.

For the Reception

Three major spaces are available for use by wedding receptions as follows:

Great Hall

The Great Hall which is adjacent to the kitchen can accommodate banquets for up to 150 people served from the restaurant-grade commercial kitchen or by hiring local caterers. Liquor licenses can be made available.

Hutton Lounge

The Hutton Lounge is a large, comfortable lounge area with seating for up to 80 people. Suitable for informal receptions, wedding rehersal parties, etc.

Upper Sheppard Auditorium

The Upper Sheppard Auditorium is an 1891 architecturally significant room suitable for sit-down dinners, from a special menu, for up to a 100 people.
