St Peter's Church is an ideal location. Weddings are perhaps one of the most important occasions in anybody's life, and we at St Peter’s would guarantee you the warmest welcome if you chose to have your wedding at our church. Weddings are not booked by email or telephone but in person. Please telephone the Reverend Rachel Webbley to see her at the Vicarage.
If you can, please bring photocopies of your passport or driving licence with you as proof of identity as this is a legal requirement.
Before you decide to get married at St Peter’s you may want to explore this link which will provide you with plenty of details on getting married in church.
As we get to know you we will share with you our Christian understanding of what the wedding ceremony means. The minister taking the service, who is likely to be either the Reverend Rachel Webbley or Fr Chris, will also want to get to know you and help you plan your service so as to make it as special a day as we possibly can for you.
When you read the details on the website just mentioned, you will discover that at least one of you should have an address which you consider "home" in the parish of Whitstable in order to book a wedding here.
If this is not the case there are some new rules which mean that even if you do not live in the parish you may be able to marry at St Peter’s. Talk to the Reverend Rachel Webbley about this.
Also, if either of you have been married before, you should contact the Reverend Rachel Webbley, as although divorcees are married at St Peter’s there are circumstances where this may not be possible, especially if the new relationship developed during the period when the previous marriage was in existence.
With every good wish,
The Reverend Rachel Webbley
