St John's Church is a stunning wedding venue and can seat over 200 in the main nave. Our traditional church organ and talented organist create the most beautiful music - adding a real sense of grandeur and excitement to your big day.

All who live in the parish are welcome to marry at St John's Church, whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised (christened) and regardless of whether you come to church or not. It's your church and we welcome you.
