Weddings

In Christian marriage, a couple commit themselves to each other into a life-long union based on Christian love and mutual respect. The couple acknowledges the presence of God in their lives as a source of strength, love and forgiveness.

Marriages today, depend much on the mutual support and love within the couple and family relationship which constantly needs growth and enrichment.

Parishioners and Catholics from any parish are welcome to celebrate their marriages in the Cathedral according to the Rites of the Catholic Church and requirements of Australian Laws and Diocesan and Cathedral guidelines. Marriages may be celebrated at the Cathedral on most days but advance booking and preparation are essential.

See Cathedral Requirements regarding celebrations of marriages in the Cathedral: eg bookings, music, flowers, costs.
