Planning Your Wedding

Looking for a place to hold your wedding and reception? Would you like everything that you need in one location? Would you want a classy reception hall with a wood burning fireplace? A beautiful courtyard for photos or for the wedding ceremony, complete with a statuesque cherry tree and an arbor? A large hall for the celebration meal with new round tables and upholstered chairs - tableware as well, with a capacity of 200  and a portable stage for your band or DJ? A professional kitchen for your caterer? And, if you wish, a breathtaking church for the wedding ceremony? All of this is available at St.Paul's Anglican Church in Dunnville. Check out the photos!


Contact the parish priest at least 90 days before the date you would like to get married. This allows time for proper preparation and for a conversation with the priest about the details of the service. It also allows you to be informed about the parish’s policy on weddings.

Next Steps

For more information about weddings, please contact Rev. Wayne Fraser (905-774-6005) Wednesdays and Thursdays at St. Paul's Anglican church.
