Christ Church Hawthorn is a very beautiful, historic and well-located venue for weddings. It is one of the oldest churches in Melbourne, with a rich history of Christian church life dating back to 1853.
Our Memorial Hall, on the same property and immediately adjacent to the historic church, is available for serving refreshments immediately after the ceremony and/or for your whole wedding reception.
Taking marriage seriously as God intends, we have pre-marriage sessions with couples, seeking a good understanding of Christian marriage and a good foundation for a lasting relationship.
Who can marry at Christ Church? In line with the requirements of the Anglican Church of Australia, and as provided for under Australian law, weddings at Christ Church are between a man and a woman. Couples who are not current members of our church are welcome to enquire, remembering that a wedding at Christ Church is a Christian ceremony. The remarriage of divorced people may sometimes be approved.
Every wedding is unique, and every couple’s circumstances and requirements are unique. We warmly encourage you to arrange to meet with one of the ministers at Christ Church to discuss the possibilities for your wedding.
To get a feel for the church, and to meet one of the ministers, you may like to attend one of our Sunday services at 8.30am (every Sunday except first Sunday of the month) or at 10am (every Sunday).
