We have two wonderful, historic buildings in Portishead that make an ideal venue for your wedding.
St Peter’s Church
Just off the High Street, is over seven hundred years old. It seats 200, has a traditional organ and choir, a wonderful set of bells and an award winning garden as the perfect location for your photographs.
St Nicholas Church
On the Nore Road, is 100 years old and the former chapel of the Nautical School. Set on the edge of an area of woodland, it seats 150, has a traditional organ and choir, and has a wonderful long aisle for the grand entrance of the bride.
You can book a wedding at either of our churches if you or your partner or any of your parents live or have lived in Portishead, regardless of your current connection with either church. Even if you have never lived in Portishead it may still be possible to get married in one of our churches so why not give us a call!
We are registered for Church of England weddings but are very happy for ministers from other denominations to take an active part in the ceremony.
We conduct weddings, blessings after a civil ceremony, renewal of vows and will offer prayers after a civil partnership ceremony. We are happy to conduct weddings where one or both have been previously married.
We enjoy working with couples to shape the ceremony to their requirements and are happy to involve others in the ceremony. Just talk to us and share your ideas so we can work with you in making the service all that you would want it to be.
In the first instance couples for either church should contact our administrator:
Juliet, at our Church Office
