Some Practical Matters in Preparation for your Wedding

MUSIC: Our fine pipe organ is available if you wish to use it. 
Specialist skills are needed to play this instrument, so only our approved organists are allowed to play it. 
If you wish to use CDs, ipods etc. please bring these to the church for your wedding rehearsal, to see if they are compatible with our sound system. 
FLOWERS: The Parish does NOT arrange flowers for weddings.
The church may be decorated either by you or by a florist, with flowers of your own choice. 
It is wise to ring the Parish Office about a month before your wedding to see if there are other weddings on your day, and whether the other girls might like to share the flowers - and their costs with you. 
Please check with the Parish Office for a suitable time for you or the florist to arrange the flowers. 
Pew decorations are left for you to arrange.
REHEARSAL: Usually half an hour is allocated for the rehearsal. 
There is a wedding helper who will look after you at the rehearsal and on your wedding day, to ensure everything runs smoothly. 
OUR WEDDING HELPER IS TO BE TREATED WITH COURTESY AND RESPECT AT ALL TIMES.
Please arrange your rehearsal time with Berny Kirwan at the Parish Office (8862 4020).
PARKING: Off street parking is available in the church car park.
Entrance is in Lynch Street.
CHURCH DECORATIONS: At certain times of the year the church has liturgical decorations (banners, posters etc) which are central to our liturgical celebrations. 
These are not removed for events such as weddings, etc. 
FEES:
1. Your booking is provisional until the $1000 fee is paid.
2. Your priest will require a separate fee. Please discuss this with him at your first meeting.
3. Your wedding booking is for 1 hour.
4. The Church is to be left as you found it.
5. Confetti, rose petals and rice are strictly forbidden.
Failure to comply will incur costs for cleaning and / or repairs.
IF LATE: Late arrival of the bride can cause serious inconvenience to your guests and celebrant. 
Being late may result in your service being shortened so as to not affect the next wedding. 
PHOTOGRAPHERS: Must be discreet and follow directions from our Wedding Coordinator.
MARRIAGE PREPARATION PROGRAMS: Catholic Care offers a highly recommended pre marriage course.
