Wedding Vows

Have you considered getting married in your local parish church, St Peters, off Bocking End, Braintree?  You can do this if you live in the parish or have a family connection with St Peters.

An old building like St Peters, where people have worshipped for over 100 years, gives to your special day a spiritual presence.  You will make your vows surrounded by your friends and well-wishers and then go to kneel before the altar asking God for his blessing and help.

St Peters has a fine oak screen, pipe organ and lovely stained glass at the east and west ends.

Our robed choir is usually available to give weight and dignity to the occasion.
