Why St John’s is such a favourite church wedding venue in Weymouth

Beautiful church for weddings in Weymouth.

Looking for the best wedding venues in Weymouth?  St John’s Church is a very popular location for weddings in Weymouth.

The beautiful Grade II* spire is the most prominent and building on Weymouth seafront, with spectacular church tower, unique gothic architecture with many architectural features inside the church, carved in stone.  

All these things create a wonderful atmosphere for your wedding day.

Brides usually choose to enter through the West Tower, giving a wonderful photo opportunity on the steps on arrival.  The tower Lobby provides plenty of room for final adjustments, before walking down the aisle.

The church has a magnificent organ, comfortable chairs, new carpet and has recently been redecorated. We also have a large raised and well-lit dais (low stage) which means everyone will be able to see you taking their vows, with the beautiful chancel behind. The dais is also excellent for a worship band or soloists to use during your wedding service.  

We have an excellent sound system, and capability (by special arrangement) to Live Stream your wedding service on YouTube for any of your wedding guests who are unable to attend.

Our well-kept church gardens, and close proximity to Weymouth Beach, both make for stunning wedding photographs, happy memories and a perfect wedding day for couples and their guests.  In the event of rain, there is plenty of room on the dais steps inside the church (with altar behind) for wonderful photos of small groups or the entire wedding party.

We also have a large car park, which is a massive bonus so close to the sea, for your wedding guests.

The church is a also great venue for receptions, meetings, events, concerts, theatre performances, workshops, conferences and special occasions, with a fully fitted large kitchen and all facilities for professional catering onsite.

St John’s is a wonderful venue for wedding celebrations.

The church also offers a great venue for other events, concerts, conferences and special occasions.
