With its stunning interior and beautiful location, St Peter’s Church makes the perfect venue for your wedding ceremony.  Opened in 1832, this Victorian church, in the grounds of Stonyhurst College, is a small version of King’s College Chapel at Cambridge.

Exclusively for former Stonyhurst pupils, during school holidays, Stonyhurst College is available for a drinks and canapé reception after your wedding ceremony. At specific times of the year, we can also offer facilities for your wedding breakfast or evening reception.

Our function rooms offer something special for every reception – from the Top Refectory, ideal for a larger wedding party, to the Pieta Gallery, perfect for a more intimate wedding group. Our Grade I listed building encompasses all your needs, creating a unique backdrop to your wedding day.

To enquire about a wedding service in  St Peter’s Church, please email Fr Peter Griffiths at
