We have just heard from the Priest about the cost of the wedding.
He is charging $950 for a country church in South East Queensland.
That does not include flowers, order of service, organist or anything really apart from the Priest and the Church itself.
Is this normal?
The Church is only used once a month for services. There are no gardens to maintan. It is not being repaired or restored.
So I want to know, what am I paying for?
Oh and I also can only do approved readings in a certain Bible and all confetti (and I mean rose petals etc) is banned in case someone slips on them and sues (but bubbles are allowed which aren't slippery at all!) but it is in the bush and there are sticks, leaves and gumnuts which are ok apparantly.
So was this a normal charge for people getting married in a Church?
