St. John’s Toorak has been a popular and desirable church for couples planning to be married since the very first bride, Mary Steavenson (after whom the Victorian town of Marysville was named) was married at St. John’s in September, 1862. In addition to the outstanding beauty of the church, the 23 metre central aisle has provided a memorable walk to the altar for countless brides over the passage of years. St. John’s has developed a comprehensive wedding package that arises out of the long experience of the parish in hosting the marriages of all manner of people, among them many celebrities and prominent Melburnians. Marriages at St. John’s are celebrated in the beauty of one of Melbourne’s most prestigious and historic churches. Guests are surrounded by a sense of beauty, awe, tradition, and history.
