Special Ceremonies

At the Chapel we hold various ceremonies, known as 'Rites Of Passage', as they mark important occasions which can be seen as transitions from one stage in life to another, or even from life on this Earth to whatever may follow.


The current standard fees (updated as of November 2014) for Rites of Passage at Belper Unitarian Chapel are as follows:

Weddings
The fee for a wedding (whether same or different sex, we offer both) is £565.
Note 1: If no organist is required then this fee can be reduced by £50.
Note 2: In cases of financial hardship the chapel has the discretion to be able to reduce the fee. Please ask if this applies to you.
