Marriages

Introduction

Every marriage is slightly different because each couple is different.  At Tavistock United Reformed Church we allow you to design your wedding service with guidance from the Minister. The most important thing to remember is that planning a wedding takes time – at the outset you need to book the church and begin to make arrangements for the service. When you meet with the Minister you will be able to decide how many meetings are required and whether you would like any marriage preparation discussions to talk about life as a married couple.

The church is registered for all types of marriage. It is one of the few churches offering same sex marriage in Devon.

The Church

The church has a seating capacity of 200, with 80 seats in the main space and 120 on pews in the gallery above. There is both an organ and an electric piano.   It is also possible to play music over the sound system.   If you wish to invite your own musicians, this can be accommodated.

Provision for Disabled People

There is ramped access to the building for wheelchair users and toilet facilities for people with disabilities.   There is an excellent amplification system and a loop system for people with impaired hearing.    We can also produce large print versions of the order of service. The data projector and screen can be used for pictures and for hymn words.

Photography

During the service it is possible to take photographs, but not flash photography.  It is also possible to video record your wedding; please ask for a copy of the copyright guidelines.

Car Parking

The church does not have a car park of its own but a public car park is very close by and there are other public car parks within walking distance. Tavistock bus station is also within a five minute walk from the church.
