WEDDINGS AT TEDDINGTON METHODIST CHURCH
Your special day
We are absolutely delighted that you are interested in being married in Teddington Methodist Church and committed to helping you explore what is best for your special day. The church is a beautiful Festival of Britain style building which can seat up to 100 people. We are very flexible in arranging the style of service to suit you. There is an electronic organ, an electronic piano and facilities to play recorded music.
Married in church
Marriage in the Methodist Church can be between any two people. You don’t need to be church members to be married in the church, but we would hope that you to want God to be a part of your marriage. The service is a time to pray for God’s blessing on your marriage that you might, as the service says, “Experience life-long unity of heart, body and mind” and “know the security of love and care and grow towards maturity”.
The first step is to meet with the minister. The best way is to arrange with him to come along to one of our Sunday morning services so that you can see the facilities and so that your wedding isn’t the first time that that you have been to a service in the church.
The legal bit
You will need to visit the registry office to arrange the necessary paperwork. The registrar will guide you through the paperwork, but the date for the service must be confirmed with the minister before you visit the registrar.
Preparing for marriage
Your wedding day is only the start of your marriage. To help you prepare for married life, the minister will arrange to meet with you a few times before your special day to talk about the lifetime ahead. And remember, all of our marriages come with full lifetime warranty. If things go wrong, we are here to help and support you through challenging times.
Fees are discussed with the minister, depending on what facilities you wish to use. Compared to the amount that is sometimes spent on weddings, the church fees are a very small proportion of the cost of your special day.
David A. Innes, Minister
