PLANNING YOUR WEDDING
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Midhurst United Church recognizes marriage as the long-term love commitment of two people. The wedding ceremony is an official declaration and celebration of your love. You do not need to be a member of the church to have your wedding in Midhurst United Church. The minister will perform the marriage ceremony in compliance with Ontario law. The wedding ceremony is planned with the minister who will explain necessary requirements, will offer suggestions and will include your personal ideas. The minister may also be available to do off-site weddings. Please call the church at 705-722-6331 to discuss possibilities with the minister.
DO YOU NEED WEDDING CEREMONY SPACE FOR UP TO 200 PEOPLE?
The Large Sanctuary holds about 200 people seated on chairs, which can be arranged as you choose. This beautiful room requires little decoration to make it intimate and personal. As well, the wedding party has access to the two entrances (into both sanctuaries) and the Family Room for meeting and organizing before the procession so that your wedding ceremony can follow your personal preferences. These church spaces are accessible to people with mobility devices.
