wedding ceremony


The floor to ceiling arched window provides a beautiful backdrop with views of the River Tamar, Calstock Viaduct, fields, woodlands and Cotehele House beyond.

The auditorium and balcony can accommodate up to 120 guests for a seated ceremony or up to 60-70 people at tables for a reception. Alternatively with the addition of the Kelly Room more space is available for the reception following the ceremony.

The Old Chapel is an approved venue licensed for weddings, civil partnerships, renewal of vows and civil naming ceremonies.

Wedding venue hire includes two arts centre volunteers who are on hand an hour before the ceremony to assist the Registrar, greet guests on arrival, help with seating and assist the ushers. They are present throughout the ceremony to ensure everything runs smoothly. If you need caterers, florists, photographers or boat hire we have the contacts.

Please note that the hire charge does not include the registrars’ payment, which must be arranged directly with them. We advise you to discuss and agree the date and time of the ceremony in advance with the Registration Officer at the local Registration Office and ensure that the appropriate legal civil preliminaries have been completed. A minimum of 4 weeks should be allowed for this.

We advise people to contact the Superintendent Registrar on Tel: 0300 1234 181.
