Joyous Celebrations

We’re happy that you’re looking at Shandon for your wedding, and we’d like to help make it a wonderful, spiritually significant and joyous celebration. It should be simple, reverent and in keeping with the liturgy, rituals, and traditions of the church.

To reserve the Sanctuary or Chapel for a wedding, the bride, the groom, or one of their parents or grandparents must be a current active memberof Shandon for at least six months prior to scheduling the wedding date.

Because COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future, transmission of this virus could occur during the resumption of in-person church activities, including weddings. Until pandemic restrictions are lifted, Shandon’s basic plan is to have only the families and wedding party attend in person. There is some flexibility on exactly how many people, depending on the size of your family and wedding party.

Reservations for church facilities including the rehearsal and ceremony, etc. must be made through the church office. Upon your engagement and selection of a proposed wedding date, contact Jennifer Cox, Administrative Assistant for the Senior Minister, at jcox@shandon-umc.org or 803-256-8383, ext. 101 as far in advance as possible.

For additional information, please take a look at our Wedding Guide. We’ve tried to anticipate some of your questions and have developed this guide to help you plan your wedding. We’ll be happy to discuss other details and answer any questions you have.
