New Sharon United Methodist Church

Where Friends Become Family


A wedding in the church is a religious ceremony; flash photographs may not be taken from inside the Sanctuary during the service. Please discourage flash photos taken by guests in the wedding service. It is especially distracting to all involved and disrupts the service of worship. If you are having a printed program, it is helpful to include the following: Please refrain from taking flash photos during this service of Christian Marriage. Time exposures are permitted from the narthex (vestibule) or balcony if they are taken quietly. Photographers are to abide by the time allotment (90 minutes prior/90 minutes after) and are to dress appropriately for the service.

By pre-arrangement, the church can provide a low-cost, excellent quality video. Additional videotaping may be made from behind the last row of pews with equipment that is operated quietly.
