Make your Wedding Day extra special, yet different and less formal - hire a steam-hauled train to collect you and your guests from one of our Stations between Tywyn and Dolgoch and carry you to Abergynolwyn Station for the wedding ceremony.
The Talyllyn Railway's tea room at Abergynolwyn Station is licensed to hold civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies.
The tea room will be reserved and prepared with flowers, table and seating for the formal ceremony. Afterwards, light refreshments can be served followed by photo opportunities around the station and train before it takes you and your party back down the line to the Station of your choice - you might think of using King's Licensed Cafe for your Reception, for example. We'll provide a special, personalised headboard for your own train service which is yours to keep.
Typically, the Wedding Party and guests (wedding groups of up to forty people) join a special train at Tywyn Wharf station for the forty-five minute journey to Abergynolwyn. They are met there by the Registrar who will spend a few minutes talking to the happy couple before the ceremony.
After the ceremony there is time for photographs with the train and light refreshments before you return to Tywyn in your special train, the total time taken being about three hours. The train carries an individual headboard which is yours to keep and you can choose the locomotive and carriages from the stock which is operational at the time.
Each station you will use is a working one and your wedding will be individually organised to suit the requirements of everyone involved. The facilities are available most days of the year although it may be difficult to arrange matters for weekdays during our peak season (late July to end of August) because of the frequency of service trains. Your train and arrangements will therefore operate to a timetable suggested by the Talyllyn Railway and largely dictated by the normal service in operation on your chosen day.
