Thank you for your interest in having your marriage ceremony here at King's Chapel! King’s Chapel has been the scene of hundreds of weddings since the Reverend Robert Ratcliffe celebrated New England’s first wedding here on May 18, 1686, only three days after his arrival in Boston. Our historic sanctuary built in 1754 provides a beautiful surrounding for friends and family as they witness you exchanging your vows and take another step along life’s journey together.
For weddings with less than 40 guests we offer a more intimate setting in The Little Chapel at our Parish House, a historic townhouse with a charm all its own at 64 Beacon Street.
Our wedding service comes out of the Anglican tradition and can be found in our Prayerbook. It is a service steeped in tradition through which the couple exchanges their vows and rings as a symbol of their commitment. Friends and family are asked whether they, too, will stand by you and provide support as you keep one another. With everyone invested in the union, the service concludes with a blessing. We encourage you to participate in our Sunday services, which are at 11 am, to get acquainted with our liturgy and the church.
Consistent with our welcome of all, we marry couples of any faith or sexual orientation in the inclusive spirit of the One we worship.
If you have any questions about having a wedding at King's Chapel, please contact Julina Rundberg, Parish Administrator, at 617-227-2155 x 108 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment of Fees
The fee for the use of the church is due on receipt of the letter confirming your wedding date. Confirmation is not considered final until these fees are received. Checks should be made out to "the Society of King's Chapel" and sent to the King's Chapel Parish House at 64 Beacon Street, Boston MA 02108. The fees for the minister and organist are due at or in advance of the rehearsal. See the Fee Sheet for details. If there is a case of financial hardship, the minister will be glad to discuss—and possibly adjust—some of the fees. Under most circumstances, if the couple cancels the wedding after the date has been confirmed, $500 of the church fee is nonrefundable. Please read the following two documents before submitting your wedding application.
