Weddings at All Souls Church in Braintree
- open to persons of all faiths
We welcome you to explore celebrating your wedding at All Souls Church. Please scroll down on this page for information about renting our parish hall for receptions and parties.
All Souls Church welcomes you to hold your wedding ceremony in our Sanctuary. With its cathedral ceiling and stone exterior, our church provides a dramatic yet peaceful setting.
We embrace many faiths and lifestyle choices; weddings are in the Unitarian Universalist tradition of being open and affirming to all. In addition to weddings of Unitarian Universalists, we also perform weddings for people of other faiths and interfaith weddings, as well as same-sex weddings. You do not have to be a member of our congregation to use our Sanctuary and there is no requirement that you be Unitarian Universalist. However, the service must be respectful of the space and a meeting with a church official is required.
You may use your own officiant or arrange for the services of our minister, the Reverend Beau Rivers. To have our minister, Rev. Beau, officiate your wedding, please email her to learn more. (Ministerial services and payment are arranged separately from the sanctuary rental).
The building has an accessible entrance with ramp on the right hand side of the building. We have two single-stall, all-gender restrooms, one of which is ADA compliant, with a baby changing station. There is a small parking lot behind the church on Charles Street.
Please email the office or call 781-843-1388 to schedule a visit to see the church or for more information. Best time for an appointment is Sunday at 11:30 am. A $100 deposit and signed agreement are required to secure the rental. Payment in full must be received no later than one week before the event.
