What a joyous celebration a wedding can be! To this end, we offer our beautiful church located in Essex, Massachusetts, right by our famous tidal river and the many Essex restaurants. As a Universalist Church, we offer a religious tradition of openness and acceptance for your ceremony, in a building with classic New England charm, a traditional sanctuary with organ and piano, and a very functional layout.
General Policies and Guidelines
Reserving a Date
Finding an Officiant
Please note that if the officiant is an out-of-state member of the clergy, he or she must obtain a Certificate of Authorization from the Public Records Division of the Secretary of the Commonwealth prior to the ceremony. It is recommended that such an application be made well in advance of the wedding date. For more information, contact them at (617) 727-2836.
Fees paid to the officiant are paid directly to that person. If you are using the services of our minister, the check should be made payable to Rev. Eva Cameron. Please see the “Schedule of Fees” below.
