About Emmanuel Episcopal Church

Beauty. History. Sacredness. When you’re thinking about a location for your wedding, commitment ceremony, civil marriage blessing, or renewal of vows, consider all the advantages of historic Emmanuel Church. A short walk from the Boston Public Garden and halfway along the first block of Newbury Street, we offer our elegant Back Bay venue for that special day.

We are proud that Emmanuel is an open church. We invite all to be present with us, regardless of religious affiliation. Emmanuel is also a leader in welcoming and celebrating same-sex marriages. Our first such event took place nearly 30 years ago! Clergy of all denominations may officiate here, in addition to Emmanuel’s own clergy, who are available to you upon consultation. Emmanuel’s organist directs all music at weddings and other ceremonies.

Just behind the arched doorways at 15 Newbury Street are two superb spaces favored by generations of Bostonians, beginning in Victorian times and continuing through the present.

The Leslie Lindsey Memorial Chapel

The Lindsey Chapel holds pride of place as a Back Bay architectural jewel. Built specifically as a Lady chapel and memorial to Leslie Lindsey Mason, it seats about 125 people.

Our Sanctuary

With stone angels gazing down from the pillars and stained glass windows casting rainbow light all around, this majestic space is glorious to behold. The spectacular "Emmanuel's Land Window," rededicated in 2008 after a three-year restoration, occupies a prominent spot high on the left side of the nave.

This, Emmanuel’s largest area, seats more than 500 people. Its excellent acoustics draw countless musical and performing organizations year round from our city, region, and overseas.

Planning a ceremony? Do consider our magnificent worship spaces. They are certain to amaze and delight you. To request a copy of our wedding brochure or to schedule a visit to 15 Newbury Street, email our wedding coordinator.
