ROYAL WEDDING CHAPEL Aboard THE QUEEN MARY
Queen Mary Royal Wedding Chapel
1126 Queens Highway
Long Beach, California 90802
The Royal Wedding Chapel aboard the majestic Queen Mary is a truly unique location to exchange vows, and weddings outdoors on the deck are increasingly popular. Most brides also plan their reception aboard in one of the ship's original salons and reserve Hotel Queen Mary staterooms for the wedding party and their out-of-town guests.
The Queen Mary is docked at the South End of the 710 Freeway, on the Water in Long Beach, California.
The Queen Mary Royal Wedding Chapel was originally the second-class smoking room. A steward's pantry and service bar provided refreshments to the lounge from behind the forward bulkhead. The room is decorated with British brown oak burl wood; the pillars are walnut. The smoking room seated 166 passengers in large, upholstered chairs and settees divided into groups by panels of Indian padouk wood from Burma and the Aman Islands. Matching tables with reversible tops were used for writing and card playing. The chapel's elegant doors were repositioned from the Sun Deck Verandah Grill.
Things have changed. The warm elegance remains, but the space is now totally suited to its new role as a chapel. Today, the Queen Mary Royal Wedding Chapel hosts approximately 600 ceremonies per year.
According to your personal preference, your ceremony may be denominational or non-denominational. A ship's chaplain or an ordained minister is available to officiate your wedding. Remember that officiate fees are not included in the wedding package.
