Satanic Wedding FAQs

 

What is a Satanic Wedding?


A Satanic Wedding is a wedding officiated by a Minister of Satan. Almost every facet of the ceremony can be tailor-made to accurately celebrate every unique couple. Don’t expect a Bride to be walked down the aisle by a Father to be symbolically given away as property, but we’re able to integrate any unique and meaningful aspect to make it your very own.  

 

 

Where can I get married inside The Satanic Temple?


Couples have a variety of options within The Satanic Temple’s Salem Headquarters that they may be married. Some of these include:

In front of Baphomet

The most popular option: nuptials in front of our beautiful bronze Baphomet statue.

The sculpture features a winged, anthropomorphic goat headed figure flanked by two children - an African-American female and a Caucasian male. The context was intended to imply that without the preconceived notions of beauty versus the grotesque or the damned versus the sanctimonious, the subject is not one to be feared but reverently appreciated. Cast in bronze with a throne of brushed steel, the rendering is entirely unique unto itself, and was designed with the intention for it to be sat upon. This interactive element purposely eschews the idea of sanctity, allowing every viewer the opportunity to touch a work of fine art.

Milton Hall

Serving as our main function hall and primary exhibition space, Milton Hall is the cultural epicenter of Salem Art Gallery. A stunning mark of the preservation of original elements from the Edwards' home, the room features a 19th century marble fireplace, an ornately carved and gilded hardwood mirror, a meticulously crafted plaster medallion, and cameo laden cornices that accent each window.

La Voison Chamber

La Voison Chamber features two thrones and is named after the infamous fortune teller, commissioned poisoner, and supposed sorceress: Catherine Monvoisin. This rooms displays the ceremonial accoutrement of The Satanic Temple's co-founders, Malcolm Jarry and Lucien Greaves. Housing the Temple's collection of romantic literature that inspires modern Satanism among contemporary works by academic authors, La Voison Chamber pays a nod to the decadence and luxury of the pleasure seeking, blasphemous poets presented on its bookshelves.
