Your Justice of the Peace on Cape Cod

I look forward to being a part of your special day.

Meet Claire

My name is Claire Watts, and I hope to be the Justice of the Peace for your special wedding day.

I work with my clients  and lend my expertise to help  craft a memorable experience. Couples may choose to use my personally prepared ceremony and choose one of my vows, or vows that were written by them. If you would like a reading, I provide several of my favorite readings to choose from or couples may choose their own.


A lovely civil ceremony is my foundation for creating a wedding that is unique to you.


We will begin with a ceremony I have written. From there, you can choose to keep this as is, or we can work together to customize it to suit you. This can include any additions and changes you would like as well as choosing your own readings. My ceremonies are fully customizable so that it reflects you and your day.  Please note there is an upcharge for major changes.

My weddings have been performed on a number of beautiful Cape Cod beaches, lighthouses, country inns, homes, wedding locations, and also at my home in Sandwich. My home base is now in the Upper Cape, I do and will travel from Sandwich to the Eastham/Orleans area.

I welcome everyone and happily perform same-sex weddings with joy and dignity.

“We couldn't stop talking, after the wedding, about how wonderful everything was and it was all due to your efforts and your suggestion of Jimmy taking the photos. We loved everything about our special day. You are an amazing woman and Jimmy and Donna couldn't have been any more wonderful. Claire thank you again for a wonderful ceremony. It could not have been better. You are amazing and we have a new friend. Same with Jimmie and Donna. If you will please pass my email address to them."

“Just to say thank you so much for a truly wonderful ceremony on Thursday. Everyone commented on how lovely, intimate and perfect it was with all our family so engaged and involved in the ceremony itself. You were fantastic. It was a pleasure to meet you, we will send a photo when they are up and running, and we hope to see you during another Cape visit in the future! Thank you again for making our wedding so special, and for making us a lovely paper copy of the ceremony to treasure forever."

“I hope this finds you well!! I have thought of you many times and have also made many mental notes to remind myself to send you this email, and I'm finally getting to it!! Better late than never I suppose, ha ha. I wanted to thank you again for being so wonderful to Kim and I and our parents. We all had such a fantastic day with you out on Race Point, and it will of course ALWAYS be such a special memory for Kim and I. We feel very lucky that we were able to find you and truly felt like we both had known you forever. Thank you again Claire. Please keep in touch!!!"
