Ceremonies

I am happy to accommodate couples with their choice of ceremonies. Couples may, if they wish, write their own vows, and even their own ceremonies. It is their day, their wedding. My function is to officially pronounce their marriage, and I will do all I can to make the occasion as special as I can.

1. Marriage licenses may be obtained at any town hall in Massachusetts regardless of where the wedding ceremony is going to be performed.

Time Frames

Blood tests are no longer required, effective January 28, 2005. A Marriage License is good for 60 days, i.e., ceremony must take place within 60 days after filing of intention to marry, otherwise marriage license is void.

After the ceremony, I will usually file the Marriage Certificate with the Town Clerk within 1-2 weeks of the ceremony.

I am forbidden by state law from providing a copy of the completed license to the couple after the ceremony. Please let me know in advance if there is an immediate need for a certified copy, as arrangements can be made for sending the Certificate overnight to the appropriate town hall.
