Marriage Ceremonies

Who Do We Perform Marriage Ceremonies For?

At least one of the persons getting married must be a resident of Royal Oak or Berkley.


What is Required to Get Married?

1.   You need to obtain a Marriage License from the Oakland County Clerk.  Visit their web page at https://www.oakgov.com/clerkrod/life-events-and-services/Pages/marriage-license.aspx  for more information.

2.  You need to bring $10 to pay for the ceremony.


Are You Allowed to Take Photographs, Etc.?

Yes, as an exception to our “no electronics” policy, we allow persons attending a wedding ceremony to bring in their cell phone, cameras, etc. to record the ceremony.
