Marriages - Affordable pricing & at your location
Florida is one of the few states that allow Notaries Public to perform or "solemnize" marriages within the state. As a Wedding Officiant I do solemnize marriages and my fee for this service is $40 which includes travel, preparation and up to a 30 minute wait time.
Before a marriage can be solemnized, you must first obtain the required marriage license from the clerks office located in your closest Courthouse. You can obtain one from the county clerks office at their office in downtown Bartow. You can find out more information by visiting their website HERE.
Both the groom and the bride must have valid photo ID to present along with the marriage license before a ceremony can be performed.
I will come to your location and perform the ceremony. There are several options, rings, vows or no rings and just vows, I'm easy to work with and available on short notice. NOTE: I prefer casual dress or informal weddings, Biker weddings are especially welcome! I just don't care to wear suits or get dressed up anymore in Florida, too hot, too uncomfortable. Sorry. Informal weddings ONLY! Jeans, Sperry topsiders and a Tommy Bahama button down shirt are as dressed up as I will get.
Additionally, I provide a gold embossed certificate of the marriage for you to keep and cherish. (see seal image to the right). This is included in my $40 fee! You may also see a sample certificate HERE.
I am available days, evenings and weekends for your convenience but prefer advanced notice.
