2. Call your local Marriage License Office and ask them if you need to file a copy of your ordination with them, or meet any other requirement before doing a wedding ceremony. Only a few states require filing a copy of your credentials.  Check the Marriage Laws in Virginia below for details about your state.

3. Perform the wedding....We suggest you get a copy of World Christianship Ministries "Marriage Minister Handbook" before doing a wedding.  It is a "straight to the point" guide for everything concerning the wedding, such as: handling the Marriage License, where people stand, example marriage ceremonies, opportunities open to you as a Marriage Minister, Advertising, Location of Ceremonies, what to wear, and more. (Based on over 2,000 weddings performed by the Administrator of WCM).

Virginia Marriage Laws

Virginia requires ministers to register and file a copy of Ordination Credentials and Letter of Communion / Good Standing before allowing you to do weddings in Virginia.

Note: We have found over the last 34+ years that Virginia allows individual counties, sometimes individual clerks, to approve or disapprove applications for doing weddings even though that minister is meeting state requirements.  The good part is that it does not matter which county approves you. If your county turns you down you can apply to another county and that authority is good throughout the state. If you are turned down give us a call and we can provide a list of some counties where there should be no problems applying. Virginia also requires that you have a document showing that you are in Communion with the Ordaining authority.
