This is a list of the approved Civil Marriage Commissioners that perform marriage ceremonies.  There may be other persons who perform marriage ceremonies, but please confirm with your celebrant that they have been duly authorized by a Virginia Circuit Court to perform marriage ceremonies. A Virginia-qualified civil celebrant performing the marriage ceremony must return the completed license to the Clerk's Office within five days of the marriage ceremony.
