Marriage Commissioners

Marriage commissioners are individuals authorized by the court to perform marriages in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Ministers listed are those who have expressed a willingness to perform marriages for the laity.

Marriage celebrants are authorized to charge $75 for mere performance of a marriage at their residence or place of business. "Celebrants are free to negotiate additional fees with the parties to the marriage; however, for traveling to other locations, for attendance at rehearsals, for providing facilities or accommodations for wedding guests, and for other optional services, including reimbursement for mileage and other out-of-pocket expenses." (Title 20-27 and the 1992 Report of the Attorney General 101)
