Marriage Ceremony Request

Complete the form below to request a marriage ceremony performed by a Seattle Municipal Court judge

Seattle Municipal Court judges are available to perform marriage ceremonies at the courthouse at 4:30 p.m. every weekday. The courthouse is closed on weekends and holidays, however judges can perform marriage ceremonies at flexible times at a location of your choosing. There are a limited number of marriage ceremonies available per day, so we may not be able to accommodate all requests. 

Wedding parties are limited to a total of six people, including the couple and four witnesses. All members of the wedding party are required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing.We do not accept requests that are made more than 8 weeks in advance before the requested date. If your wedding date is more than 8 weeks away, please wait to submit your request.  

Once your request has been submitted, a Judicial Assistant will contact you within one week with next steps.
