Civil Wedding Ceremony and Officiant Information
Any supreme court, circuit court, or municipal judge, or any court commissioner may perform civil wedding ceremonies in the state of Wisconsin.
If you desire to be married by a judge or court commissioner, please contact that person directly. The name of the person performing the ceremony and the time and place of the wedding must be known before applying for the marriage license.
Before applying for a marriage license, please make arrangements with a judge or court commissioner as to the date, time and place of the ceremony. The judges and court commissioners on the list will pick up your license rather than having you return to our office to get it.
