Marriage License

If you are planning to get married in the Town of Woodbridge, you will need to come to the Woodbridge Town Clerk's office to obtain your marriage license. We ask that you fill out and return the marriage license worksheet before coming in for your license. The marriage license worksheet asks for the information that is to be entered on the marriage license as well as where the wedding will be held and who will be performing the ceremony. Once we have this information, we can prepare the license so it is ready when the two parties come in to sign it. Both parties must come in person, either together or separately, to sign the license. The license is good for 65 days and the fee is $30.
