Southern California & Orange County Wedding Ceremony & Marriage Vows… Justice-Of-The-Peace, Wedding Judges & Other Civil Marriage Presiders

(714) 970 8839  

For marrying couples requiring a Justice of the Peace or other civil marriage officiator for their civil or non-religious wedding ceremony & marriage vows

As you already might know, it is difficult to find a justice of the peace in California. Certainly challenging to locate a skilled civil marriage officiator (non-denominational clergy, judge or non-religious marriage celebrant) specializing in the writing and performing of the civil ceremony. Adamant about a non-religious marriage ceremony, a bride and groom needs to locate a committed, reliable, skilled and willing civil ceremony officiator. This task can be even harder, when looking for an Orange County, California civil ceremony presider. Especially as there is not an official justice of the peace or “marrying” judge system in California. If an officiator claims to be a justice of the peace, they are not being forthright. Most probably they are a non-denominational or denominational clergy claiming to be such.

Why Are You Finding It Difficult?

In the case of a justice of the peace…

Unlike other states, there is no “justice of the peace” system in California. A couple wanting an exclusively non-religious or civil marriage ceremony, to be held at their wedding location of choice, is limited to two options. With one of the options being the most viable and most utilized...

  • The non-denominational clergy
  • The “licensed for the day” friend or family member

For details on both options contact TCN

Some Characteristics Of A Civil Wedding Officiator Or Marriage Celebrant

Some of the following:

  • Make certain that your prospective civil wedding officiator is degreed in his/her field. Ruling out those without long - time officiating experience, part-timers, beginners, internet or mail-order ordained, the questionable or those officiating just for fun, is an important start. A screened, career, professional officiator is a minimum standard from which to start.
  • Make certain that your prospective wedding officiant is a non-denominational clergy
  • Will guarantee your civil or non-religious wedding ceremony content and is experienced in presenting the same.
  • Is based with a reputable Orange County civil officiators group. A screened, career civil officiator with professional local Orange County wedding affiliations.
  • Has a working experience with wedding locations in Orange County - Los Angeles County - San Bernardino - Riverside County or San Diego County. The more experience the better!
  • Consider the officiator’s physical qualities in the light of the marriage ceremony environment - inarticulate or soft speaking voice, untidy appearance, character, confident, friendly, or overall state of health
  • Consider the officiator’s knowledge of your specific marriage ceremony location. For example, the officiator’s actual experiences at your chosen wedding venue… i.e. their opinion on the venue’s sound system, the location’s wedding coordinator, caterer, etc.
  • Will be the one who presides over your marriage ceremony. You do not want to meet with one officiant only to have another show up on the wedding day. One that has not agreed to non-religious wedding ceremony content.
  • Will supply guaranteed “back-up”, in the event of their illness. The “back-up” should perform the already agreed to civil / non-religious marriage ceremony. This “back-up” should also abide by the other terms discussed with your primary officiator.
  • Make certain that the civil marriage officiant consults with the wedding professionals directly related to your wedding ceremony & transition to the wedding reception festivities. The wedding reception caterer, event planner or banquet coordinator, photographer, videographer, D.J., musicians, etc, are to be included in this list.
  • Will add the warmth and personality to your ceremony, strongly needed in civil or non-religious marriage ceremony content. A civil or non-religious wedding ceremony should not just focus on avoiding religious statements, so that it sacrifices the heart and soul of the bride and groom… their future hopes, and present feelings of love for each other, not expressed.
