Marriage License Application Process
The Clerk of the Circuit Court issues marriage licenses but is not required to officiate marriage ceremonies. Please consult a local minister for a religious marriage ceremony or consult a civil celebrant for a civil marriage ceremony. A list of the civil celebrants who have been authorized by the Circuit Court is available from the Clerk’s Office or can be viewed by clicking here on List of Authorized Civil Celebrants

Marriage licenses are issued by the deputy clerks in the Public Services Division, located on the 2nd floor of the Loudoun County Courts Complex. The Loudoun County Courts Complex is located in downtown Leesburg at 18 East Market Street. Office hours for marriage licenses are Monday – Friday (except legal holidays), from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. You should plan to arrive no later than 3:30 pm to allow sufficient time for the Clerk’s Office staff to complete the application process. Additionally, there may several other marriage license clients awaiting services prior to your arrival.
