Valentine’s Day weekend: Sussex Marriage Bureau vows to perform ceremonies

GEORGETOWN – Sussex County’s Marriage Bureau is taking to heart the old adage that love knows no boundaries.

Staff in the Marriage Bureau is accepting appointment reservations now to perform marriage ceremonies on Valentine’s Day weekend.

Clerk of the Peace John F. Brady and his staff will be available by appointment Saturday, Feb. 13, and Sunday, Feb. 14, to perform marriage ceremonies at the County Administrative Offices building on The Circle in Georgetown.

“The Marriage Bureau has what I call an ‘open hearts and open door’ policy – we’re here to welcome in couples with love and care, and we’re here to do it no matter the time of day,” Mr. Brady said. “What better way to spend Valentine’s Day weekend than to be surrounded by so much love and help people make memories that will last a lifetime?”

Slots are available on both days, but couples must reserve in advance. Couples also must obtain a valid Delaware marriage license at least 24 hours in advance of any scheduled ceremony. Information about licensing requirements and rates can be found online at

For additional information or to schedule a ceremony with the Sussex County Marriage Bureau, call 853-1717.
