How legal is a Zoom Wedding? – The Wedding People

How legal is a Zoom Wedding?

Yes, a zoom wedding is fully legal - Worldwide

The only things you need to do are:

Legally apply with the Wedding People and get your Marriage License issued.

Go through a valid wedding ceremony with me as your official officiant according to state laws.

As a Official Marriage Officiant i will register your Marriage with the respective County who allows online Marriages.

The marriage Certificate will be handed over to you when the marriage is solemnized. A marriage is considered legal in the US when the beforehand mentioned steps were done.

Both state and federal laws consider a couple legally married when they hold a marriage certificate that has gone through all those steps and is duly recorded by the state.

The marriages done with the Wedding People are strictly gone through all those stages.

Federal and state laws follow procedures laid out specifically to make sure the marriage is legal. Here’s how we at the Wedding People are doing it:


It doesn’t matter where you live. The Wedding people automatically registering your marriage in a state that allows online marriages. That means that you dont need to live in the USA to obtain a marriage License with the Wedding People.

Not only is it simple to know that you can get married, but it is also the process. We will guide you personally through the application and will guide you through until our part of it is done, and your marriage is legally registered and recognized.


One of the processes required to make this legal is the Wedding Peoples officiant who records all the important information required to make all this legal, including important details like the date and place of the ceremony, the couple’s names, the names of the witnesses and a digital signature to complete the marriage.

NOTE: Digitally signed records are as legally binding as paper records or hand-signed documents.


When our officiant has entered all the informations, the system of the state will generate a digitally certified and completely legal copy of your Marriage License and a digital certificate of your Completed Marriage.

The information resides in a government database as proof that the marriage took place following the legal process.

The County sealed physical copy of your marriage certificate will be sent to you on the next available business day after the marriage got registered by the officiant of the Wedding people.

What if you are outside The United States?

If the couple is from outside the US, you might need an Apostille in order to get registered as married in the country you live. Marriage certificates often need to be legalised for international use. Many authorities abroad request a marriage certificate be provided with the apostille as proof of marriage.
