Tuesday is Valentine’s Day, meaning plenty of amorous couples will be looking to tie the knot on the most romantic day of the year, and the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office is ready to oblige.
The department’s main office in Norwalk will be offering civil wedding ceremonies from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., while ceremonies will be conducted from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at six branch offices.
No appointment is needed to get married, with ceremonies offered on a walk-in basis. But there is a cost involved. A civil wedding ceremony costs $35. A public marriage license costs $91, while the cost of a confidential license is actually slightly less, at $85.
