Burlington County couples looking to tie the knot this summer are in luck. County Clerk Tim Tyler announced today plans to perform free wedding ceremonies over the next several months at scenic locations all throughout the county.
“It is my pleasure to offer couples unique opportunities to exchange vows this summer at some of the most beautiful locations in the county,” said County Clerk Tyler, who has performed more than 2,600 weddings for Burlington County residents in the last ten years. “Helping couples start the next chapter of their lives together is a joyous service that I always look forward to providing.”
Weddings will kick-off in County Clerk Tyler’s hometown of Fieldsboro on Thursday, June 21 at the newly installed gazebo across from borough hall, which was made possible through the county’s municipal park grant program. Then on Monday, June 25, the trellis at the Burlington Township Veterans Park will host the County Clerk’s second day of weddings.
Later this summer Clerk Tyler will perform weddings at the beautiful Burlington County Agricultural Center in Moorestown and Palmyra Cove Nature Park on Friday, July 20 and Tuesday, August 21, respectively. Finally, on Friday, September 21, the Historic Smithville Mansion in Eastampton will be the venue for the Clerk’s fifth day of wedding ceremonies.
Weddings at all locations will begin at 3:00 p.m. with ceremonies scheduled until 6:00 p.m. Interested couples should contact the Clerk’s Office at (609) 265-5142 to ensure an appointment is available. Couples will need to obtain a marriage license from the town in which either of the parties resides. It takes 72 hours to obtain the license, so it shouldn’t be left until the last minute.
“There are a limited number of appointments available, so interested couples should contact the Clerk’s Office as soon as possible to schedule their ceremony,” added County Clerk Tyler. “I cannot wait to take part in such a special day for Burlington County couples and their families.”
County Clerk Tim Tyler regularly performs wedding ceremonies for Burlington County residents and persons posted to local military facilities.
