Quaker wedding

A traditional wedding ceremony in a Friends meeting is similar to any other Meeting for Worship. The attendees gather for silent worship, often with the couple sitting in front of the meeting. The promises are short, simple. Traditionally, Quakers do not swear or make oaths, because they intend to tell the truth at all times, and thus have no need of swearing. Since traditionally Friends have no clergy, there is no one person to marry them. Instead they believe that they are married by God, and declare their intentions before God and those gathered. The administrative tasks associated with the marriage are completed by a Registering Officer. However, this person is purely responsible for the administration of matters such as the certificate, and does not "marry" the couple. The couple then signs the Quaker wedding certificate. All those present are invited to give ministry with the gathered meeting as they feel led . At the close of worship all those present at the meeting are asked to sign the wedding certificate as witnesses.
