How to Obtain a Florida Marriage Certificate:

Florida marriage records are considered public records so no restrictions exist for ordering these records for any date available. The marriage record you are concerned with must have occurred in Florida.

For copies of marriage records Florida Department of Health makes copies of marriage licenses from June 6, 1927 to the present. Earlier records are available from the Clerk of Courts in the county where the marriage took place. These addresses and date of marriage records available are included on the county pages.

Marriage records filed in the office beginning 1972 also include the marriage application.
