Same day marriages are fine! By appointment only. Usually available within 20 minutes
Located at 136 South Loudoun St, just a 5 min walk from the Winchester/Frederick County courthouse.

Same Day Marriage
You’ve decided that it is time to get married and you are considering the Winchester Wedding Chapel. The ceremony room is a small, intimate setting where you and up to four guests can gather for your marriage vows. You have the choice of you coming to our little ceremony room, or we can come to your home, or we can meet at a place you’ve chosen for your vows.
You want to exchange vows without all the hoopla and expense of a big wedding. Maybe this is your second marriage, maybe you want just a small private ceremony , or maybe you just want to get married now and have a big event later. Whatever your reason, the Winchester Wedding Chapel is a great place to “run away” to and get married.
Where do the ceremonies take place?
They can place at:
- Our small ceremony room 3 blocks from the courthouse
- The tree in front of the courthouse
- On the walk way in front of the courthouse
- Your home
- Our office
- Wilkins Lake (the duck pond)
- My Hebron Chapel (they ask for a donation to use their chapel..$50 is a appropriate)
- Or other location of your choice
The Winchester Wedding Chapel is an easy location for many who are coming from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland or Northern Virginia. And getting the marriage license is as easy as pie. The courthouse is just two blocks away from the Winchester Wedding Chapel in downtown Winchester VA. It takes only 20 minutes to get the license, 20 minutes to get married at the chapel, and 20 minutes to go back to the courthouse and get your certified copies if you choose to do it all in the same day.
Easy on the Pocket
And the fees are very low. The courthouse fee for the license is $35. The usually fee for us to do the ceremony is typically a $75 – $150 contribution to our veterans ministry group.
And if you go back to the court to get your certified copies on the same day, they are $3 for each copy. This makes the Winchester Wedding Chapel as low cost as it is convenient.
You will want to check the schedule to see if your selected date and time is available. The ministers are a team of military veterans who love to help make your day special. We are usually on call most any time of day or evening. Weekend hours may be available, but the fees are considerably different and Rev. Lance has church responsibilities on weekends that must be scheduled around.

to schedule your marriage.
