marriage after the manner of friends

 Occasionally couples ask for and receive permission to be married “after the manner of Friends.” Couples may have questions about the appropriate procedure for a “Quaker style” wedding. Overseers should be willing to give such guidance. Couples who are not members of the Meeting should be advised that neither the Meeting nor the Clerk may sign legal certificates or documents for them.
