News Release


Registration is Now Open for Couples. Space Limited. Deadline Friday, February 10

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (January 10, 2017) – Clerk Sharon Bock, the National Croquet Center and local community partners will give 40 couples a Valentine’s Day wedding ceremony to remember – for free.

Couples can register now for the group wedding ceremony, which is set for 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 14, at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach. Clerk Bock will preside over the ceremony, and the Croquet Center is once again donating its facility.

“Over the years, I’ve married hundreds of happy couples on Valentine’s Day,” Clerk Bock said. “Helping these couples to start a new life together is one of the best parts of being Clerk & Comptroller in Palm Beach County. It is truly a special day.”

The event is made possible by the sponsorship of the National Croquet Center who has enlisted the following businesses to donate their services for the wedding ceremony:

“It’s so nice to be able to give back to the community like this every year,” said Scott Reiser, director of events at the National Croquet Center. “The couples are always so excited, so we’re thrilled to partner with Clerk Bock to be a part of this day.”

Couples must register for the 2017 wedding by calling the Clerk’s office at 561.355.2468 during business hours or by sending an email to ccpbc@mypalmbeachclerk.com. Registration for the ceremony will continue through Friday, February 10, or until all 40 spaces are filled.

All couples taking part in the Valentine’s Day wedding must present a valid marriage license at the ceremony. Information about license requirements and fees can be found on mypalmbeachclerk.com/marriage.

The Florida Constitution established the independent office of the Clerk & Comptroller as a public trustee, responsible for safeguarding public records and public funds. Clerk Sharon Bock is directly elected by and accountable to Palm Beach County residents. In addition to the roles of Clerk of the Circuit Court, County Recorder and Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners, the Clerk & Comptroller is the Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Auditor for Palm Beach County.
