Clergy Profile: I'm a 3rd Degree Priestess of the Braided Wheel Tradition.
New York State does not license clergy to perform legal marriages. New York City does.
In order to perform a legally binding wedding ceremony in New York State, outside of New York City, an officiant must be a member of a religious organization (it can be an unincorporated organization) that meets at least once a year for the purpose of religious observations, and be recognized by that organization as being qualified to perform such a religious ceremony.
This effectively means that if you are a member of a working coven and your coven members agree that you are qualified to perform weddings, then you are. I have performed several weddings. Before I performed my first wedding I made sure that several respected members of the local pagan community were willing to write letters testifying to their belief that I was qualified to do so, just in case. It never came up. But I have written letters of support for other Wiccan clergy, whose qualifications I was familiar with, who wanted to be registered in NYC.
In addition to this, in New York State, if the people getting married honestly believe that the officiant is qualified to marry them, then the wedding is legally binding even if the officiant is a fraud.
Rates: I don't charge. But I also don't do weddings for strangers.
