This antique style Gay Marriage Certificate can be used for two men, two male-identifying people, or two people who just like wearing suits.
There are two figures in suits, but this is a gender-neutral, faith/spirituality/religion-neutral wedding certificate! (I have the same-sex wedding certificate for females, over here. Okay, technically, some people consider angels to be a religious symbol, but to me, they represent those throughout history who have done the work that helped get us where we are today. I made this same-sex blank marriage license with love for the LGBTQAI+ community by digitally collaging together gorgeous vintage ephemera. I want everyone to have access to the intricate gorgeousness of vintage marriage certificates, regardless of gender identity, belief system, or any other category that societies have developed norms about. I’m constantly adding more items to my shop, and hope to eventually represent everybody. If you like the style of something you see, but don’t see yourself represented in the life cycle or wedding artwork so far, feel free to contact me about a custom commission!

This marriage certificate features some unique extras:
THE TOP SECTION IS A FAMILY REGISTER, SO THIS IS A DOUBLE FAMILY HEIRLOOM!
Each side is presided over by an angelic figure on a night sky backdrop with stars and moons. An antique love poem surrounds a depiction of a wedding ceremony, and beneath that image, there is a box where you can write in a quote or poem you both love, or your vows to each other. There are four portrait cameo areas where you can tape or glue on photos of ancestors, or heroes, or the two people getting married, or the parents of the new spouses. If you want to be extra creative, you could also put in special images from your love story! The face of an author you both love, a map of the cities you’re from, concert tickets, or clippings from postcards you collected while traveling together. This is one of the most customizable wedding certificates I’ve seen, with all sorts of room for creativity and personalization. On either side is a family register, where you can record names, births, and marriages of loved ones over the years. Some people even frame these combined marriage certificates and family record documents without glass so they can add to it easily, as new occasions arise.
MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE SECTION
Room for two witnesses.
An area for the details of two people getting married. This is a gender-neutral wedding vow certificate, so instead of the usual Mr. or Ms. pre-filled for you, there is an ornate cursive M. You can choose to leave it like that, or add an r or s after the M by your names. Whatever you like!
MARRIAGE CEREMONY SECTION
A space at the bottom to write in the words of the marriage ceremony or your wedding vows to each other.
You can also invite more witnesses to sign. It’s a great chance to let the whole wedding party (or all family members in attendance) take part in the occasion!
