City Hall marriage ceremony

I need information on what exactly happens during a City Hall wedding. Google is full of useful tips on when, where, who to bring, how to buy a marriage license etc. but I need the actual ceremony.

Does the judge/clerk/official speak? Read from the bible or some kind of legal document? Are witnesses asked to sign during the ceremony or after? When would the bride and groom exchange vows? Etc.

This wedding would be taking place in California, if that makes a difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
