Marriage

Love is a beautiful gift 

and uniting that love for a lifetime is a sacred endeavor.

As a Licensed Marriage Commissioner it is a joy for me officiate your Wedding or Vow Renewal Ceremony as you celebrate your love and commitment for one another. 

I specialize in short notice bookings. If you have had your Marriage License a full 24 hours and want to get married tomorrow or this week, or within a month, I will try to accommodate you. On occasion I will book a few months in advance but this is not my preference.

There are some options for you to choose from. 

Basic - an uncomplicated simple civil service, perfect for those who favour a quiet coming together, or for those planning a destination wedding and wanting to avoid the hoopla required to be legally married in another countryIt is a succinct declaration and signing of your wish to be legally married. 💍$150.00

Ceremonial - This is a little longer service and includes some ceremonial aspects to it. It has a message woven through, and a lovely exchange of vows and rings and may include a sand ceremony or hand-fasting. It is more elaborate than the Basic service and usually includes guests and attendants. 💍$200.00

Renewal of Vows - can be an extremely meaningful experience for couples who simply want to reaffirm their commitment to one another. Some choose it as a means of celebration of a milestone  anniversary, or after a time of reconciled discord. Vow Renewal is a non-legal ceremony and thus does not require witnesses. 💍$150.00

 

Particulars that must be attended to prior to the wedding.

✼Purchase a Marriage License - at least one day prior to, but not more than three months prior to the wedding. Click here for a link to marriage license issuers. The license costs $60.00 and both parties must be present with two pieces of identification at time of purchase. If this is not your first wedding you must present your divorce certificate.

✼Book your Commissioner - I require a $50.00 non-refundable deposit to secure your date and time. Click here to send your e-transfer. (Balance to be e-transferred the morning of the ceremony).  Alternatively, and most often preferably, you may pay the full amount at this time. Because I may have more than one wedding to officiate that day, it is important to respect the time we agree upon. 

 

✼Send me the information I require to prepare the registration forms for your wedding.

After you are married I will present you with a Marriage Certificate.

✼You may use the certificate I give you to get your name changed on your Driver's license, and then use your renewed Driver's license photo ID to have the rest of your ID updated. 

✼In addition, if you wish, you may also order a government issued Marriage Certificate as legal proof of your marriage. Click here to order your official Marriage Certificate.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,

while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
