Off-Site Weddings

All our Marriage Officiants are licenced to perform wedding ceremonies by the Registrar General of the Province of Ontario. Some of our Officiants are also bilingual in English and French/Spanish/Portugese/ Hungarian/Chinese.

To book our services, we require the following:

1. The date of ceremony
2. The time of ceremony
3. The location of ceremony

The fee varies depending on your wedding venue. Please contact our office for a fee quote. This office will issue you a receipt after the deposit has been received and then an Officiant will be assigned to you. We try to accommodate "special" requests.

Approximately one month before the ceremony, you, your fiancé(e) and your Officiant will get together to plan your ceremony. The Officiant will also ask to see your marriage licence at this meeting. The balance (plus travel if applicable) is due to the Officiant at this time.

On the Wedding Day
The Officiant will arrive approximately 20 minutes before the ceremony. Please make sure your marriage ceremony starts on time as the presence of your Officiant will very likely be required elsewhere at a later hour. The Couple must present the marriage licence and envelope to the Officiant before the proceedings.

After the ceremony, you will be presented with the "Record of Solemnization of Marriage" documenting your marriage. The Officiant will immediately mail your marriage licence to the Office of the Registrar General in Thunder Bay for registration.

Approximately 8-12 weeks following your wedding date, you may wish to apply for a formal Certificate of Marriage from the Registrar General of Ontario . The application form and fee schedule were included with the information you received when you purchased your marriage licence. If you do not have the Marriage Certificate Application Form, you may pick it up at any marriage licence office or from the Toronto Office of the Registrar General at 777 Bay Street/College Street (Tel: 416.325.8305).

Best wishes on your forthcoming marriage.
