What do we need for you to marry us?
You must obtain your marriage license from your local city hall AND have two witnesses of legal age (19years) attend your ceremony.
Can we have someone who loves us perform our ceremony and it still be registered legally?
Absolutely! You may have anyone you want speak and perform your ceremony for you. Jacqueline will officiate the paperwork so your marriage is legally binding with the Registrar General of Canada in the province of Ontario.
How do we secure our date?
Be sure to email Jacqueline for availability and pricing. A non refundable deposit* must be made to secure Jacqueline's time with you. Final and full payment must be made 30 days prior to your ceremony.
