Initial Consultation

We will have a first meeting to make sure we are a good fit and after that, you'll be sent the official wedding contract. Once the wedding contract is completed and your $250+hst retainer fee received your date is secured. The contract and payment are required to secure your spot. The contract and invoice will be sent to you once we have had our initial conversation and agreed to proceed. 

In-Depth Vision Meeting

A month before the ceremony, we will set up a virtual meeting for me to learn about your love story, your vision for the wedding and the ceremony specifics  For example: Are you writing your own vows? Would you like any special additions, such as hand fasting, dove release or family/religious traditions? Do you have a special poem or quotes you would like to add? This meeting is to ensure that your ceremony flows eloquently, is personalized and heartfelt! As I am a clergy with CIMM, Metaphysical Minister, we can speak about love and marriage or add bits from your family's cultures or religious background. This is all about make your event as magical or simple as you'd like!

Virtual Walk Through

About a week before your wedding we will do a walk through to make sure the vows are to your liking and logistics in are place so the wedding events will flow as smooth as possible. 

Ceremony

On the day of the wedding I will arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time and meet you at our pre-determined location on the premises. Be ready for magic!

Note: To avoid last minute inconveniences, please ensure you bring your own pens, the rings, the Marriage License in the Government Envelope and any other ceremonial materials/props you may need. 

Paperwork

Following the ceremony, we will complete the necessary paperwork with your witnesses and I will submit your completed license to the Marriage Office within 48 hours. You can apply for your Marriage Certificate online anytime after the wedding and will receive it within 10-12 weeks. Should you need the Marriage Certificate expedited for any reason I can personally guide you through the process.

Absolute perfection.

Francesca, you helped make our day special. The ceremony was absolutely perfect because it reflected Craig and I so well.

Immediately following the ceremony I was asked how you came to us, because everyone loved the ceremony. It was fun loving but also intimate and meaningful.

Thank you for helping us start this new chapter in such a perfect way!

A Perfect Gift

Thank you Francesca!!! you made our special moment even more special. You guided us from the first moment and gave us the tools and confidence to prepare in the right way. Francesca was kind and on point, took the right amount of ingredients to customize her presentation to describe us. She is respectful, insightful and knows how to navigate. She is charming and made it all come together with ease. thank you so very much for making the ceremony about us but allowed the guest to be engaged. We appreciated every moment. Thank you Selma and Simon.

Conner & Francesco
Intimate & Personal

Francesca officiated our wedding and was the perfect addition to our day. From the first conversation she made sure that we felt confident that our ceremony would reflect us as a couple, the kind of energy we were looking and aligned to the event we were hosting. Francesca created a ceremony that felt modern and intimate, so much so that our guests continue to tell us how much they enjoyed it (weeks later). Francesca ensured that we were on the same page about vows, any sensitive or important topics, dress code and timing weeks before the wedding so the day of went as smoothly as could be. We would highly recommend Francesca as she was the most natural addition to our day. What more can you ask for?

Wonderful Experience

Francesca was such a fantastic officiant and very helpful throughout the entire process. My husband and I have a 6 month old baby, and she was so great making sure to include him in the ceremony, and making such an enjoyable experience for us both. We would highly recommend working with Francesca.

Beautiful ceremony and incredible experience

Francesca was a wonder to work with. We wanted different, nothing too romantic and cheesy, definitely not religious and something artistic but short and sweet. Basically a pile of non traditional. We wanted to include our kids and definitely wanted it under 30 min. And Francesca killed it. She was so organized and easy to work with. She was detail oriented and just made it so smooth.

On the day of the ceremony she came in the best outfit, and honestly delivered above and beyond anything we could have hoped for.
We could not be more happy with everything and would absolutely recommend her services.

FAQs

You are welcome to reach out anytime for questions or concerns about anything related to your special day at no extra cost. If I can help you, it would be an honour and a privilege to support you.

1. You can pick the licence up from any City Hall in Ontario within 90 days of the ceremony. The newest policy is to make an appointment before you go in. Only one applicant needs to go, and must have the partner's original pieces of ID and signatures on the form.

2. Fill in the form before you go to City Hall.

3. You will need to bring 2 pieces of government-issued identification for each person getting married. One piece of identification must include your photo. These are the documents that are permitted:

- Government-issued birth certificate, including any change of name certificates.

- Valid passport.

- Record of immigrant landing.

- Canadian Citizenship Card.

- Valid Driver’s Licence.

- Valid Ontario Photo Card.

- Certificate of Divorce.


You can go online to apply for your marriage certificate the day of your wedding onwards. I always suggest getting the long (full copy of the license) and short (certificate) forms because you never know when you might need them. Currently it can take up to 12 weeks to receive the certificate, so you would not want to be left waiting if you needed it.

Expediting a marriage certificate is possible, however, the processing time can vary depending upon your needs and the happening at the marriage office. I am more than happy to support you through these steps if you need. I have clients with medical emergencies and immigration needs receive their certificate within 2-3 weeks. If there is an urgent need, we will do all we can to speed up the process.

It is so important to ensure that your wedding officiant is actually registered with the Ministry of Ontario. Here is a link to the government website where you can find my official registration.

Being registered with a Ministry as a reverend, clergy or a chaplain does not guarantee that the person is registered with the province. My personal designation is a Minister with the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry (CIMM) whose head office is in British Columbia, but I am only registered in Ontario. However, I can obtain a temporary license to perform a wedding in other provinces.
