This package is designed for events under 10 people and includes an initial consultation, a meeting before the ceremony, the ceremony and legal paperwork.

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 retainer fee +hst is 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. 

Meeting Prior to Ceremony

Prior to your wedding date we will set up a quick meeting to discuss what will be included in your ceremony. This meeting is to ensure that your experience is personalized and heartfelt!  

Ceremony

On the day of the wedding I will arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled time and meet you at our predetermined location on the premises. Be ready for magic!

Note: To avoid any 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.

Amazing! And so personal

Francesca is so kind and compassionate. As a very nervous bride she made the entire process less stressful. She was very careful in the way she handled delicate family issues during the ceremony and we couldn’t be happier with what we received.
Thanks so much Francesca ❤️❤️❤️

The best you could ever hope for or want!!

When I saw all of Francesca's 5-star reviews I thought it was impossible that anyone could have so many. Now that she's officiated my wedding I'm not in the least bit surprised!

Francesca was WONDERFUL. We planned our wedding very quickly (like... in 4 days) and Francesca not only helped to support us through the insanity of pulling everything together, but she stayed calm and helped US feel calm and happy. Her ceremony was PERFECT. We wanted something short and sweet, but meaningful, and she created something that was a great fit for my partner and I.

Francesca helped me to stop and take time to really celebrate the day and the commitment, when it would have been so easy to get lost in the stress of pulling it together. A beautiful person and a wonderful officiant.

I truly cannot recommend her enough. 12/10!!

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.
