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.

Absolutely Amazing!

Francesca is such a warm hearted person and she really brought that into our wedding ceremony. We could not be happier with how beautiful she made our whole experience. Even though we eloped and it was just the two of us with no guests, she still insisted that this day was our day and was anything but simple. We felt like the simple ceremony we signed up for was so beautifully turned into an amazing and elaborate wedding. We truly can’t thank you enough for your kind heartedness and for making our day so very special!

Delightful Experience with Francesca!

Me and my best friend got married to our high school sweethearts together in the Trillium Park. Francesca made everything so easy for us, and went above and beyond to accommodate us. She was the sweetest and kindest person and even though we chose the basic package, it was a lot of fun. Extremely satisfied with her service and highly recommend! Thank you Francesca ♥️

Amazing experience, extremely helpful in expedited marriage certificate!

We did an Elopement / Paperwork and am super happy we did! She is kind, personable, and professional and made the day special for the small ceremony we did. We also needed an expedited marriage certificate & her website makes it incredibly easy to follow to ensure it goes smoothly. Not only that, but her guidance and willingness to help throughout the process alleviated my stress. Extremely happy we had Francesca for our special day! Thanks!

Personal & Professional

Francesca was so delightful to work with for our elopement; even though it was short and sweet, she was personable throughout the whole process and made us feel so celebrated, even though we only got to be with her for a short time in person. We are so grateful for her time, and for all her guidance. Thank you so much!

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.
