Francesca was amazing. Her warm energy and genuine joy for our marriage was very special. She was really patient and thorough. Even though we did the simple package, she made it feel a lot more than that. We totally recommend her!

Such an amazing person!

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding officiant than Francesca. Her warm and engaging personality truly made our special day even more memorable. Her attention to detail and efficiency in handling all the paperwork ensured that everything ran smoothly. She constantly checked in with us to help expedite the process of obtaining the marriage certificate. Thanks to her prompt attention to detail, we received our marriage certificate in record time. Francesca not only made the entire process smooth and stress-free but also made doing the paperwork a memorable experience. We can't thank her enough for her outstanding professionalism.

Perfect Experience!

Francesca was amazing! We had a perfect little marriage licence signing ceremony. Francesca was super personable and made us feel very comfortable! Even though we were only signing the papers she made the experience very sentimental and special for us. We appreciated her attention to detail with us taking photos and doing a little ceremony at the coffee shop we chose. Her words were kind and thoughtfull! 100% would recommend!! :)


Francesca was AMAZING! She made doing our legal paperwork a fun, enjoyable and sentimental experience. She really is a beautiful soul. We brought our rings with us and she was kind enough to say a few words with us which made it that much more special. HIGHLY recommend her for any of your wedding officiant needs!


Francesca did an amazing job doing our legal paperwork and even took the time to do a small ceremony at the end as we wore our rings. She made the process enjoyable and special I would highly recommend her. Thank you Francesca


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.
