Ceremony, Initial Consult, Paperwork & Virtual Walk Through.
The contract & payment are required to secure your spot. The contract & invoice will be sent to you once we have had our initial conversation & agreed to proceed.
Details of What is Included.
Following our initial chat to make sure we are a good fit, you'll be sent the official wedding contract. Once the Wedding Contract is completed and your $250 retainer fee received your date is secured.
About a month before your wedding date we will set up a meeting to discuss your vision for the wedding and the ceremony specifics- for example, are you writing your own vows, special additions, such as hand fasting, dove release, 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 to love & marriage or add bits from your family's cultures or religious background. This is about creating the ceremony to make your event as magical or simple as you'd like!
About a week before your wedding we will do a walk through to make sure the vows are to your liking and logistics in place so the wedding events will flow as smooth as possible. We will follow all government rules regarding Covid-19.
On the day of the wedding I will arrive 15min before the scheduled time and meet you at our pre-determined location on the premises.
NOTE: 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. Marriage Licenses are only valid for 90 days for the date of application. At present the Ministry is asking that only one of the partners apply for the license in person.
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 6-8 weeks. Should you need the Marriage Certificate expedited for any reason I can personally guide you through the process.
You are also welcome to reach out anytime for questions or concerns about anything related to your special day. If I can help you, it would be an honour and a privilege to support you.
Francesca is a ray of sunshine amidst these covid laden days. She officiated our 26th (supposed to be 25th, thanks covid lol) vow renewal over the holidays. It was absolutely magical! She was professional, sincere, heartfelt and personal with a splash of humour and playfulness. Our ceremony and experience with Francesca far surpassed our expectations. We will forever be grateful for Francesca and the amazing celebration she created for us and she will always hold a special place in our hearts for it.
Kim & Jeff to be there for you was absolutely a special moment in my life! As I mentioned in the ceremony, it gave us one more year to celebrate you! You certainly are role ,models for all of us! Let's not forget how awesome you looked Kim. You rocked that same dress 26 years later! Love Ya Both. xo
We only had 5 weeks to plan our wedding and because of COVID we were facing a lot of hurdles. We contacted Francesca two weeks before our wedding and even though she already had a full plate she took us on.
Not only did we have a sweet and simple ceremony but she incorporated my daughter into the wedding and made her feel so special. Francesca was a great support during this whole process and we really hope to keep in contact. Her energy is super uplifting and she truly made our ceremony. Everyone adored her :)
Jessica, the moment I answered the phone I knew we were meant to connect. Including your daughter in the ceremony was an absolute delight. She is the cutest & kindest little soul. I wish you all a lifetime of happiness!
We had a great experience with Francesca. Everything was easy and we felt well taken care of!
I am so happy to have met you & support you in this ,milestone moment of your lives!
Francesca was a joy to work with. Made the process so easy and guided us through every part. We were so confident by the time we waited at/ walked down the aisle. Such a supportive presence in our journey. Thank you, Fancesca!
Awww to support you on your journey was an honour! You were all such a joy & love seeing the continued photos of Clementine. I wish your lives together to be as magnificent as the wedding day.
We knew from the first interaction with Francesca that she was the one to officiate our wedding. She was so attentive and really took the time to get to know us and our story. This made for the most lovely ceremony, which all our friends and family loved and complimented. In addition to officiating, she went above and beyond... No thanks to the current situation (the c word), we had a few last minute bumps in our original plan and Francesca literally saved the day by introducing us to some people who kindly helped us out. In the end, everything was perfect and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We are over the moon with how it all panned out and would choose Francesca over and over again.
I felt that instant connection as much as you did! I love all the overlaps and synchronicities we have. I am so happy to have been able to 'save the day'. I absolutely loved your attitude throughout all the c-word hiccups you were faced. And when you get to have that big party to celebrate, I'd love to meet you whereever in the world it happens. Hugs & So Much Love!
