This package includes an initial consultation, an in-depth meeting, a virtual walk through, 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+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 15-30 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 6 months (currently the marriage office is very busy). Should you need the Marriage Certificate expedited for any reason I can personally guide you through the process. 

Parking Included

There will be no additional fees requested for parking.

Wonderful experience!

Francesca did a wonderful job planning and officiating our wedding ceremony (and she even did so with limited time to help us in a pinch!). She was so easy to work with and very personable. We were confident from the start that Francesca would be the perfect fit for us. Our ceremony was sweet, heartfelt and had moments of laughter - exactly like we wanted. Would highly recommend Francesca to friends looking for a professional and reliable officiant. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

So sweet and so personal!

Francesca was great from beginning to end! From our initial phone call up until the wedding day, she made the entire process so easy and the ceremony came together so seamlessly! Even though we hadn't met in person until the day of the wedding, she managed to create such a personal space for us and our guests. She had all of us laughing, crying and full of emotion. We were so so happy with her services and are so grateful that our paths crossed!

Lovely Love Party!

From my first emails with Francesca, I was greeted with a warm and fun vibe that extended to every aspect of the ceremony planning and execution. She carefully read all of our notes, incorporated special requests with enthusiasm (e.g., a land acknowledgement, ring warming ritual, and a personalized poem), and even checked in with us leading up to the big day. She really got to know us and our pup, and made everyone feel included in the ceremony. We couldn't have asked for a better person to guide us through the process. Francesca not only made the ceremony a warm and intimate experience; she also showcased who were are in a way that was authentic and unique to our love. Thanks so much for being a part of our love party!

A modern twist

From the first call when I heard her voice I knew she was the one who would be marrying us. I opened up very quickly with Francesca, she is sweet, caring and a loving individual who truly loves what she does. Thank you for our beautiful ceremony, we loved that it wasn’t traditional typical ceremony!

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.
