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

Amazing officiant!

I highly recommend Francesca as a wedding officiant. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her on our wedding - she made the entire process seamless and stress-free! What I really enjoyed was the way she intentionally got to know us as a couple so that the ceremony could be personalized to us and our personalities. Several family members and friends came up to us afterwards and commented on how great our ceremony and officiant was. Francesca has such positive light and energy around her and I am so glad we went with her on our big day.

Thank you Francesca!

I’m a wedding photographer & met Francesca through the industry. She was so warm + kind and that’s exactly who we wanted for our own wedding! Having Francesca at our wedding was like having a friend there (and that’s exactly what she became!). She hung out with us all evening & we all loved having her there. This is on top of having the most amazing ceremony where she made it personal, meaningful and comfortable for us. Being around Francesca is being at ease.
If you have an opportunity to book her for your own wedding, you are lucky beyond words!

Officiant of our dreams!

Francesca was an absolute gem to work with! We clicked from the very beginning and she just understood the exact type of ceremony we desired. It felt like she knew my partner and I after just one conversation. She really guides you through the paperwork process as well, which definitely helps. Our guests were all raving about how unique and natural her approach was. Do not hesitate to book her! Eternally grateful for you officiating our ceremony Xx C & E

Wonderful experience

Francesca was a joy to have as the officiant of our Wedding! Throughout the entire process, we knew she had things totally under control and we could rest easy, with no worries about the ceremony. After our first conversation with her, we felt cared for and supported. We appreciated her regular checks-in to make sure that things were running smoothly as the ceremony grew and developed. The ceremony itself was beautiful, with joyful moments, personal touches and a bit of laughter. She will help you through the marriage ceremony and has a huge amount of heart, which shows through her words.

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.
