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 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 10-12 weeks. Should you need the Marriage Certificate expedited for any reason I can personally guide you through the process.

She really is amazing!

We are so grateful that Francesca officiated our wedding ceremony. She was very easy to work with - warm, thoughtful, calm, knowledgeable, professional to name a few. She walked us through the process upfront and she very quickly put our minds at ease that we were entrusting the right person with such an important role. The ceremony was perfect and far exceeded our expectations. We will remember and cherish the experience forever. With love, K&S xo

Hands down the best!

Francesca is a gem! Within minutes of our phone consult we knew we had found our perfect officiant. She listens and really tries to get to know her clients so that she can do her job in the best possible way. She presented us beautifully, keeping it lighthearted, fun and meaningful. Our friends and family had so many wonderful things to say about our ceremony. We couldn’t recommend Francesca more!

An intimate, personal and fun experience!

We appreciate the ceremony Francesca put together for us SO much. She understood we were looking for something simple, but personal, something us and our guests would find funny and romantic. She blew us all away! Everyone walked away feeling so grateful for the moment she had created. It was beautiful how she turned her insight into our relationship into a story our guests would all understand and appreciate. She incorporate fun bits about the two of us, loving bits about our culture and a created a moment we won't ever forget. Plus, Francesca was as excited as we were, and made the process fun and exciting. Her outfit was also so perfect for our party!

Triple the bond!!

My heart bursts with joy thinking about how special our ceremony was. From the first time I met Francesca, I knew I wanted her to officiate our ceremony! Her energy lights up any room and she made our day beyond special, I couldn’t imagine it without her presence!! She took the time to include details in her speech that related only to us! Her blessing our love, home, and our little triplets who are on the way, brought tears of joy to the room and created the most heart memories that will last a lifetime for us and our families.

She’s just that amazing!

Thank you again Francesca for the most memorable day!

Love, your new triplet crew! ❤️❤️❤️

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.
