This is the once-in-a-lifetime wedding that you have been dreaming of all your life. All your family and friends will be there to see you get married. You want friends to read poetry, family to participate in a cultural ritual, a sand or handfasting ceremony.
This small intimate ceremony with close family and friends (20 guests or fewer) is a good choice if you plan a simple wedding. You are welcome to customize your vows. Meet in the park, a hotel lobby, or on a beach or mountain top.
This prewritten wedding fulfills the legal requirement with an informal ceremony. Get married in the park, a hotel lobby, or my front yard garden.
Do you want to reaffirm your love for each other and renew your promise? Invite guests that were not able to attend your wedding. Or, share your love for each other with your children. Perhaps your first wedding wasn't the traditional ceremony you wanted. Maybe it's time to say again you will love, honour and cherish each other forever.
Renew those Vows in the park, a hotel lobby, a front yard garden, or a restaurant.
The couple must have a valid British Columbia Marriage Licence.
Phone me to find out where to apply.
By law, you must have two witnesses of legal age who both understand English.
I can not preform the marriage if anyone in the wedding party is intoxicated, or mentally impaired.
After the happy couple and their witnesses complete their portion of the Marriage Licence I will handle all the paperwork required for registering your marriage with the Provincial Government Ministry of Vital Statistics. Your official Marriage Certificate should arrive in 6 - 8 weeks.
Before the ceremony booking can be confirmed, the couple must complete the questionnaire and return it along with a current picture of both of you together, sign a contract and a non-refundable retainer equal to 50% of the wedding fee. If I have not received 100% of your payment and the signed contract a minimum of four weeks before the proposed wedding date, any assumed agreement will be null and void, and the couple may seek another officiant.
I respect all people regardless of their gender preference, race, background, ethnicity, nationality, or philosophy.
Is there a cultural element you want to have in your wedding? A sand ceremony? Ring Warming?
Do you have questions that have not been answered? Please don't keep them to yourself. Let me know—for example, questions about Vow Renewal.
Each couple is entitled to a free 40-minute consultation in person or by Zoom. We love to meet our happy bride and groom (bride and bride, or groom and groom), so feel free to set up a time to chat to ensure I'm the right Celebrant for you.
