ARRANGE A MEETING

Please contact Lisa to check your date’s availability and arrange a meeting to discuss your ceremony. If we decide we are a good fit, we will sign a contract, you will put down a deposit and I will book your date. The journey begins!

A deposit of $150 is required to secure your wedding date and time; the remainder is due one week before the commencement of the Marriage Ceremony. Every effort is made to accommodate last minute ceremonies. All ceremonies are booked by appointment only.

OBTAINING A MARRIAGE LICENCE

Alberta marriage Licences are available from any registry agent in Alberta. You must give me, the officiant, your marriage licence prior to the ceremony. I am responsible for mailing it after the ceremony is completed. You may go to this website for further information and to order a marriage certificate post wedding.
