Wedding Ceremonies

WEDDING CELEBRANT/ OFFICIANT

Lisa-Marie Walker is a wedding celebrant/officiant. Like a wedding commissionaire, she has the authority to solemnize marriages according to the Province of Alberta.

Lisa does not book multiple weddings in one day, she books one ceremony/day, giving her full attention to the couple she is representing. Lisa is not bound by particular language, allowing for creative freedom to craft a unique ceremony that is just right for your wedding.

ARRANGE A MEETING

Please contact Lisa to arrange a meeting so we can 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.
