Ken your officiant is a duly ordained and a registered licenced member of the clergy in Ontario (Licence No. 63698) and authorized to perform religious and other ceremonies here in Ontario.
Ken has officiated many types of wedding over the years and as he says, "IT's YOUR WEDDING so IT'S YOUR WAY." All ceremonies are custom crafted for you and you can select from one of the standard ceremonies and various min-ceremonies which are forwarded to you once you contact us about our services. However, you can select from one of the standard versions without medication should you wish. If you wish you can also provide poems, readings or other content to be included in the ceremony you wish to use. It can be as long or a short as you wish.
We specialize in various ceremonies such as:
Civil, Spiritual, Non-denominational, Religious, Inter-faith, Themed Weddings and Same Sex Marriages
Simple Signing Ceremonies
For those couples who wish to have a simple ceremony with their witnesses without the expense of a full wedding, receiption, etc.
Also for those who wish to ensure their DESITNATION wedding is legal, both pre-DESITNATION and post-DESTINATION wedding.
For pre-wedding or post weddings officiated by clergy from outside the province who are not licenced to solemnize marriages in Ontario
For couples who have not received a marriage licence in time for their wedding due to delay in getting documentation together
such as proof of divorce, etc. I a couple is divorce outside of Canada, they must apply to the Registrar General of Ontario for
permission to obtain a marriage licence. If a hall or venue is booked, deposits made etc. which would be lost if the wedding date was
changed, then we offer this service (at no cost) if we officiate the wedding on the planned date and make it legal once the marriage
licence is obtained.
