Custom Wedding Ceremonies
We Tell Your Story
Couples planning a ceremony often need to work within a set budget, but also have dreams of what their ideal wedding will entail—and this is what Custom Wedding Ceremonies will help to create.
Your ceremony is carefully crafted and polished with the personal vows, and selected elements such as special readings, that will reflect you and tell your story.
From Beaches to Ballrooms
I have united hundreds of couples in unique marriage ceremonies in many different circumstances and venues.
My fees for ceremonies depend on the scope and personalization that you require. It is important to note that all wedding ceremonies, whether simple or elaborate, take considerable time and effort during preparation. Once I know what your wedding wishes and plans are, this will help pinpoint the ceremony that will best match your needs and budget. My fees are determined by the complexity or amount of liaison needed to meet your arrangements, including the elements you’d like to incorporate.
Complex or Simple Weddings
Some couples require a high level of involvement with family or in multiple languages. You may need complex arrangements or more behind-the-scenes consultations—we will discuss what is involved beforehand so that time is scheduled for this.
The Officiant Consultancy Service
My unique custom-designed ceremonies include my presence at your wedding rehearsal. I will be happy to discuss with you the option that works best with your ideas and budget.
My wedding ceremony fees compare very well with other officiant’s rates in the Greater Toronto Area—even though CWC offers such a personalized and detailed service. I provide written drafts of the ceremony, up to a maximum of three. Your changes and feedback are then taken into account and the ceremony is polished to meet the most exacting requirements.
A contract and a 50 percent deposit are needed to reserve your date and time.
- A personal consultation with you
- A unique, custom-crafted ceremony, created in close collaboration with you
- A rehearsal if requested
- Conducting the ceremony
- Taking care of the legalities, including filing the Marriage Licence
Note: Where travel and accommodation are required, there will be additional fees.
Book the Time and Date of Your Ceremony
Please book as soon as you have the venue and the date to be sure of the time of your choice—a year is not too far in advance in some popular seasons or months for weddings. However, I am also happy to step in with short notice, if I can, so please ask.
P.S. It helps if you have some flexibility about the actual time of the ceremony, especially if you are getting married in peak wedding season between May and October or on any long weekend.
Your ceremony is the centerpiece of your wedding and therefore merits special attention to make it the heart of your day.
