Ceremony, Initial Consult, Paperwork & Virtual Walk Through.
A $200 retainer fee is non-refundable & required to secure your event date.
Details of What is Included.
Following our initial chat to make sure we are a good fit, you'll be sent the official wedding contract. Once the Wedding Contract is completed and your $200 retainer fee received your date is secured.
A couple months before your wedding date we will set up a meeting to discuss your vision for the wedding and the ceremony specifics- for example, are you writing your own vows, special additions, such as hand fasting, dove release, family/religious traditions, do you have a special poem or quotes you would like to add? This meeting is to ensure that your ceremony flows eloquently, is personalized and heartfelt! As I am a clergy with CIMM, Metaphysical Minister, we can speak to love & marriage or add bits from your family's cultures or religious background. This is about creating the ceremony to make your event as magical or simple as you'd like!
A month before your wedding the $300 balance for the Ceremony is due.
About a week before your wedding we will do a walk through to make sure the vows are to your liking and logistics in place so the wedding events will flow as smooth as possible. We will follow all government rules regarding Covid-19.
On the day of the wedding I will arrive 15min before the scheduled time and meet you at our pre-determined location on the premises.
NOTE: Please ensure you bring your own pens, the rings, the Marriage License in the Government Envelope and any other ceremonial materials/props you may need. Marriage Licenses are only valid for 90 days for the date of application. At present the Ministry is asking that only one of the partners apply for the license in person.
Following the Ceremony, we will complete the necessary paperwork with your witnesses and I will submit your completed license to the Marriage Office within 48 hours. You can apply for your Marriage Certificate online anytime after the wedding and will receive it within 6-8 weeks. Should you need the Marriage Certificate expedited for any reason I can personally guide you through the process.
You are also welcome to reach out anytime for questions or concerns about anything related to your special day. If I can help you, it would be an honour and a privilege to support you.
My wife and I needed to be married quickly, before she left for her home country for an emergency. Francesca understood this urgency and was so accommodating throughout, making sure our wedding was as beautiful as can be despite the time limit. I felt she was as invested in our love and that’s exactly how it should be! 10/10
My husband and I had the absolute pleasure working with Francesca as she was our wedding officiant. Francesca is so personable, professional and has such great energy! She took time to learn about who my husband and I are as a couple, how we envisioned our ceremony to be and ensured it was truly unique to us. Francesca was a great resource in helping us navigate the behind the scenes logistics such as how/where to apply for a marriage certificate (something my husband and I did not even think of hahaha).
One of my favourite memories of the day was how fluid Francesca was in delivering the ceremony as my husband and I’s 2yo son was front and centre with all the energy a 2yo has. She did not miss a beat and it was so incredibly special to have our little guy standing up with us.
Kim your family was my absolute pleasure to work with! You made everything easy, yet full of love & gratitude. Your little one certainly did add so much joy to the whole experience. Two of my favourite moments were when he saw you & ran up to you. That hug & the smile on his face!!!! But that kilt, talk about cuteness overload!!! I cannot wait to meet up with you again at a later time so I can give you all a giant hug!
We can’t even put into words how amazing Francesca is. She put together such a thoughtful ceremony that fit the venue and our style. She was able to engage the guests and let us have fun with our ceremony and we are so thankful. Cannot recommend Francesca enough!!! Amazing experience
Brooke I really appreciate your kind words! I am so happy to hear that everything suited you. I am so grateful you chose me & I look forward to our paths crossing again. Giant Hugs!
What do I say about Francesca....
Words almost can't describe how amazing she made our day. She was the PERFECT fit for us. She's open and free, the kind of spirit we needed to reflect our love for one another. And from that day forward I hope to remain friends, she is THAT special to me.
You are absolutely fabulous! I adored everything about our connection - soul sisters from day one & being there for you & your adorabel man was an honour! We are forever friends, you are THAT special to me!
Francesca was absolutely amazing. She was there for us right from the start and helped us to customize the most perfect ceremony I ever could’ve imagined. Her voice is so perfect and calming and she is so welcoming she practically feels like family. Francesca you were incredible and Brady and I felt so lucky to have you standing up there with us on our special day. We cannot thank you enough. The ceremony was perfect. Beyond words. Highly recommend.
Laura & Brady, what can I say about you two!!! You have a zest for life that is not possible to capture in words! Fun, vibrant, pure, ambitious... you are the dream couple! So thrilled I could be a part of this magical day!
