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.
I loved loved loved working with Francesca. It was so easy to work together - her energy was so positive and she was so easygoing, it really added to our big day. The vows she wrote for us were beautiful and lighthearted, they really reflected who we are as a couple. A total five-star experience.
You two made writing the vows so much fun! I am so happy to hear I was a contribution to your special day!
Francesca is such an amazing human being- the calmness and peace she brought to our mid-covid elopement was so refreshing from an otherwise crazy time in the world. She made our day very special and memorable- 11/10 Recommend!

Francesca’s service is amazing. She is very friendly and amazing human being. She performed the ceremony beautifully. I highly recommend her.
You were such a beautiful oouple and so lovely to deal with all around. May you have a lifetime of happiness!
Francesca made the experience of getting married during COVID as stress-free and wonderful as possible. While we didn't have all the bells and whistles that came with a traditional wedding ceremony, we felt that she gave us a personalized experience, spoke beautifully, and treated us as if our day was just as special, even without most of our family & friends in attendance.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to get married-- she is awesome!
Cristina it was such a great pleasure to officiate your wedding! Brought me great joy on the last day of 2020! Your love for each other makes up for the lack of bells and whistles. However, you will have that day to look forward to as well!
My partner and I decided last minute to elope at the end of 2020. Francesca was so supportive and walked us through every step of the journey, not to mention her beautiful personalized ceremony! Everything was absolutely perfect, and so much less stressful than I’d imagined. I would highly recommend her!
Emily it was so wonderful to be a part of your beautiful porch wedding! The smiles from your baby girl made the experience even that more joyous!
