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.
Life has a funny way of showing what's important in life. My husband and I proceeded with a court marriage due to restrictions. As we embarked on this journey, the universe brought us Francesca. My first call with her was perfect, we connected instantly and I knew she was the perfect woman to officiate our civil ceremony. She took the time out to get to know us and our family history. She incorporated our beliefs, connections and family into our ceremony. Overall, she's a wonderful person and an amazing officiant. I highly recommend Francesca!
Thank you for your kind words, enthusiasm and most importantly your personal connection.
It was such a joy to get to know more about you & your family. I had so much fun officiating your wedding! It felt so nice to laugh like that! We were so blessed that the weather held off so hundreds of people could watch online while we still had our shoes on! There was something so sweet about running in the rain after the ceremony! Hugs & cheers to a continued friendship!
Francesca made our covid wedding extra special. She brightened up our day and made it move smoothly, her positive energy was felt by everyone in the room and we couldn’t imagine our day without her presence. We highly recommend Francesca to be a part of anyone’s special day!!
Working with you was such a delight! It was such an honour to be a part of your wedding. Your inner beauty shone in our conversations, your outer beauty was a bonus. Keep spreading your love & light. You are a beautiful couple. I am enjoying our continued connection!
Francesca has a very warm and sweet personality. She was very kind, helpful and responsive before, during, and after our ceremony. She made our special day feel intimate with her well worded script that included anecdotes from our journey.
Francesca was an absolute pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her to officiate your big day. Special shoutout to Zoya, Francesca’s furry baby for being the flower girl.
