This fee includes:
  • Officiating the Marriage Ceremony.

This is the perfect way to go if you are just looking for a low key and simple wedding, or are wanting to be legally married prior to your big celebration (be it here in Canada or abroad). We will chat via phone or email/text before your wedding, but we do not have a face-to face meeting or lengthy correspondence beforehand. Standard wedding vows are used, although you can absolutely read personal vows to each other within that standard ceremony. 



BOOKING MY SERVICES
deposit of $100 is due when you book me to perform your ceremony. This can be paid by way of an e-transfer to rdcountyweddings@yahoo.com or by mailing a cheque. The remainder is due one week prior to the wedding. If you  have to postpone your wedding, you will not lose this deposit. If you are having a wedding on very short notice, then the full amount will be payable immediately upon booking.


WEDDING REHEARSAL                                                          $150
We will rehearse and go through all of the details of the ceremony until you and the entire wedding party feel comfortable, confident and ready for your special day. This is a great way to iron out any wrinkles and prepare
for the unexpected so that your wedding flows really beautifully!     (Please note - a rehearsal is not mandatory)



RENEWAL OF VOWS / COMMITMENT CEREMONY          $275
This fee includes:
  • Pre - ceremony consultation - whether in person or via phone/email.

  • Performance of the vow renewal / commitment ceremony.    


TRAVEL CHARGES
For any of the above services, there may be travel charges depending on the distances involved. In general, weddings within Red Deer County will not involve travel fees, and weddings outside of the County will have a minimum

WEDDINGS AT OUR ACREAGE
For small wedding parties (a total of 20 people or less) you can get married at my house for no extra charge. The
ceremony and your photographs can all take place here. Prices for larger parties are available upon request, and
will vary depending upon the size of your wedding. For photos of our acreage please see the 'About Me' page.

RUSH REGISTRATION OF MARRIAGE                             $100
I will personally register your completed Registration of Marriage on the next business day (after your marriage ceremony) rather than mailing it to Vital Statistics as per usual. This will reduce the time before Vital Statistics can
issue your Marriage Certificate by about 2 weeks.
