Serving London, Stratford, Oxford, Lambton and Middlesex Counties --Ontario, Canada
And Other Rites of Passage
The Service Ontario web site Getting Married In Ontario explains the procedure for getting a marriage licence. A wedding license is good for 90 days after it is issued (be sure to calculate back from your wedding date so you don’t apply too early). You may download a wedding license application or obtain one at a local municipal office or City Hall in Ontario (except a Township office). You will need to provide identification for both members of the couple and proof of divorce, if applicable, although only one person is required to bring the application to the municipal office. You can usually pick up the application and receive the license on the same day. There is no waiting period in Ontario so you could be married the same day as well. Cost may vary but is about $130.
Requirements for a Legal Marriage
We are officiants licensed by the Province of Ontario to provide marriage services. We have received training from and are sponsored by the Canadian Unitarian Council. For the purpose of performing a marriage ceremony, we are legally equivalent to a Minister or Priest, Justice of the Peace, Judge or Marriage Commissioner.
Lay Chaplains are not members of the clergy but we are happy to work with you to incorporate your own faith tradition into your ceremony, if you wish we can perform weddings anywhere in the Province of Ontario but we concentrate on London and region including Stratford, Oxford and Middlesex counties.
