The Elopement Ceremony is a short civic-style or spiritual service performed along with the legalities in accordance with the Marriage Act of Ontario. A valid Ontario Marriage License is required for the legal marriage to take place.
With an elopement, you’re free to choose exactly who you want to be part of your intentional, intimate day, meaning that if you do want to include people, you’re only inviting those you want to have meaningful time with on your wedding day.

Often, with traditional weddings, you’re obligated to invite cousins, colleagues, old friends, parent’s bosses — it goes on and on until you’re drowning in an invitation list 300 people deep.
With elopements, you’re dwindling down the obligations, the pressures, and the invite list, meaning you’re only inviting exactly who you want to spend intentional time with on your epic day — even if that means just bringing your dog along.
The Elopement is also very popular and designed for those who are perhaps traveling to a wedding destination to celebrate their wedding with friends and family and would like the legal matters cared for in Canada, without the hassle of language translation, possible blood testing, giving them the assurance they actually are married. All that’s required is a valid Ontario Marriage License, the couple (of course), and two legal aged witnesses along with your wedding officiant. Simple, Quick and Done! Approx. 10 - 15 min. long.
Travel expense: $.60/km over 100 km round trip.
