Services and Pricing
Wedding ceremonies come in a wide variety of styles. Some require more of my involvement than others - I am happy to be there to help with as much or as little as you want! Review the list below for a general outline of services and associated pricing. If you have something else in mind or any questions at all - get in touch and we can discuss!

Extra Services + Costs
What do I mean by 'extra services', and what determines the length of your ceremony?
A basic ceremony that includes my portion (customized for you), your vows, a ring exchange, and one or two small traditions (such as stepping on a glass or lighting a unity candle), will typically last 15-30 minutes. If you want to include additional custom elements that stretch the ceremony longer than that, we can discuss what that may cost.
In addition to the length of the ceremony itself, extra costs may be determined based on how long you need me to be at the venue location. For example, some couples request that I come for a rehearsal ceremony, or simply that I arrive early in preparation. This extra time can be discussed and baked into the total price.
In terms of location, the base costs listed above reflect ceremonies at locations within a certain limit (essentially across the GTA). I am happy to discuss traveling outside of the GTA for an additional cost.
Are you feeling anxious about writing your own vows? A special extra service that I can provide is to write your vows on your behalf. This would involve gathering extra information + sentiments from you to help me write the perfect vow(s). This is an extra cost that I can include in any wedding package.
