Ontario Regulation 285/04 provides for the authorization of the Clerk to solemnize marriages with the authority of a licence in Ontario. The Clerk has chosen to delegate this authority to marriage commissioners who provide civil marriage solemnization services to couples. A "civil ceremony" is defined as one with no reference to God or a Supreme Being or having religious connotation to the ceremony. The Township of Huron-Kinloss currently has four commissioners who perform this service.
All bookings and payments for marriage commissioner services are administered through the Township of Huron-Kinloss. Cost of ceremony is $350. Booking is not considered final until payment is received. If cancelling, notice must be received a minimum of 30 days prior to date of wedding to receive a refund of $250.00
Our Marriage Commissioners are delighted to perform your wedding ceremony at the beach, in your backyard, in a park, or any reasonable location of your choice. Together with you, they will design a ceremony that will make your special day one to remember.
