Welcome to the Toronto Civic Wedding Chambers. Marriages are performed at Toronto City Hall Wedding Chambers by appointment only. Please arrange your appointment in advance.
Our Marriage Officiants are licenced to perform marriage ceremonies by the Registrar General of the Province of Ontario.
The fee is $265.00 ($234.51 + $30.49 HST), which includes the Marriage Officiant and chambers for a half hour.
For weddings from Monday to Thursday, we require a deposit of $125.00 at the time of the booking; your balance of $140.00 is due on your wedding day. The deposit is non-refundable, however, if notified within 48 business hours in advance, you can make one change to the date and time of your booking.
For weddings on Fridays and Saturdays, we require the full fee at the time of the booking. No refunds are issued. One change can be made to the date and time of your booking if requested 10 business days prior to the day of the wedding..
On Your Wedding Day
You are required to bring with you:
1. A valid marriage licence
2. Two witnesses
The new chamber seats 15 people and there is standing room for approximately 15 others. The couple and two witnesses will be standing during the ceremony. Friends and family are welcome!
Ceremonies are performed every half hour. We ask you to arrive at the Chambers fifteen minutes early. Parties who arrive late will be accommodated at our discretion.
Please feel free to expand your vows or include special readings in your ceremony.
Pictures and/or video may be taken during the ceremony. Pictures may also be taken in the first floor lobby of City Hall, in Nathan Phillips Square or at the Osgoode Hall Gardens (located West of City Hall).
Professional photographic services are available from Rapid Photo in the Sheraton Centre. Please call them directly at 416-368-3888, or email them at email@example.com, for specially priced City Hall Wedding Packages.
Fresh flower arrangements inside the Wedding Chamber are provided by Ginkgo Floral Design. Bridal bouquets may be ordered from them at your discretion, at 416-640-1209. You can browse their website at ginkgofloraldesign.com.
Directly following the ceremony, you will receive a "Record of Solemnization of Marriage" from the Officiant. Your licence will be mailed immediately to the Office of the Registrar General in Thunder Bay for registration.
Approximately 8 weeks after your ceremony, you may wish to apply for a formal Certificate of Marriage from the Registrar General of Ontario, located in Thunder Bay. The application form and fee schedule were included with the information you received when you purchased your marriage licence. If you do not have the Marriage Certificate Application Form, you may pick one up from any marriage licence office or from the Toronto Office of the Registrar General at 47 Sheppard Ave. E., 4th floor (Tel: 416.325.8305). Alternatively, you may apply online at serviceontario.ca.
Best wishes on your forthcoming marriage.
