Ceremonies are available by appointment only. Although every effort is made to accommodate last-minute requests, there can be situations in which demand regrettably exceeds availability.

ANY booked civil marriage appointment can be cancelled, up to and including the day of the ceremony. All cancellations are subject to a non-refundable $100 fee. Marriage licence fees are non-refundable.
