Civil Marriage pricing options
The fee for a civil marriage ceremony is $300 including GST and payable by cash or e-transfer. Deposit of $100 to be paid at time of booking (some exceptions my apply). Additional costs will apply as follows:

  • $75 if required to be at the wedding rehearsal;
  • Travel outside of city limits (depending on distance);
  • If there is a delay in the ceremony by more than 20 minutes, an additional charge of $100 will be applied.

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. To avoid disappointment, especially if you are arriving from out-of-town or prefer a special date and time, couples are encouraged to make an appointment. Payment is due at the time of booking an appointment along with a valid Province of Alberta marriage license.

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.
