Welcome to ElopeToronto.com!

Welcome to ElopeToronto.com! We provide simple, meaningful, secular (non-religious) humanist marriage ceremonies in Toronto, legally equivalent to a 'civil ceremony' or 'justice of the peace' wedding, for couples looking for a personal alternative to a 'City Hall' wedding.

See FAQ: HOW TO PLAN YOUR WEDDING: How to get your license, find a location, legal requirements, witnesses, the process of 'signing the papers', or 'registering a wedding' and how to apply for your CERTIFICATE OF MARRIAGE REGISTRATION. See the Toronto Registry link for information on a MARRIAGE LICENSE and MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE (online application, hours & location, fee, divorced applicants, IDs required, etc.)

Mary is licensed as a Marriage Officiant by the Registrar General of Ontario, and the Ontario Humanist Society (and has performed over 1200 weddings)
HUMANISM is an ethical philosophy of secular living, stating we all share a duty of care, to lead ethical lives of compassion and respect, for each other, and for the world we all share. Humanist Wedding Ceremonies are simple, meaningful, non-religious legal marriage ceremonies written specifically for each couple, which reflect your wishes, your values, and your story. We also provide humanist ceremonies for baby-namings, memorials, and other life events.


Island Wedding? Getting there takes advance planning - and patience

Toronto News: First summer weekend tests your ferry patience - thestar.com
"...Here’s one sure sign of summer in Toronto — ferry lineups. Thousands of men, women and children waited in long lines to board a ferry to attend one of the many events scheduled at the Toronto Islands, including the Dragon Boat races.. At 1:30 p.m. the line of people waiting to board stretched east of Yonge St. Would-be passengers shuffled on their feet and shielded themselves from the mid-day sun with everything from magazines and folded newspapers to wide brimmed hats and umbrellas. Wait times weren’t the only thing on the rise — the cost of parking in the area crept up to as much as $30. Parking in the area usually costs between $10 and $12.
The thick crowds of people waiting to travel to the islands prompted many to pay a bit extra to ride in one of several water taxi services operating throughout the day.
[and the water taxis line was also 45 minutes]. 

 Remember, even if you and your advance party make it to the Island in time, your guests, witnesses, photographer, and OFFICIANT, may not!  Ferries also leave unpredictably - sometimes before the time listed.

THE ONLY WAY to manage this is:
a)  Choose a weekday
b)  Buy paper ferry tickets IN ADVANCE, and buy them ON A WEEKDAY, FOR the weekday.
