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 Ontario Humanist Society.
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.

Hart House Chapel - lovely Fall wedding



Hart House Chapel!  Two wonderful people, both engineers - and they had their post-wedding pix taken under the Soldiers Tower with an experimental car prototype - and the crew!
Hart House chapel is dark, and Very Small, only 30 people, so it's great for a wonderful intimate family-sized wedding.

Walnut Contemporary Gallery on Ossington (looks like a nice event space)

Walnut Contemporary
Sometimes I notice new event spaces - this was on BlogTo...
Walnut Contemporary
"Walnut Contemporary is Walnut Studios' new new affiliated commercial gallery and event space. It's also blessed with a great origin story: it replaces the defunct Canadian Corps Legion Hall (a legion known more for its rowdy parties and live shows than the usual shuffleboard and keno). Of course, little evidence remains of the space's recent past, as the peanut shells and beer bottles have all been cleared to make way for hardwood flooring and pristine white walls. It's a beautiful gallery, with space enough to launch large-scale exhibitions and events (including a recent performance by contemporary dancer Meredith Kalaman).

Artscape Event Spaces: Wedding Locations

Artscape runs some great programs, rents studio space, and also rents locations for events.  We've held weddings in most of these places, except for the new Regent Park Space!

Artscape, Gibraltar Point, Toronto island

Regents Park, Daniels Spectrum

Brickworks Wedding - Wonderful setting, wonderful time

Beautiful!  More pix soon of this wonderful wedding at the Brickworks - note the groomsman in the middle holding the stuffed moose - which held the couple's rings...

Unusual and delightful private weddings - Graffiti Alley

Lots of fun weddings this weekend - from the Brickworks to Hart House to a 'secret' wedding inside a library (significant for 2 librarians :-)
...but here is a most delightful wedding at "Graffiti Alley", a Toronto landmark.  The couple actually met on a photoshoot here, so it was significant for them.  We even had a few people laying down some artwork on another wall while we were there.... and the occasional tourist, too - quite polite and congratulatory...
