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.

Lovely private elopement at University of Toronto

In the midst of  'bigger' weddings, here is a lovely couple from New Zealand, and we had a super little wedding on a spring day, just on Philosopher's walk... it's the funny time between end of school and summer classes, and the weather was lovely, and the few passersby just smiled at us.  Note:  always take photos of small elopements, it's additional 'proof' of a non - traditional wedding.  We took pix of us signing the Marriage License sitting on the little stone amphitheatre behind the Faculty of Music.

 .....and then the next week....---->

We used the little amphitheatre again -  for another little private wedding, just the couple and their families.  Music camp was out, so there were no kids rolling down the hill on their break (tho I think Sports Camp was running strong at Trinity!).   Passersby were very kindly, and it was pretty cheery all around.  I don't think the people sitting on the benches up the path even knew what was happening, tho' a few cyclists stopped to grin and wave.    The squirrels were also interested, I think....

Summer weddings -- restaurants, museums, all over town

So - too many to mention, but maybe some pix later - We had some restaurant weddings - at

Le Select Jardin
Bar Mercurio
Sassafraz, in the upper room, the UofT Faculty ClubLe Select a few more times, in the lovely back 'jardin', both for supper and brunch. We had a family wedding at  Bar Mercurio - the one on St George/Bloor, in the side garden.  Then some Hart House weddings, and a few lovely backyard Annex weddings, then some museums: down to the  Gardiner museum , and then up to Spadina House
, where we had a surprise New Orleans marching band lead in the couple (fun! here they are below on the steps of Spadina House, playing the couple out) and then back down to Enoch Turner for a couple more lovely
