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.

Enoch Turner Schoolhouse - time travelling on a Fall wedding

Another century!  The lovely flowergirls and the wonderful couple are in front of the door of Enoch Turner Schoolhouse.  Looks like a Royal Wedding!  (The girls dresses are actually from Amazon - at very reasonable cost - amazingnesss.)  But the bride made almost everything else - from the favours, to the wands, to the table crosswords and puzzles for everyone. It fit the schoolhouse perfectly.
This is a crowdsourced photo, with permission from the mom's to post it here.. thanks!

Special Wedding at Bar Mercurio - and a good cause

Here is a great couple from a wedding on the Bar Mercurio patio, at St George and Bloor.  The groom is a Doctor at UofT, but also works with Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders) and they were working in Chad. The photographer was a field photographer with MSF, and the best man was also with MSF!   Doctors without Borders do such wonderful, brave work - a portion of this wedding fee was donated to MSF, and if you are looking for a deserving 'wedding charity', here's the link to share:

Gladstone, Upper lounge - intimate location

Gladstone, Upper lounge
We usually hold weddings in the ballroom at the Gladstone (or, once, in the Tower Room suite for a family group) but lately we've had a few smaller weddings (15-40 people) in the upstairs lounge area.  Here is a nice little wedding in the upper lounge - just a small group of friend and family, and then a nice dinner downstairs.  And there's that fun elevator!  You can have some drinks set up at a portable bar, and then go downstairs for more food. 

We had another wedding here on the night of Nuit Blanche! It was very much fun, tho some art patrons wanted to see things as dusk fell.  Check the dates of Toronto events when you plan a wedding!
