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.
If you like Hart House at the University of Toronto, but are also looking for a great chef and a 'different' ambience than one of the halls, we've had a couple of weddings lately at the Gallery Grill at Hart House. It's housed in the old Faculty dining room, overlooking the Great Hall. We're having a wedding in the intimate grill area later this year, in front of the Fireplace, but this event was in the dining room. You can have a reasonable number of people - 30-60? Just ask them - esp if this is a seated dinner, which is usual. But it's best with under 50, I'd think. You also have the front bar area for cocktails, and then the dining room for the dinner. So, about the same size as the Wedding at Frank at the AGO, or at Le Select, or other restaurants we've used.
