Welcome to ElopeToronto.com!

Welcome to ElopeToronto.com! We conduct simple, 'civil' (non-religious, non-denominational, secular) humanist weddings. The ceremonies are similar to those conducted by a 'Justice of the Peace", or at "city hall".

Winter Weddings - locations, COVID, and vaccinations

As we negotiate changes in COVID regulations, we've had to adjust wedding protocols and plans.  Most Fall weddings were outdoors, and quite small - the couple, a few friends or family, and a safe place to stand and  sign documents.  That meant High Park, Riverdale Park, some Condo gardens, and a few backyards.  

Now that it's cold, there have been a few indoor weddings in apartments, (and balconies), and we've all been double-vaxxed, and had our vaccination certificates.  The last three weddings were for Doctors, Scientists and Health Professionals (oddly!) and everyone was fully vaccinated - yay!  I also did a couple of weddings at venues (Enoch Turner, La Maquette) and they had staff checking Vax IDs, and the guests were masked during the ceremony, or we held it outside.

We'll see what winter brings!  But it's so nice to be able to hold these small, intimate, *warm* weddings in cold times.   We've had a bit more 'zoom & skype' guests, but it's mostly been family and close friends gathering in someone's home  - the way weddings USED to be!   

Feel free to contact me if you want to chat about ideas - it's been fun talking to people about plans and ideas.      Cheers,  Mary
