    The cities we generally frequent are:

    • Gananoque
    • Kingston
    • Napanee
    • Perth
    • Picton
    • Tweed
    • Westport

    The basic area is shown in this coverage map. We occasionally travel beyond this region - it doesn't hurt to ask!

  2. How much notice do you need to perform a ceremony?

    There is no specific lead-time necessary. Availability is the key. A few days may be enough notice, while a year may not be enough, depending on prior bookings. Again, it doesn't hurt to ask!

  6. Do you marry people who have been married before?

    Yes. Many couples choose alternate settings for second and subsequent marriages and enjoy the intimate atmosphere of a "homestyle" wedding.

  7. What do you mean by an "interfaith" ceremony?

    This refers to a ceremony for two people who have different heritages and who wish to include specific aspects of their respective religions in their marriage ceremony. Sometimes two clergy conduct the ceremony jointly. I am willing to co-officiate in this way.

  8. What do you mean by a "non-denominational" ceremony?

    Ceremonies that have a spiritual orientation rather than a basis in one particular religious denomination. Specific rituals, traditions and prayers may be included at your request.

  9. What do you mean by a "humanist" ceremony?

  11. Do you perform same-sex wedding ceremonies?

    Yes.

  12. Do you perform marriages in Quebec?

    This is a qualified answer. I am licensed by the Government of Ontario to perform marriages, so any ceremony I perform must be registered in Ontario and the signing must occur in Ontario. I can perform the ceremony in Quebec, but the signing and registering of the marriage must take place in Ontario. Another way for me to perform your ceremony in Quebec is for you to have a separate civil signing with someone in Quebec who can perform the legal signing there.
