So you are ready to tie the knot in Vancouver, but you need to find someone to conduct your ceremony. In Canada you can have either a civil marriage conducted by a licensed Marriage Commissioner or you can have a religious wedding. We had a civil wedding, so I will provide some insight on that first.
The best way to find someone is by word of mouth. Our commissioner was Ann Moore, and I couldn’t think of a more caring individual. Steven was very nervous due to language issues, and she helped us through the ceremony. You can browse the entire list of marriage commissioners if Ann is unavailable.
Once you have contacted the commissioner you should ask about the following information:
- Dates and availability
- Number of guests
- The ceremony (sample ceremony)
We had a very simple ceremony with only two friends attending (the minimum required) in a small house wearing casual attire.
