An optional rehearsal of the ceremony can be arranged for an additional fee of $100. A rehearsal is recommended if you are customizing your ceremony. This fee include a pre– ceremony meeting, a rehearsal, and the ceremony.
Expenses and Mileage
Depending on location there may also be a charge for mileage and accommodations. Mileage fee of about 45.85 ¢/km..This is the rate set by the province. I would be delighted to do your wedding but if you can find someone in your area you may be able to save yourself the mileage fee. ( I waive the mileage fee for the first 50 km of travel)
