How soon should we book?

It is best to book early! Saturdays are the first to go! Some months are busier than others. We suggest six to twelve months before your wedding date, but call us even if you have just decided to get married as we may have availability.

Can photos be taken during the ceremony?

This is the couples decision.  We ask that the photographers be as discreet as possible during the actual ceremony in order to avoid distraction.

How do I change my name after the wedding?

First you will need to apply for a certificate of marriage.  You will find more information on this process in our Bride Name Change section of the website.

How and when do we pay you?

We accept cash, cheque, email money transfer, or PayPal. Deposit is due at time of booking in order to secure date and time.  The balance is due two weeks before the actual wedding day.  We do not accept cheques the day of the wedding.
