WEDDINGS

Weddings

Are you looking for a one-of-a kind wedding ceremony that is centered around the love you share?  Do you want your ceremony and the words spoken to be the most memorable part of your wedding day?

I can help you create a personalized ceremony that reflects your vision and what you value most for your big day.

I’m Heather Klassen, a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant,™ licensed Marriage Officiant in the Province of Alberta and an ordained clergy in Mennonite Church Alberta. I will tailor your ceremony to your background and values. With my specialized training in ceremony creation and rituals, and years of public speaking experience, I can suggest readings, vows, rituals, music, and ways to include your family and friends.  But the choice will be yours, and you will have final approval over the words that I speak.

Process of obtaining Marriage Licences

Both partners must apply personally for a marriage licence at any Registry Agent in Alberta. The marriage licence is valid for three months from the date it was purchased. There is no waiting period, so the wedding can take place the same day the licence is issued.

I remind each couple the day before the wedding to bring their valid marriage licence to the ceremony – we can’t proceed without it!

The Province of Alberta requires that you have at least 2 witnesses, age 18 or older. Both spouses and witnesses will sign the Registration of Marriage in black ink during the wedding ceremony.  I will mail the completed registration  to Vital Statistics, Province of Alberta, immediately after your ceremony.

To receive your official Certificate of Marriage, you can apply at any registry agency in Alberta.

As an ordained clergy member in Mennonite Church Alberta, I legally perform wedding ceremonies in Alberta.

Let’s create a one-of-a-kind ceremony – personalized just for you.
