Simple quick ceremony
The legal minimum
Otherwise known as a “You and Two” ceremony (meaning the couple and their two witnesses) or an “Elopement”, it’s possible and fully legal and proper to be married quickly and simply in just a few minutes, with just the couple and their two witnesses.
Couples who opt for a short and simple ceremony may simply want to avoid the stress, planning and expense of a more formal wedding, or be driven by other life circumstances.
A simple, quick ceremony can be accomplished at your home or any location you arrange. All you need to do is get your marriage licence and contact me. I will come to your location, perform the ceremony, and legally register your marriage with the government (fulfilling all legal aspects) on the same day.
Couples opting for a short and simple ceremony may be planning a destination wedding and wish to get the legal requirements out of the way first.
- This can avoid the worry and hassles of going through bureaucracy and legalities in an unfamiliar foreign environment.
- You have your ceremony the day before (or even day of) departure.
- I can work with you to create a wedding script to be used at the subsequent ceremony at the destination, further eliminating a potentially stressful and error-prone experience.
- Your guests at the destination may or may not need to be aware of the fact that you are already legally married. For form’s sake, you might even sign a document at the destination ceremony to mark its occurrence.
The simple ceremony is easy and quick to set up and Chris is ready to meet your needs at any time.
