Marriage Commissioner in Alberta

Weddings are… about love!

Are you planning to get married reasonably soon?

If so, congratulations!!!!wedding

Marriage can be the most amazing, grounding, fulfilling, and satisfying experience in life.  It is the biggest investment couples make and it can provide the greatest benefits, value, happiness and joy.  Nothing else compares!!

If you are getting married, you deserve to have your ceremony an incredibly enjoyable, meaningful, and memorable event.  It is way more than just a formality, it is a part of planning and formulating a life of happiness together – and you deserve the best!

I can help you with this – in fact, I share with couples that the marriages I perform are guaranteed for life.


The wedding Dan gave us was so, so much more than either of us could ever have wished for.  Dan was articulate, entertaining, engaging and genuine.  Our guests laughed with us, cried with us and remained fully present while Dan led us through an intensely personal and incredibly beautiful ceremony.  Integrating the details that each of us had shared wedding ringsabout the other person, Dan customized a program that was a perfect reflection of us as individuals, an accurate portrayed our lives together and an inspiring look at who we were about to become as husband and wife.

“I know I said thank you but I didn’t take the time to really tell you how much your ceremony truly meant to Brett and I. Your questionnaire prior to our interview made both Brett and I think about ourselves and our relationship.  It made me dig deep and think about things I haven’t given a whole lot of thought about.  I thank you for that.

Before marriage, I felt like Brett and I were as confident and promised to each other Weddingas you can get.  I haven’t asked Brett yet, but I know for myself, that after the ceremony I have never felt such a strong connection with him as I share with him now.  During the ceremony I felt as though both our hearts were truly on the table and that we have never been so open and vulnerable with each other.  Those words you spoke were yours and ours.  They were absolutely perfect because they were from the questions from our souls. The ceremony was my absolutely favorite part of the whole day and weekend!  I enjoy replaying it in my mind and am so thankful we met you.  It was meant to be!”

The Province of Alberta (Service Alberta) does a great job of interviewing and authorizing Marriage Commissioners, and each has the ability to work with the couple to design their event.  There is a ton of room for flexibility – for your special requests.

I’m honoured to talk to you about your wedding and to help you design and develop a ceremony that is just right for you – and even better!

The process:

  1. Several months prior to your wedding, I’ll email you a reminder about your Marriage Licence, which is valid for 90 days.  I’ll share with you the things you’ll need to take with you, and how you can prepare to get your Licence as easily as possible.
  2. At that same time, you’ll receive a questionnaire.  Yes, it asks about the logistical details.  Most importantly are questions for you and your soon-to-be spouse to answer about your relationship:  things you love, admire, respect, appreciate about your partner, dreams for the future, things you like to do together, etc.
  3. Within a month of your wedding, we’ll schedule a time to meet in person. If that is not possible, a phone call or Zoom can work.  In this meeting, we’ll get to know each other, go over the details of the event, and I’ll ask lots more questions to learn about you, your visions for your special event, and the life you are creating as a married couple.

With this information, your ceremony will be custom designed just for you.

Service Alberta likes for Marriage Commissioners to work within their own local communities.  If you are getting married in the areas listed below, please call me at 780-785-3700 or 780-785-9479.  I’m honoured to chat with you and help you make your wedding a life-long joyous memory.
