A Message from our officiant

Same Sex weddings with Elope Niagara: Your Wedding, Your Way

I am proud to officiate at same-sex weddings for gay and lesbian couples here at Niagara’s Little Log Chapel. Working with Elope Niagara’s owners Kathy and Kim for so many years, I know that they share my commitment to equality. Caring and approachable, you couldn’t ask for more delightful and talented people to assist you on your special day.

As an officiant and as a woman in a same-sex marriage, I know first-hand the struggle gay and lesbian couples face every day from those who believe that same gender couples should not have the benefits and blessing of a civil or sacramental wedding ceremony.  I have been in your shoes, which makes the opportunity for me to officiate at your wedding or renewal of vows such an honour.

Wedding ceremonies should do more than meet the demands of a legal wedding; they should reflect the wishes and desires of the couple. To accomplish that, I am happy to customize ceremonies to the tastes of couples and we are committed to creating an unforgettable experience in this one-of-a-kind creek-side chapel setting.

Some of our same-sex weddings have been very casual, while other ceremonies have been refined and elegant. Elope Niagara’s Little Log Chapel lends itself beautifully to weddings of all types – casual, rustic, elegant, novelty.  Kathy and Kim pride themselves on their ability to satisfy even the most discriminating taste, and I am thrilled that they open their beautiful chapel to lesbian and gay couples.

I look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your very special celebration.


Same Sex weddings in Niagara

Weddings at our little, creekside log chapel in the woods are private and secluded. Niagara’s little log chapel is perfect for 2-12 people coming together to celebrate a union. We can supply witnesses for you as well. You will enjoy the serene setting for your photo session away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Below are the license requirements. We look forward to being your hosts! Kim and Kathy

What are the legal requirements to marry in Ontario?

You can find complete requirements for marriage licenses from the Niagara Falls city website, Click on City Hall, then Marriage Licenses for details; special requirements apply if you have been divorced or had an annulment. There is a $125 (Canadian dollars) fee for the license, which you can use anywhere in Ontario for 90 days after it is issued.

IMPORTANT What If I Have Been Divorced?

If you have been divorced outside of Canada, you will not be granted a license until a Canadian lawyer verifies your documents.
A Canadian lawyer MUST do the footwork, send things off to Thunder Bay (Registrar General) and then you may apply for a license. The process takes at least four days.

What if we are not Canadian?

You do not have to be a Canadian citizen to marry in Canada. There are no residency or citizenship requirements, nor are there any special requirements for same-sex couples.

Everyone requires a passport to enter into Canada.
