The availability of off-site wedding ceremonies is at the discretion of the Marriage Officiant and may be subject to additional charges.

Couples can choose to bring additional decorations and music. Please review the general information and guidelines for additional information on acceptable decorations and music.

Couples can choose from one of four ceremony scripts (see below under "Downloads.") You can also add your own personalized vows or other custom elements. All additions to the ceremony must be approved by the Marriage Officiant at the mandatory consultation meeting and cannot include religious elements due to the civil nature of the ceremony.

Two witnesses are required. Both witnesses should be over 14 years of age (16 years old preferred). The witnesses must be able to understand the ceremony and what is actually taking place. If you are unable to provide your own witnesses, Town staff can act as witnesses for a nominal fee (subject to availability). Please arrange this service at the time of your consultation.
