Civil Marriage Ceremonies

The Township of Guelph/Eramosa offers Civil Marriage Ceremonies performed by the Municipal Clerk or the Deputy Clerk.  Services can be held in Council Chambers at 8348 Wellington Road 124 and are available by appointment only.  Other locations may be arranged at the discretion of the Officiant (Municipal Clerk or Deputy Clerk).  Certain dates and times may not be available throughout the year, including statutory holidays.  For weddings in Council Chambers, alcohol, confetti, bubbles, rice, candles or incense are not permitted.

All ceremonies require a pre-wedding consultation prior to the ceremony, usually arranged at least 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. For consultations, couples must come prepared with the following:

  • A valid marriage license
  • Government issued photo ID
  • Payment for ceremony
  • Names and addresses of two witnesses
  • Any materials to be incorporated into the ceremony

Please note that any Civil Marriage Ceremony performed by Marriage Officiants will be a non-denominational and dignified ceremony, which adheres to the requirements of the Marriage Act for the Province of Ontario. All fees are payable by cash, cheque or debit at the Township of Guelph/Eramosa.

The Township also offers venues for your ceremony and reception, whether it be an outdoor or an indoor celebration.
