Wedding Ceremony Rates and Services

We offer many services in addition to acting as your Marriage Commissioner. We are happy to sign papers, officiate your ceremony, run your rehearsal (whether or not I am your officiant), collaborate with you to write a personalized ceremony, or act as a consultant on the ceremony you have tried to put together on your own. In addition to ceremony services, Marry Me, Hunnie is also an official marriage license vendor. 

Most services are now available in French with our Marriage Commissioner, Rebecca.



Every wedding we preside over, whether it be for 5 people or 150 people gets the same attention to detail and commitment.  If you have any questions regarding fees and payment, please use the form on the "Contact Us" page.  Also, be sure to read My Commitment to You.
 
Please be patient with ongoing changes as we navigate through uncertain times. 
 
Please note:
For the time being, all planning meetings will be conducted virtually and all ceremonies written over a series of emails.  Thank you for your understanding.

Simple Signing Service: The Essentials


A) DOCUMENTATION ONLY…………………..................................$175*

This rate applies to couples who wish to be legally married in Manitoba before heading to a destination wedding or wish to "make it legal" with NO CEREMONY attached to the document completion. 

Included:

  • Meeting with you and your witnesses to complete the legal documentation
  • Ensure all legal obligations are met
  • Complete and file all paperwork


B) LEGAL WITNESS......................................................(starting at) $175*

If you wish to have a friend officiate for you without having them apply for legal standing, we are happy help! We will attend your ceremony to ensure the legalities are met and complete and submit your paperwork. We can also assist in other ways, by providing a standard ceremony or creating a custom ceremony. Prices will vary, depending on the services requested.


Other Services:



Marriage Licenses for  Sale..................................$100

We offer flexible hours  (open until 10pm) and will also provide mobile services for a nominal fee.  We operate in EK/Transcona, River Heights, and the Polo Park area. Marriage licences are sold as a curbside service, following health and safety protocols.



Rehearsal................................................................$150

Rehearsals are recommended if you have not been to many weddings yourself, or if members of your wedding party are inexperienced. If you have more than two attendants each, rehearsals are strongly suggested.  Some venues insist you have a rehearsal; be sure to check at the time of booking. 

I am willing to conduct your rehearsal whether or not you hire me as your marriage commissioner. 

If you are being married by a friend who has no idea how to organize your people during the actual ceremony, consider having me run your rehearsal and coach your "day of" officiant.

Included:

I will run your rehearsal, suggest processional options, review roles and responsibilities of wedding party members, review the ceremony, and practice the entrance and exit. Rehearsals are 45-60 minutes in duration and require the attendance of all pertinent players.  Be sure to have your music available! Dates are limited. 

Note:  Rehearsals need not be held at the wedding venue. Out-of-town rehearsals may not be possible. Travel fees will apply.


Personalized Wedding Ceremony Writing...........$100

This is an a la carte service  for couples who have a family member or friend licensed to conduct their ceremony but would still like to have a unique, personal ceremony. 

Included:

  • A complimentary Quick Chat virtual consultation, by phone or online to see if we are a good “fit” (15 minutes)
  • A virtual planning meeting to create a personalized Order of Service 
  • One-on-one guidance through the writing process
  • Unlimited revisions and edits of your ceremony
  • Additional communication via email and prompt responses to your questions

Ceremony Consultation Service.........prices will vary

You have spent hours on Pinterest putting together your ceremony but aren't sure if it is the best it can be.  Does it meet the legal requirements necessary in Manitoba? Is the sequence appropriate?  Is there something you've missed?  Does it flow well? Need help with personal vows?
I would be happy to read your draft ceremony over and provide expert advice as to how you can improve it.


A testimonial: 

"We had a friend who was going to officiate our wedding so we set out to create our own wedding vows. We wanted our vows to be unique to us and wanted them to really capture our relationship. Far too complicated for an already stressed bride! Fortunately, we found "Marry Me, Hunnie". All of our contact with Sheryl was online as we had minimal time to meet with her in person. Sheryl was such a great find - prompt and very easy going! A breath of fresh air in the wedding industry. She loves what she's doing! After a few rough drafts we had our final wedding vows. Vows so good I tear up every time I read them. Everyone - family, friends and DJs- wanted to know who wrote our vows. We will be recommending her to all of our engaged friends in the future!"



Baby Welcoming ..................................................$200

In most cultures and traditions, the occasion of a baby's birth is marked by a welcoming ceremony.  Often the baby's name is officially "bestowed" and parents may be called on to make promises to raise to raise their child according to certain ordinances. 

I am pleased to offer an alternative to a traditional christening or bris milah by working with you to create a meaningful ceremony that formally welcomes your new baby to your family, your community, and the world.


Additional fees:

Due to the amount of construction in and around downtown Winnipeg, we will be taking advantage of valet or preferred parking (including parkade) wherever possible.  This cost (up to $20) will be added to the invoice.  

Admission fees (where applicable), including park passes, are to be paid by the couple.


*All fees noted above apply to events held within city limits.  Should you wish to be married beyond the Perimeter, travel fees will apply. Expenses are calculated at $.50/km from the officiant's home to the venue (return).



Retainer Information: 

Please note that a non-refundable retainer of $150 is due immediately upon booking. This retainer guarantees your date and my commitment to you.  Should Public Health Orders necessitate a change in your plans, your retainer may be applied to a future date (if available) with no additional fee or penalties (ONE TIME). Subsequent changes in date, time, or venue may be subject to a $25 fee.

Please read Our Commitment to You for specific details.

IMPORTANT:

Until retainers are paid, all dates are considered "tentative" and are NOT guaranteed. 

I reserve the right to withdraw any agreement to act as your Commissioner if your retainer has not been made within 3 days of initial contact.

All bookings are scheduled as deposits are received.

The balance of your account must be paid any time prior to your wedding day.  The rehearsal day is usually a convenient time at which to settle your account.

I am happy to accept cash, cheque, money order, or e-transfer payments. Cheques must be received 5 banking days before the ceremony date.
