Officiant Coaching

In Alberta, you can apply to be a temporary marriage commissioner at no cost; this enables you to have a friend or family officiate on your special day.

Wedding Ceremonies have a lot of details and can be overwhelming.

I will coach your officiant through the process, so they are confident when standing before you and conducting your ceremony.

I have checklists and tips from over ten years of experience officiating ceremonies.

An applicant for a temporary marriage commissioner appointment:

  • must be 18 years or older
  • must be a permanent resident of Canada
  • is appointed for one day
  • is only authorized to perform a civil (non-religious) marriage ceremony in Alberta
  • cannot charge a fee to perform a marriage
  • cannot represent themselves as a permanent marriage commissioner or solicit business of this nature
  • Applications take from 2 to 4 weeks to process. Apply early.
