Love in the Time of Covid

With Covid-19 still hindering a lot of wedding plans it can be hard to come up with alternative plans. Many regions are opening up weddings to a limit of 10 people (or 50 outside). Engaged couples are opting to Elope instead of having a large wedding because of this. Below you will find a bunch of helpful info on how to best plan an Elopement or Intimate wedding.

With the limits changing and travel getting harder, it's a good idea to stream your wedding. This allows those that are unable to attend in person still be apart of the celebration.

Plan out your ceremony and your reception space in a way that guests can keep 2 meters apart at all times.

Have extra masks for attendees in case someone has forgotten theirs. Also its a good idea to have extra hand sanitizer around for guests to use.

Timeline Tip for Lighting

Elopements and micro weddings have more flexibility with timing on the day. Take advantage of this flexibility in scheduling by picking the ideal lighting time. The early morning and the early evening are the best for this to get extra dreamy photos of you as a couple. So plan your day with this in mind!

you will need

Make sure to grab any permits you may need to get married in your location. Provincial Parks in Ontario often need one and its best to secure that for no unexpected surprises.

It's best to get your marriage license a few weeks early if you can manage it. The license is good for 90 days in Ontario and you will need the things off this list to acquire it. Keep in mind you need two witnesses to sign. For my Elopement packages I have an assistant with me to cover this portion if needed!

You will also need a Registered Officiant and I can help in the process of finding one.
