Has anyone gotten married at Toronto City Hall?
I know that you only get half an hour and the ceremony itself is 15 minutes. You should also arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to take care of paperwork and payment.
But what happens in the ceremony exactly?
1. Do the two of us walk up to the podium? (Is there a podium?) Or can we do the traditional thing where the groom is up at the front and I do an entrance?
2. If we want to write our own vows, I know that we have to keep it short, but how short and when does it come in?
3. I know they say there’s a selection of music we can choose from, but how do we go about selecting it? I assume we can’t just sit there and listen to a preview of every song they have on hand. And if we bring our own music, what format should we bring it in?
4. Also how is parking there? We’re having close family members attending. Will they be able to find parking easily on a Saturday afternoon?
If anyone has gotten married and have been to a Toronto City Hall wedding, some insight would be much appreciated!
We’re also thinking of doing our first looks at Nathan Phillips Square prior to the ceremony. Not 100% how that’s going to work out, but hoping the photographer will have a better idea.
