Toronto winters almost beg for a destination wedding don’t they? Getting married on a beautiful beach is certainly a romantic, not to mention warm, thought. However there are some legal issues to consider about getting married out of the country. When you get married outside of Ontario, your marriage will not be registered in Ontario. You may need to purchase a license from that jurisdiction. In addition you may require documentation proving that you are not currently married. This document is often referred to as a Letter of Non-Impediment. Foreign countries and small island nations may not be diligent as licensing Officiants as Canada is and there have been instances when couples found out after the fact that they were not legally married.
Why not begin your destination wedding at home and have an intimate wedding ceremony in Toronto, prior to leaving? You will have the peace of mind that you are legally married in Ontario and family and friends who may not be able to travel with you will be able to share in this important occasion. Contact the Toronto Wedding Chapel to arrange for a wedding ceremony in Toronto. When you arrive at your destination you can still have the ceremony that you planned without worrying about the legalities.
