Getting Married in Montreal
The largest city in Quebec and the second largest in Canada, why not consider a wedding abroad in Montreal. With a strong contrast between the man-made architecture and the natural beauty of the landscape, Montreal is a beautiful city to hold your wedding abroad. If you want a wedding ceremony with a difference then downtown Montreal would be perfect – with a lively mix of jazz and rock music, mixed in with the French culture of the city, it is truly unique. When getting married in Montreal there are some legal aspects that you need to consider but your wedding planner will be able to advise you on these.
Before conducting the marriage ceremony, the officiant must announce the couple’s intention to marry by means of a notice posted for 20 days before the date of the marriage at the place where the ceremony is to be held and at the nearest courthouse. The notice must include the name, domiciliary address and date and place of birth of each of the intended spouses; the accuracy of the information must be confirmed by a witness of full age. Québec does not have any residency requirements to apply for a marriage license. For further information visit http://www.justice.gouv.qc.ca/english/publications/generale/maria-a.htm#notice
