Frequently Asked Questions:
How much does it cost to hire your services?
Our minimum charge is $750 (Canadian) for which we guarantee you 5 hours of our time together with face-to-face meetings with your venue and suppliers. After this our fee is negotiable. All charges are payable in Canadian dollars directly into our Canadian bank account.
Size of event you are able to organise
From an elopement for two people upwards. We choose our venues to suit the number of guests you wish to invite.
Services you offer
Full wedding planning in the UK and Ontario, Canada with help every step of the way. We work with a travel consultant who is able to book flights and hotels for you and your guests for the wedding and/or your honeymoon.
Do you organise gay weddings?
Yes. Same-sex marriages are legal in Canada so you will have a wedding ceremony NOT a civil partnership ceremony.
What are the forms of payment?
We will provide a proposal which will show the associated costs together with when, where and how they need to be paid. We ask for funds to be paid directly into our Canadian bank account. You will pay an agreed deposit and then the balance will fall due 6 weeks before the wedding date. We accept "Magic"gift cards.
What are the temperatures like?
Temperatures in Spring and Fall are similar to the UK. Winter can be very cold with temperatures around freezing or below so you will need to ensure you have warm layers. Hats, scarves and gloves are all essential due to the wind chill effect. Summer sees the temperature climb to around 30° although depending on exactly where you are, the humidex can add another 10°-15°.
What is there to do
There is no shortage of things to do whatever your interests. In Southern Ontario, canoeists and hikers take to the lakes and forests, boaters and divers can also find adventure off the shores of the Great Lakes. Those who are looking for an even more remote experience will find invitingly pristine lakes and forests in Northwestern Ontario where the only way in is by plane.For visitors who prefer a more urban experience, the provincial capital, Toronto claims to be the most multiculturally diverse city on the planet: over 140 languages are spoken. It’s a vibrant, big-time city abuzz with activity: some of the world's finest restaurants, happening bars, clubs and eclectic festivals are found here. And of course, you cannot leave Ontario without visiting Niagara Falls – a natural wonder of the world!
Why would we choose Maple Leaf Weddings
We believe your wedding day is one day in your life when you should live your dream and we LOVE making perfect memories.
How about getting there
From the UK, direct flights to Toronto leave from Heathrow and Gatwick all year round, with summer flights also going from Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Flights tend to start at around £350. The flight time is approx. 7 ½ hours.
How far in advance do we need to book
We can organise all the details easily within a week (if you haven't been divorced).There are no residency requirements to marry in Ontario, so in theory, you could fly in and get married on the same day! You are able to complete a marriage licence application online and then you will need to go to the local city hall to collect and pay for it.If one of you has previously been married, the Ontario government require that your divorce is "recognised" by an Ontario lawyer. This can take anything from 2 - 6 weeks and once done is valid for 90 days.
