Services - Marriage Commissioner

Marriage Commissioner Randall Edge performs wedding ceremony services for the solemnization of marriages normally within the boundaries of the City of Regina. This is the area to which he has been appointed to provide service by the Saskatchewan government.
=====
All appointment bookings are made on a preliminary reservation basis.  Firstly there is no deposit required to secure a booking.  To secure a booking Randall does request that a couple completes and then returns to Randall a MA-1 Information Form. The information contained on this form is used by Randall to prepare the legal documents that are signed during the wedding service.
====
Preliminary reservations date and times are held by Randall for 14 days.  Randall reserves the right to cancel preliminary reservations after the 14 day wait period.  Having said that, once Randall receives a completed MA1 form, he then proceeds to convert the preliminary reservation into a confirmed booking.  The booking couple can check that their booking is accepted and "locked in" by checking the availability section of Randall's web site.
=====
The basic fee for a Marriage Solemnization ceremony:  $100.00 per ceremony performed (which includes the cost of a wedding rehearsal as well). Tips are gratefully appreciated but are at the absolute option of the wedding couple.  For more information, review the MA-7 Form - Listing of Services. Couples can elect to provide the payment in the same envelope that contains the original marriage license form that is given to Randall when he arrives on the wedding day or at the rehearsal.  Randall must be given the original marriage license form before the wedding ceremony can be performed.  Randall accepts payment for his fees by a variety of options.  Randall does not need to be paid on the wedding day.  He invoices for his services by email on request and can by paid by either cash payment, postdated cheque, e-payment or by use of a Visa or MasterCard. When Randall is paid in cash, Randall considers the cash form of payment as including a gratuity (a tip).

Marriage Commissioners are sometimes referred to by their former name (before 1996), namely "J.P." (Justice of the Peace).  Randall will respond to the term "JP".
======
Under the requirements of the Marriage Act, 1997, the couple to be married should avoid the consumption of intoxicating beverages (etc.) prior to the conduct of the marriage ceremony. The couple should possess the ability to speak and comprehend the English language in order to understand the legal nature of the marriage vows. The Act also stipulates that the timing of marriage ceremonies between the hours of 10pm and 6am (22:00 to 06:00) should also be avoided. The couple is expected to provide two witnesses for the ceremony, both of which are eighteen years of age or older.
