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.  To secure a booking, Randall does not require a deposit to confirm a booking but does request that a booking couple completes a MA-1 Information Form .  The completed form can be faxed to the secure and confidential fax at 855-365-2144 or by email (by scanning the MA1 document) to Randall.Edge@gmail.com.  This is the only way to change your booking from a preliminary reservation to a confirmed booking.  The information contaioned on this form is also used by Randall to prepare the legal documents that are signed during the wedding service.
====
Preliminary reservations date and times are held for 60 days.  Randall reserves the right to cancel preliminary reservations after 60 days in the circumstance were there has been no confirmation of the date and time requested by the couple (confirmation is done by submitting a completed MA1 form to Randall).  The couple is free to later make inquiry if their date and time is still available and if it is Randall is happy to re-book a new preliminary reservation that will be held for another 60 days.
=====
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 of Fees & Services. Please provide the payment in the same envelope that contains the original marriage license form when Randall arrives on wedding day.  Randall must be given the original marriage license form before the wedding ceremony can be performed.  Randall accepts payment by cash, cheque, or visa/mastercard (please provide Randall with an email address if paying by credit card). (There is no charge for mileage for ceremonies within the boundaries of Regina)
======
Randall can provide to an all-weather proof venue, as Randall is able to arrange use of the Sanctuary at the Unitarian Fellowship Center at 2700 College Avenue (at Angus Street) for a booking fee of $125.00. This is a great setting for wedding pictures and is available year round for booking.  That means Randall's fee combined with the facility fee is a total of $200 altogether.  You also may wish to consider reserving the Sanctuary as your backup location in the event of rain or wind storms.

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".
=====
Randall is also able to provide music for the wedding service and reception.  For more information please see Randall's "Wedding Music Plan".
