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.
=====
Randall is happy to send to you upon request his information package by email that outlines how the wedding service is conducted as well as a guide for the services he offers. Just text your email address to his SMS/Text at 306-737-1760.  Email:  randall.edge@gmail.com
======
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 return to Randall an MA1 Form to Reserve Date and Time of Wedding Booking The information contained on this form is used by Randall to prepare the legal documents that are signed during the wedding service.
====
Preliminary reservation dates 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 throughout 2020 is  $100.00 per ceremony performed (which includes the cost of a wedding rehearsal as well, if needed). Tips are gratefully appreciated but are at the absolute option of the wedding couple.  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.  The invoices for his services by email upon request and can be 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).
======
Live Streaming for the airing and recording of the wedding service (over the internet) is now offered by Randall as an optional service.
======
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.

Wedding Venue: Rotary Park on Bridge Avenue near Albert Street and Regina Ave.


Rotary Park

Rotary Park is located on Bridge Avenue (near 2738 Regina Avenue near Angus Street)

Do not worry about making a reservation or paying a fee.  Rotary Park is a quiet forgotten little park nestled in downtown Regina and is sandwiched between Wascana Creek and Bridge Avenue near the bustle of downtown Regina.  Just west of the Victoria Street Bridge, there is ample parking on Bridge Avenue.  This is a delightful setting for a small gathering for a wedding ceremony.  The park is shaded with trees and is really only visited by joggers on the bicycle path that winds through this little piece of urban forest.
