I am getting married on September 26, 2020. My fiancé and I would like to have a friend perform the ceremony and have someone else do the legal stuff either before or after. Unfortunately in Ontario people can't just get ordained online...which is a bummer.
So, my first thought is to do the legal paperwork at a municipal office/the courthouse beforehand, but I am not sure how that actually works. Does anyone have experience with this? My second thought is to hire someone who will just do the legal paperwork day of but I am not sure if officiants would like that. Alternatively I'm also looking to see if there are any photographers who are also officiants (so far I've only found one).
If it proves to be too complicated we will just hire an officiant but I want to explore my options first.
Any insight would be welcome!
