Romantic Elopements and Vow Renewals in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Sweetheart Chapel

Onsite Elopements

There is something magical about an Elopement Ceremony. Traditionally, it meant that the couple would steal away and get married in secret.  

Nowadays, it has come to describe the wish for a shorter ceremony with just the couple or a few guests. Couples report that elopements have none of the stress and all of the meaning.

Here at Sweetheart Chapel, you have the option of our cozy little chapel or the Garden Gazebo for your elopement. Your romantic ceremony with Rev. Deb is personalized to your unique story. You can compose your own vows. We can arrange witnesses if you are coming by yourselves.

We also have a photographer who is available to capture memories. At the end of the ceremony, you will receive your unedited photos on a flash drive.

If you have more than 4 guests, that is considered a Sweet Little Wedding and will take place in the Garden Gazebo.

Booking Your Elopement

A $100 retainer or payment in full is required to hold your time and date. The balance must be paid at least a week before the wedding.

E-transfers may be sent to Rev. Deb at 

If you wish to pay via credit card, Rev. Deb can send an invoice, or you can simply pay via the PayPal buttons below.

The Process

Once your payment is received, and the date and time is confirmed, we will send along the basic ceremony via email. Elements such as a reading and sand ceremony can be added in.

You can add in a photographer who will take photos and give the unedited collection on a USB drive as you leave.  The cost is $150

You can also add in a sand ceremony.  If we provide the materials, it is $45.  If you bring along the materials, we simply include it in the ceremony at no charge.

After you decide what you would like included in your service, you may wish to have a zoom or phone call with Rev. Deb. A personalized ceremony is created and sent for your approval. At this point the service is ready to go and will be one less thing for you to worry about! Just bring the license!


If couples are more than 20 minutes late there is a late fee of $35.

Please note that if couples do not have the balance paid by the wedding or do not have cash at the ceremony, there is a $35 non-payment fee added to the balance owed.
