Sweetheart Chapel, Niagara-on-the-Lake

It's All About Love

Sweetheart Chapel - Small Weddings

We are hoping to open at the end of June for
 outdoor ceremonies only.  

We are able to accommodate elopements and vow renewals for 8 people (including the couple) to ensure proper physical distancing.

Please bring a mask.  We will provide sanitizer and separate pens.

NOTE: There is no access to washrooms.

Good Things Do Come in Smaller Packages!

Not everyone has the budget for a grand scale wedding.  Big weddings are fabulous, but in this ever-changing economy, many couples are opting for a simple ceremony and reserving their savings for a downpayment on a home instead. In fact, more and more people are deciding to elope or hold a small wedding and then have a party to celebrate at a later date.  

We have the perfect solution for you!

You can book your wedding here at the Chapel or Garden (weather-permitting) and bring along up to six guests. You have a 45 minute period in which to arrive, have the wedding and take photographs.  Your fee includes the officiant, the venue, the personalized ceremony,  time for photos and pre-wedding consulation.

Sweetheart Chapel's Small Wedding for you and six guests - $350

Add in a Sand Ceremony $375

The Process

Upon receiving your deposit or payment, the basic ceremony is sent along to you via email.  There are several vow options, suggestions for readings, elements (such as a unity candle, sand ceremony or other additions.)  Once you have a chance to review the material, there is a phone or email consultation with Bishop Deb to personalize it to your wishes.  All details will be finalized before the Big Day.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have been divorced outside of Canada, there is an important step before you are eligible for a wedding license. Please visit the FAQ page for more information on this.

We can recommend B&Bs, hotels, flower shops, photographers and area restaurants to make your occasion even more perfect. You may choose to have a romantic horse and carriage ride at the conclusion of your wedding -- they'll pick you up at the door!

What to Bring

You'll need an Ontario wedding license. For information on where to obtain one, please refer to the FAQ page. And the rings, camera, etc.

Please arrive five or ten minutes before your appointed time. There is ample space in the driveway for your vehicle, so you do not have to worry about parking, which can be challenging in the summertime.  Just come around to the rear entrance and Bishop Deb will greet you!

Please note that this is our home, and while there is a washroom available for your use, we do not have a change room. We expect that couples will arrive wedding-ready.

Flowers - If you are not planning on bringing flowers, we can lend you some lovely silk flowers for the Bride and Maid of Honor for the occasion.


Your wedding must be prepaid (a $100 deposit is fine) and prebooked.

Upon the receipt of your paypal payment or electronic money transfer, your requested date and time will be confirmed via email. Payments are non-refundable. The balance may be paid by phone or Paypal before the ceremony or in cash the day of the wedding.


  • 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.

Pay Securely through Paypal
