Civil Ceremonies

The Township of Huron-Kinloss provides Civil Ceremonies for couples wishing to marry in a service without reference to God or a Higher Being. Our Civil Marriages allow you to personalize your wedding ceremony making it as simple or as special as you wish.


The Township has four commissioners performing the wedding ceremonies. Our Marriage Commissioners are delighted to perform your wedding ceremony at the beach, in your backyard, in a park, or any reasonable location of your choice. Together with you, they will design a ceremony that will make your special day one to remember.
