Bride and Groom Feet in Wedding Marriage Ceremony

The Municipality of South Dundas offers the services of an experienced Wedding Officiant to make your day as special as possible.

Civil marriage ceremonies are officiated by Brenda Brunt, Municipal Clerk and Marriage Commissioner and can be performed at the Municipal Offices or a location of your choosing.

A pre-ceremony meeting must be scheduled with the Marriage Commissioner in order to provide the proper service and to prepare a personalized wedding experience. Couples are encouraged to book their pre-ceremony meeting and their wedding date well in advance to avoid disappointment and ensure services are available on your preferred date, and to your highest expectations.


The cost of a civil marriage ceremony performed by the Municipal Marriage Commissioner is to be paid in advance of the marriage ceremony by cash, cheque or debit.

The cost of the ceremony is $300, payable to the Municipality of South Dundas.

*Please note that the above fees do not include the cost of the Marriage Licence. A Marriage License costs $125.
