Vow renewals at our Garden Gazebo, Niagara 0n the Lake
Come to the Garden!
What could be more romantic than a loving couple stealing away for an intimate wedding? Exchange your vows with your witnesses or in our beautiful and private "Sweetheart Garden Gazebo."
Weekends, weekdays, short notice... Bishop Deb can usually accommodate your desire for a ceremony, working within your timeframe.
This season, all of our ceremonies will take place outdoors at the Garden Gazebo. There is no access to washroom facilities.
The Gazebo is available to you for 30 minutes. This allows time for your arrival, the wedding and photographs. The Elopement ceremony is intentionally small - just for you and two witnesses. It is a meaningful, and just fifteen-minutes in length, perfect for the couple who wants something simple.
You have a choice of contemporary or traditional vows or you are welcome to offer your own vows. Deborah, or one of the witnesses, can take pictures with your camera to capture the happy event. There is the option of including our in-house photographer for $150. You receive your photos on a USB stick at departure. Speak with Deborah to arrange this.
What about witnesses?
You may bring along two witnesses. If it is only the two of you, we can arrange witnesses for an additional fee of $30 per witness.
Cost for the basic Elopement Ceremony and Gazebo: $300
What We Need When You Book

What to Bring?
You'll need an Ontario wedding license. For information on where to obtain one, please refer to the FAQ page.
Please arrive five or ten minutes before your appointed time. There is a space in the driveway for your vehicle, so you do not have to worry about parking, which can be challenging in the summertime. 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.
Your wedding must be prepaid (a $100 deposit is fine) and prebooked. This is a non-refundable payment.
We can accept an e-transfer, VISA or Mastercard payment over the phone through Square, if you do not wish to use Paypal. Simply call 905-468-9502 and speak with Bishop Deb. It will appear on your credit card statement as "The Angel Ladies."
Upon the receipt of your credit card payment, email 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.
For those paying by cheque, please call to express your preference for date and time and provide an email address. Send payments payable to "Reverend Deborah Vaughan" to Box 1856, Niagara-on-the-Lake, On L0S1J0
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.
