hi archyive

Celebrate your special day in our sanctuary, on the front lawn or at a venue of your choice!

Please contact the church office to arrange your wedding.  We ensure that everyone is safe by following the required COVID protocols.

 

Our fees are modest, reasonable, and flexible. We are not a company, like others who provide wedding services. We are a Church that has been here for over 173 years, and will be here in the future to serve you.

We offer Civil, Non Denomination or Religious services

Why go to Town Hall we would be pleased to marry you at your location or ours? Rev. Gill, who performs most of our wedding ceremonies is in a long-term ministry here at Walton. He delights in Baptising children of the couples he has married.

Wedding Fees

The fees are based upon the size of the wedding, the amount of staff (musicians, caretaker/coordinator etc.) and whether or not there is a rehearsal.

Please note a $175.00 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking, and this is deducted from the total fee at the time of full payment.

Our all-inclusive fees for weddings are as follows:

  • For offsite weddings (your location):
    • Without rehearsal – $195.00 plus $0.43 per km for mileage outside the local Bronte area
    • With a rehearsal – $225.00 plus $0.43 per km for mileage outside the local Bronte area
  • Our on-site weddings (at Walton Church):
    • Without rehearsal – $410
    • With a rehearsal – $520

The Church wedding fees are even less for small weddings of less than 15 people in total and ones that you do not choose to have a fully personalized service.

All fees are available upon request.

Music fees

The above fees for on-site weddings include the free use of our sound system for music if you supply a person to play from an iPhone or iPad. If you need assistance playing your music on our system, the fee is $40.00.

If you choose live music as an option, it is an additional charge to what is listed above. It begins at $175.00 for a Walton church organist/pianist.

Candles

We also have optional use of brass candelabras and candles, rental beginning at $25.00.

Fee deadline

Fees are required to be paid at the Church office in cash or a cheque dated 1 month before the wedding date.

Walton United would be thrilled to be a part of your special wedding day! Weddings are a wonderful celebration of love blessed by God.

Our Wedding Officiant-Minister is a full-time Ordained Minister, licensed by the United Church of Canada and the Province of Ontario. His career is to be a Minister. We have no weekend clergy who do other things, rather than Wedding Officiant-Minister, Monday to Friday.

Weddings @ Walton United Church

We offer each couple the choice of eight booklets of different services, plus various websites to use for ideas to choose your personalized service. You are free to completely write your wedding ceremony.

There is the option of lighting candles, giving roses, blowing bubbles, drinking from the Unity Cup, lighting of a Unity Candle, using wedding programs, flower girls throwing silk flowers when they come down the aisle, plus other personal ideas you may desire.

Your service is your service, not what someone else has used. Our wedding services are usually 20-35 minutes long but can vary to meet your taste. We usually book our services 1½ hours apart rather than the common custom of 1 hour apart.

If you choose to have a rehearsal, they run 45 minutes to one hour long, instead of the usual 20 minutes. They can be the day before or earlier in the week. This is to help you and your party feel more at ease.

There is considerable written material, such as “How to Usher”, sent to you well before the service, to help familiarize you and your attendants with the wedding day plans. Every Bride and Groom gets a copy of their service for their wedding album.

All our staff constantly strive to make your service your statement of your love and commitment that you would love expressed on your marriage day.
