WEDDINGS AND HONEYMOONS – NIAGARA FALLS
Niagara Falls has been Canada’s Honeymoon capital for over 200 years. Hundreds of Canadians are married or have their honeymoon at the beautiful and romantic Niagara Falls every year. For anyone outside of Canada it is a wonderful venue for your wedding and honeymoon too.
Niagara Falls has an abundance of natural beauty, the whole of the Niagara Peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Niagara Parkway is said by many to be the most scenic and beautiful in the world.
The Falls which are one of the wonders of the world would make a superb backdrop for your wedding photographs. If yours is a small wedding party, arrangements can be made to hold the service at one of the lookout points too. This would make a truly dramatic setting for any wedding.
Niagara Falls has many top class Hotels available for weddings and honeymoons. Our Travel Advice would be to chose a Hotel on the Canadian side of the Falls rather than the American side as the views are much better. It is possible to obtain a room with a balcony and double jacuzzi overlooking the American and Bridal Veil Falls with side views of the Horseshoe Falls. This is a fabulous sight during the day and at night with the Falls lit up, it makes for a very romantic backdrop.
For all those who would like to Honeymoon at the Falls there is plenty to see and do to make your stay in Canada an enjoyable one. Apart from viewing the Falls themselves there are plenty of other sights to see. A boat trip on the “Maid of the Mist” is a must so you can see the Falls up close and personal. Other sights include: Scenic Trolley rides, the Imax Theatre, the Casino, the Aquarium of Niagara, Observation Tower, Adventure Theatre, Discovery Center, Old Fort Niagara, Niagara Wax Museum, Canal Cruises, Golf courses, Wineries, many restaurants and bars, great shopping and if you venture further into Canada you can take a trip to Toronto and some of the interesting and picturesque small towns in the area.
For those overseas visitors wishing to marry in Niagara Falls, Canada here is some necessary information you will need to make your arrangements:
“You’ll first need to obtain a marriage license, available for $100CAN, which must be paid in cash. You each need to show two official pieces of identification such as a passport, birth certificate, or driver’s license. Also, if either of you have been previously married, you’ll need to show official proof of divorce or death of previous spouse. NOTE: If your divorce was granted outside of Canada, you’ll need to follow some additional procedures to get your divorce certified. Allow extra time for this; give the Clerk’s office a call for all the details. Also NOTE: same sex marriages are legal in Ontario.
You can get your license from the Clerks Department at City Hall, 4310 Queen Street, Niagara Falls, Ontario, telephone 905-356-7521. Your marriage license is valid for three months. The office is open weekdays 8:30 am to 4 pm.”
Whether you decide to be married in a church, chapel, by the Falls, in a helicopter or one of the many Hotel venues, we are sure it will be a memorable and very special occasion to be married at Niagara Falls.
