Where It All Started
Welcome to my website!
I am a Manitoba Marriage Commissioner who has been officiating at weddings for 8+ years. I live in the City of Winnipeg and I am willing to travel within the Province of Manitoba.
I offer Customized Wedding Ceremonies, Legalization Ceremonies, and Vow Renewals. I work with my clients to ensure they have the ceremony they envision. Special ceremonies that can be added to your basic ceremony are included in the cost. Examples are: Unity Candle Ceremony; Sand/Wax bead Ceremony; Hand-Fasting; Fight Box/Love Letter; Jumping the Broom; Tree Planting. If there is a special ceremony you wish to incorporate into your ceremony……please ask and we will work together.
I love working with my clients to ensure their wedding day is special for them. I have a very open mind and will do my best to ensure your day is as you dreamed.

“I just wanted to say once again thank you so much. You did a amazing job and everyone loved the ceremony!”
“I would have liked to properly thank you for all that you did for us, but It was such a emotional day I couldn’t think straight.
You are such a wonderful person, I knew from the moment Cory and I met you, that you were the perfect person to marry us. You helped make every step of the way so special. Thank you Marlene!
“Marlene was great! Easy going. Had our best interests at heart. Kind Spirit, Caring, Puntual, Calm. Wonderful Job!”
“The service, programming, and professionalism were bar none! I would recommend Marlene Miller to anyone.”

“We like Marlene’s service. She is responsible, professional and flexible. She is very nice and patient. We had a lovely wedding with her. I will recommend her to my friends.”
“Marlene Miller is a pure joy! My wife and I were married the week after our daughter’s wedding and we were fortunate to have Marlene officiate both ceremonies. Our daughter’s wedding occurred in a park and ours in our backyard under a tent sheltered from the rain. She handled the different scenarios with professionalism, enthusiasm and grace. Marlene was extremely helpful in assisting with the preparation of our vows that best suited who we are. Her calming influence and guidance provided us with a seamless and stress-free experience and her warm and friendly demeanour enhanced the joyous atmosphere of our special day. All that Marlene does clearly demonstrates the passion she has for her work. Marlene was more than a marriage commissioner to us – she was like part of the family! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a memorable wedding.”
“Marlene was wonderful. Her easy, relaxed approach made getting everything right very easy. She was helpful, had great suggestions and by asking the right questions and getting to know us, was able to envision and create a perfect wedding. Marlene arrived ahead of time to go over the ceremony timing and answer any last minute questions. The ceremony went off without a hitch and Marlene was professional and friendly. She looked after filing the signed documents with the powers that be so that our marriage certificate would be completed and sent to us. We highly recommend Marlene to anyone who is looking for a Marriage Commissioner.”
“Couldn’t of asked for anyone better!”
“Marlene was very organized and very easy to work with! She helped make our day that much more special!”
“I would recommend Marlene to other friends she was great thank you again Debbie and Andrew.”

~A copy of the wedding license is not automatically sent to you by Vital Statistics. You must fill out an application form and send it to Vital Statistics. If you have the form completed on the date of the wedding I will be happy to include this document with the copy of the license that I submit to Vital Statistics.

DUE TO COVID 19 YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING:
1) In Manitoba only - marriages can still take place as long as there are no more than 10 persons in attendance and social distancing must be adhered to.
2) There are limited License issuers currently. Make sure you are in contact with one and have a license reserved if possible. I recommend you wait until a few days before to purchase the license. You must purchase the license 24 hours ahead of the ceremony time.
3) If you plan to postpone your wedding to a later date check with your Marriage Commissioner and tentatively secure your back up date.
