Justice of the Peace Fees
My fees as a Justice of the Peace are set by the Government of Nova Scotia, and are flat rates. The fees are as follows:
Wedding Ceremony: $200
Rehearsal (optional): $100
Travel Expenses: Mileage: 45.85 cents a kilometre (each way) from my home in Middle River (near Baddeck) to the venue, plus any applicable parking, tolls or ferry charges.
Please note that once the wedding ceremony has been performed there are NO refunds of J.P. fees or travel expenses.
A NON-REFUNDABLE booking deposit of $100 is due, in cash, when we meet to discuss your Marriage Licence paperwork. The balance of all fees is due the week prior to the wedding date.
