Here’s why your Zoom wedding might not stand up in court (Financial Post)
From the Financial Post – Spring is wedding season — or at least it was, before the pandemic hit.
Couples who have had venues booked and plans in place for many months have been faced with a choice of either postponing their marriages indefinitely or making alternative plans.
In Ontario, provincial regulations preclude gatherings of more than five people unless they are from a “single household,” making even the smallest wedding a practical impossibility. Under Ontario’s Marriage Act, in order to have a valid marriage, the couple needs a licence, an officiant and two witnesses, and the wedding must take place “in the presence of” the officiant and the witnesses.
