Ottawa Wedding Chapels for a Romantic Affair

Want to get married right now but the thought of having it done at City Hall turns you off? Ottawa has four wedding chapels that cater to small ‘right-now’ weddings.

When you think Wedding Chapelthe city of Las Vegas with its over 50 locations comes to mind. Las Vegas hosts over 100,000 weddings per year and is one of the most popular spots to get married. In Las Vegas style, you can choose from just about any theme for a chapel. They even have a traveling wedding chapel where you get married on the tailgate of a van.

In contrast, Ottawa has about 5000 weddings performed per year. Couples who want to elope or have a quick weekday wedding can go to City Hall. City Hall may seem a little impersonal for some brides and grooms. For something more romantic, there are four wedding chapels within city limits which offer  a variety of settings and can even have a little champagne pouring for your moment. All four have on-location officiants to legally marry you.
