My experience with Young Hip & Married was beyond amazing. They provided me with everything I needed. Our officiant Rhona is one of the most beautiful souls. She was so dedicated to making our day unique and special; we felt supported and like our wedding and ideas mattered. Amber Leigh was our photographer and we had such an amazing experience with her. She had us laughing, and caught some of our most special moments. I would highly recommended these two to anyone looking to make their wedding day special.

We wanted a simple elopement style wedding and chose the Intimate Elopement and Photography package. Our officiant Melinda and photographer Jade were both fantastic and easy to work with, and made our ceremony memorable and totally stress free.

We went with the intimate elopement + photography package from Young Hip & Married, because they catered to all the major parts of planning. Every aspect of the service rendered was fantastic, from the introduction, to getting the right officiant (Wade) and photographer (John). We absolutely appreciated this service and would recommend to friends and family in the future.

Shalom made the whole process easy and simple and gave us advice on what we needed to do leading up to our ceremony. Day of, she was amazing and sweet to work with and helped us figure out what were were doing!

I love that we got paired with our photographer, Nassim, as well who gave us some amazing photos of our special day. I 100% believe and will vouch that using Young Hip and Married is worth the price and would recommend their packages to anyone who is looking for wedding vendors.

I am so happy that I chose Young Hip & Married. Our officiant, Erika Enns, was amazing. She’s such a lovely person and she was the perfect fit for our ceremony. And our photographer Emily Nicole – she guided us through our photoshoot and now we have very beautiful photos from our wedding. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for an officiant & photographer – all in one place. Everything was so easy to arrange. I just loved it. A huge thank you to all.

What's Included

Meet your Young Hip & Married wedding officiant at your chosen location (not sure where to go? We can help!) for a simple “gather and wed” style ceremony. This does not include an aisle walk, ceremony decor or set up.

Your wedding officiant will provide a pre-written elopement script that will give you a short, but sweet, moment to solidify your marriage. You may also add your own vows. (Apx 5-10 minutes in length)

You’ll have peace of mind knowing exactly what your officiant is going to be saying. No surprises on the big day!

Of course, your Young Hip & Married officiant is going to show up on the day of your elopement to actually officiate the ceremony. They’ll even get there early so you have nothing to sweat about.

Our Intimate Elopement includes up to 10 guests. Want to invite a few more? Our Intimate Elopement Plus includes 11-20 guests for an additional fee. Note that the couple, vendors and children under 2 don’t count towards the guest limit.

Your elopement photographer will capture all of the best moments of your elopement experience and deliver 50+ fully-retouched high-resolution images in an online gallery within five weeks of your wedding date. Images will be available for instant download and have a print release. Want more photography time? Ask us for a quote.

Our licensed officiants will inform you of the legal requirements of your wedding, sign your marriage licence and register it with the appropriate governing body so you can be officially and legally wed.

Enjoy access to our network of wedding professionals and resources.

Our videography partners will capture every important memory so you can remember the best moments of your elopement forever. Bonus? We coordinate everything so you don’t have to stress about finding, hiring or organizing more vendors.

We wanted an elopement that was quick, simple, and absolutely zero stress. We messaged a couple different companies and YH&M easily stood out as the best option. They responded quickly, booked our date immediately and paired us with some amazing folks.

Lauren, our officiant, is such a pure soul and John Bello, our photographer, went above and beyond expectations. We went from “let’s get married” to “Mr. and Mrs.” in under 2 months thanks to YH&M. Highly recommend if a memorable elopement is what you’re looking for.

It all started when we hired YH&M to help us plan a simple and personalized wedding. Rich officiated our marriage on January 28th 2024 in Banff. Although we didn’t meet Rich until the ceremony, he made us feel like we were old friends – very welcoming and comfortable!

He created a beautiful memory filled with love and warmth around us, which made the wedding vibe a lot easy, resulting in an absolute beautiful ceremony. Deanna photography skills is superb.

We are so pleased to work with you and every single step of the way was seamless, smooth and stress-free. Your warm and approachable nature made the ceremony all the more special! We would recommend you guys a thousand times over.

Our day was perfect! Thank you Sarah (officiant) and Deanna (photographer). If you want a stress free wedding this is just for you! This is the company to go with! We couldn’t be happier with how our day went and would not change a thing. Thank you all (Sarah, Deanna, and the whole crew at Young Hip and Married) for making our day.

The team at YH&M were very helpful and accommodating as we planned our elopement. They made every effort to connect us with a queer officiant to give our ceremony some extra magic and did they ever deliver!

Curt Allison personalized our ceremony to reflect our relationship and we will forever remember the love and care that he brought to our special day. John Bello was our photographer and was just as fantastic to share our day with. He captured some incredibly breathtaking photos that we will cherish forever. We could not have asked for a better ceremony and we are grateful for the YH&M team in making that happen for us!

Young Hip & Married was a wonderful vendor to work with! My husband and I chose an elopement package, which included the officiant and photographer, and had a small outdoor ceremony with close family. It was perfect. Coordinating with the officiant and photographer was super easy, communication was always open and everything was done conveniently via email.

Lonnie’s ceremony script was beautiful, and allowed for us to make our own few changes and add our own vows. Short, sweet and romantic, and our photos by Erica turned out amazing!!
