Get married in City Hall's Council Chamber with a micro-wedding.

Micro-weddings inside of City Hall are 30-minute ceremonies that are intended to be short indoor events for couples, officiants, and witnesses.

Our micro-wedding pilot program began outdoors on the Helena Gutteridge Plaza in May 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to popular demand, it is now a permanent indoor program at Vancouver City Hall.
