Canmore Wedding Planning

Canmore Alberta

Canmore is a town in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, west of Calgary. It’s known for craggy summits like the Three Sisters and Ha Ling Peak.

With such amazing natural outdoor venues, such as Tunnel Mountain Reservoir and the Rundleview Parkette your day will be pure magic set amongst the snowy peaks on the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Caving

Caving is a fantastic activity that can be enjoyed year-round! The internal temperature of the caves remains constant even in Winter! Take you for a natural history tour of the Rat’s Nest Cave, under Grotto Mountain. Tour the 4km cave created by the meltwaters of ancient glaciers.

Kayaking

Kayaking on the lakes around Banff town are an excellent way to not only enjoy the natural beauty of Banff National Park in serene settings, but also to observe the area’s wildlife in their natural habitat. It’s also an excellent opportunity to laze away an afternoon fishing.

White Water Rafting

There are numerous rapids, such as, “Roller Coaster”, “Hopi Hole”, “Goat Rapid” and “Twin Peaks” that are certain to leave you with big smiles. The most famous rapid is known throughout the area…the “Portage” and “Shotgun” rapids! (Cue dramatic music!) Long, continuous, quick and tricky, this section of river is, without question, the most popular and memorable section of true class IV to IV+ rafting in the Alberta area.

 

Travel Documents

Entering Canada is simple for the most part.  All that is required is a Passport from your Country of residence.

Alberta Marriage Law

GETTING YOUR CANMORE AND BANFF, ALBERTA MARRIAGE LICENSE If you’re getting married in Banff National Park or Canmore, you’ll be getting a marriage certificate issued by the province of Alberta. The requirements for getting an Alberta certificate are pretty basic. The license is valid for three months from the date of issue.

• Proof of identification

Civil marriage ceremonies can be conducted at any location

Two witnesses of at least 18 years of age are required for the ceremony. It is not necessary that the witnesses have prior knowledge of the couple being married

Upon the granting of Royal Assent to the federal Civil Marriage Act, same-sex marriage is legal in Alberta as of July 20, 2005.

Language

The people living in this area are Anglophone Canadians and therefore speak Canadian English.  Canadian National Parks are operated under Federal jurisdiction, and therefore have signs, brochures and (theoretically) all services in both French and English, as well as universally understandable pictograms.  Banff is a major international destination, and tourist industry recognizes the role of international visitors; tourist services are usually available in Japanese and German, and increasingly in languages such as Mandarin and Spanish.

Currency

In all of Canada the currency is the Canadian dollar, please see your local currency conversion or contact your local bank for current currency exchange rates.
