Notice. A minimum of 60 days’ notice is required to make a wedding reservation in Trinity College Chapel.
Priority Access. Priority for weddings will be given to Trinity graduates and their family members.
Officiants. The chaplain works in co-operation with the Anglican clergy at Trinity College and the ecumenical association of chaplains at the University of Toronto. If you would like to invite a visiting clergy person to officiate, he or she must communicate in writing to the chaplain a desire to do so.

Anglican clergy from outside the Diocese of Toronto should contact the Bishop’s Office 416-363-6021, ext. 250.
Courtesy Access. Courtesy access will be extended to Christian clergy (i.e. ordained in a denomination associated with the Canadian Council of Churches, the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, or with the Toronto Catholic Conference).
Access to Grounds. Photographs may be taken in the chapel or vicinity after the ceremony is over.

Sites on the wider campus are under the jurisdiction of the Office for Space Management of the University of Toronto: 416-978-2187. The university charges for photography permits.
Receptions. Some of the college’s facilities (e.g., Seeley Hall, the Buttery) are often available for wedding receptions. Appropriate arrangements may be made through Event Services & Catering at 416-978-8680 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
