Couples will now be able to tie the knot at Niagara Falls City Hall.
City Council passed a motion to allow civil marriage ceremonies at their meeting last night.
Several Niagara municipalities already offer the service; including St. Catharines, Welland, Fort Erie, Grimsby, Thorold and Pelham.
Their fees range between $200 and $300, making it a cheaper alternative to costly wedding ceremonies.
The Marriage Act changed about 15 years ago, giving municipal clerks the power to perform civil marriages.
