It's alleged a woman officiating at a marriage ceremony in southwestern Ontario solemnized the sacred vows with no legal authority and under a false name.
Ontario Provincial Police say charges have been filed after an investigation began in August into the "performance of the solemnization of a marriage" in Norwich in June 2013.
They allege the ceremony was presided over by a woman calling herself Dale Brewster, but say that wasn't really her name.
Dale Reade, 61, of London, Ont., faces charges of pretending to solemnize marriage without lawful authority, fraud under $5,000, uttering a forged document and personation with intent.
OPP say Reade, who is to appear in court on Nov. 4, was the past operator of the Crystal Wedding Chapel.
