Making Your Ceremony Stand Out
Wedding Ceremonies Available:
Simply put, if you want your guests and families to remember your wedding ceremony as the very best that they ever experienced in their lives, then you have found the right fit for your wedding celebrant and officiant.
With our over 25 years of combined experience, we have created and officiated at many, many wedding ceremonies throughout the greater Ottawa Region.
For years, we have been the first choice recommendation as officiants by most leading Ottawa wedding Industry professionals (wedding planners, photographers, videographers and ceremony venues, DJ's) due to our unique officiation style for having delivered the most enjoyable wedding cermony experience that attendees have ever experienced in their lives.
This status was formally recognized when we were selected as the very first recipients of the Ottawa Wedding Professionals Award for Best Officiants. Considering that there are over 1,250 licensed wedding officiants in the Ottawa area, this is a rare honour for which to have been bestowed.
We have been registered wedding officiants since 2004, licensed under the Marriage Act by the Registrar General of the Province of Ontario having been ordained, as a lay chaplain and as a minister, respectively. Just as you are familiar with other professionals who specialize in one particular area, we are specialists in that our sole focus is the design and celebration of highly enjoyable and memorable ceremonies.

We have each been actively involved over the years in a number of community development and charitable initiatives, including Scouts Canada and Friends of the Hospice. Working regularly at the Stittsville Food Bank has been one of our activities for over 20 years. We have also been extensively involved in theatrical productions for many years, culminating with the acclaimed presentations of the semi-professional GOYA Theatre at Centrepointe Theatre each year. From this theatrical experience, we have borrowed many of the innovative principles which we have introduced to the weddings at which we officiate. The freshness that this brings to ceremonies have been universally applauded by the ceremony attendees as well as the wedding couples themselves. It adds such an engaging dimension that the guests feel so connected and involved in all aspects of their ceremonies.
So if you want the peace of mind that comes from having the most experienced and innovative officiants in Ottawa guiding you through your ceremony and rehearsal planning, then you need to contact us as soon as you have fixed your wedding date and venue.
