Now that you’ve booked your stunning wedding venue and killer DJ, the next step is to decide who will officiate the ceremony.
Our wedding clients almost undoubtedly ask us for a recommendation for an officiant. Here are the names we give out consistently for ceremonies in Toronto and surrounding area:
Martin Frith from Ceremonies With Choice – Martin (photo above, at the Royal Conservatory) is a secular humanist wedding officiant, so his clients are typically non-religious, many from mixed faiths and/or same-sex. He is a kind and compassionate man, and his ceremonies reflect his desire to make this special part of the day memorable and meaningful. We’ve worked with him dozens of times, and are always happy to do so. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Jeremy Citron from All You Need Is Love – Jeremy (photo above, at the Rosetta McClain Gardens) is a congregational minister, so he can bring the religious angle into the ceremony if you like. He is originally from Wales, so he has a soothing accent giving his ceremonies a formal, dignified air. He’s also just the right amount of humour to keep it light, without creating a comedy-hour vibe. Jeremy was the officiant at weddings for some of our DJs and our DJs family members, so we trust him infinitely. Contact email@example.com
If Martin and Jeremy are both booked up for your date, don’t despair! Here are a few more trustworthy options for officiants we’ve worked with in the past:
Mark Groleau, Unboring Weddings. We met Mark (seen laughing in featured header photo) a few years ago on a wedding at the Berkeley Field House when he was part of the Young Hip & Married roster. He’s now found success branching out on his own with modern urban couples.
Sarah Bunnett-Gibson, firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ve worked with Sarah (above) many times in Toronto, most recently at the Hotel Ocho on Spadina. She’s calm and creative, and has years of experience.
Sarah Boyer Messenger, email@example.com. Sarah is another Humanist we’ve enjoyed working with. She has a great sense of humour, and can boast having done ceremonies at the ACC and the Rogers Centre for sports fans. She is seen most recently in the photo above at the Gladstone Hotel.
Dennis Curley, firstname.lastname@example.org. We worked with Dennis on a wedding last year at the Chateaux Des Charmes in Niagara wine country. He was hilarious, and is highly recommended by the planning team at Distinct Occasions.
Wayde Salmon, Weddings By Wayde. We worked with Wayde in the Distillery at Archeo, where he spoke elegantly and with sincerity. He’s also a very warm person, and would be a solid choice.
