    It was a very beautiful and intimate ceremony

    Nick is very professional and open minded. We prefered more of a celtic/pagan cerwmony and it qas absolutely beautiful. His words were heartfelt and clear. Would highly recommend.

    Absolutely amazing!

    Nick was a pleasure to work with. He was very accommodating when we had to postpone our ceremony a couple times due to various reasons. Our wedding was cancelled in May due to Covid so we had a small backyard ceremony which Nick officiated. He was so kind and friendly, it didn't feel like we met him for the first time. Also, he followed all social distancing protocols and ensured we had a safe but fun wedding. He was very communicative throughout the process and answered all my questions. Highly recommend Nick to anyone looking for an officiant! We couldn't have gotten married without him during these Covid times and I'd be forever grateful he was able to marry us. Thank you Nick!!

    Courteous, Professional & Flexible

    Nick was kind enough to come to our apartment to hold our wedding according to the provincial and federal rules of social distancing. Apart from that, he was very courteous and ensured that everyone present (people attending virtually included) were able to hear everything clearly and participate. He is organized and very flexible if you communicate clearly. I would highly recommend him for any wedding ceremony as he is very reliable!

    A warm welcome to starting our new life together

    Having Dr. Nick be our officiant during the difficult time of COVID-19 was a warm welcome to starting our new life together. Dr. Nick was very professional and together we made the proper arrangements to handle the social distancing requirements outlined by the government for COVID-19. When he arrived, his warm character reassured us that this was a moment we would share for the rest of our lives. I would 100% recommend Dr. Nick for anyone requiring an officiant.

    Calm and soothing, never in a hurry

    Dr Nick was the officiant for our Covid virtual wedding on May 15th, and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We first reached out to him less than 2 weeks in advance, but only confirmed our ceremony would take place 48 hours before. Nick was accommodating throughout the whole process - easy to get in touch with, calm, cool and collected, and not at all phased about our last moment plans. He made the process simple when going through our options, and what to expect regarding vows/ring exchange. Such a soothing personality. The day of he was punctual, made our virtual guest feel included by introducing himself, and never rushed one moment of the ceremony making it a memorable experience. I'd highly recommend Nick for your wedding.

    Excellent service and advice

    He took the nervousness away and provided options which were not thought of. Provided a service that blended our families together with a unique symbolism.

In short, I'm a semi-retired clergyman who has successfully worked with hundreds of individuals and families. Please visit my website for more detailed information about my professional background.

I earned my Doctorate in Philosophy at Trent University But, donโ€™t worry, I never have and donโ€™t plan to ever sound like an absent-minded philosopher!

I am never in a hurry. I have no personal agenda or beliefs to promote. Your point of view is the only thing that matters.

You may wonder, why are you doing this work, Nick? Thanks for asking the question. I have loved working in the churches and organizations I have served, including as a university chaplain. At age 63, I now wish to focus most of my time on academic work. But, I do still feel very passionate about meeting people at the most important times of their lives. That is why I continue to officiate at weddings and funerals.
