    Amazing Officiant

    From the very first interaction my husband and I had with Garry, we knew he was the officant we wanted for the wedding. He was professional, expereinced in the industry and was such an incredible help with organzing our ceremony.

    With Garry we got to customize our entire ceremony. He had great content to chose from but he also allowed us to add in anything we wanted (readings, poems, etc.) to make our ceremony meaningful.

    Garry totally took charge of the rehersal with a relaxed and calm demeanor. He made my husband and I feel listened to and he helped us get our wedding party all on the same page with the ceremony. Garry walked through the rehersal as many times as I (the bride) needed, he made it very clear that if I wasnt happy with something we could change it.

    On our wedding day, Garry was perfect, he showed up in a suit and tie, with lots of time to spare and made sure my husband and I were absolutely ready before we began the ceremony. He ran the ceremony perfectly, he lightened the mood up after our sappy vows and gave our guests the lovliest ceremony to witness.

    If there is one thing I can say about Garry its that I never had to worry about him. As a bride there were a million things running through my head for like a whole year before the wedding; but with Garry, I never had to send a dreaded "follow up email" or have to worry about if he'd be on time for the rehersal or ceremony. He was so incredibly easy to work with.

    With Garry you dont just get an officiant, you get someone who truely cares about you and will go the extra mile to make your wedding day exactly how you want it to be. He is worth every penny, he made our ceremony one-of-a-kind and I cant thank him enough for that.

    Wonderful officiant

    Mr. Garry Francis made out whole day special. Even before that he was quick to respond to my emails and inquiries. Made payment simple through e-transfer. Allowed us to do our simple quick ceremony in his home in a beautiful room. Everything was always smooth, simple and easy. And when planning for such a huge event, anything that can take away any worries or stress is truly a gift. I would recommend him to anyone searching for an officiant to make their day special.

    Garry was very professional and a pleasure to work with right from the beginning. He brought a great vibe in our ceremony. He is very great at what he does that he was able to adapt with the slightly challenging weather condition during our outdoor ceremony. it was a perfect day with overcast and rain just waiting to happen, Garry was able to execute a great short and sweet ceremony and perfectly timing it with the rain that was about to happen.

    A Lot of our guests have also commented on how funny he is which also set the tone in our intimate wedding. All in all, we had a great wedding ceremony!!

    Thank you so much Reverend Garry Francis for being such a gem and adding great value and humour to our wedding!
