    Garry is amazing! Highly recommended.

    Garry was amazing! From the consultation right up to the wedding, he was incredible. For the rehearsal, Garry made everything seem very straight forward and stress free for us. He even brought up a few excellent points we never would have thought of. On the day of our ceremony, Garry was extremely punctual. He showed up ready to rock! He did an excellent job of keeping my husband calm, confident and excited for the ceremony to start. We can't thank Garry enough for his beautiful words, the service and everything else he did for us to make our day even more special! Highly, highly recommend Garry.

    It was my pleasure and a great delight to officiate for Morgan & Matthew! Their venue setting in beautiful Bowmanville was an incredible spot and worked perfect for their big day. Their ceremony was filled with so much laughter...I was still laughing after the ceremony. Wishing them a life time of happiness and may they stay together forever!

    Highly recommend!

    We had Garry for our wedding in August and chose his ‘Document Signing’ package as we had a family member perform the ceremony on the day. Garry was very professional and ensured all the legal requirements were met for our marriage. He was very pleasant to deal with in the lead-up to the day and I would highly recommend him for others looking for an officiant.

    Great Ceremony!

    Garry was wonderful to work with and ran a great ceremony. He checked in with us a few times leading up to the wedding, and the ceremony was exactly what we were looking for. It was a great experience overall :)

    I still vividly remember your wedding on Dec. 30th 2018! The entire event was absolutely beautiful! The bride was beautiful, the venue was awesome and Sean was one of the coolest grooms I've ever encountered. You are Sean are a "top shelf" couple made for each other! Enjoy married life!

    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.
