Emma Ibbetson · Getting married on 21/11/2020
Smooth sailing even during a pandemic
Garry helped us get married yesterday, and it was a dream come true even as we adapted to a small intimate ceremony in our backyard. Gary is responsive to any inquiries and always follows up. I was genuinely (and pleasantly) surprised by how quick he is to respond to my messages over the course of the uncertainty of the ceremony. When Gary came yesterday he was professional, friendly and always smiling. We couldn't recommend him enough.Sent on 09/08/2020

Prompt, Professional and beyond Pleasant
I had the opportunity to work with Garry over the weekend at an intimate backyard wedding. As a Wedding Planner, I work with many officiants, Garry really left a great impression right from the first email he sent me - his enthusiasm jumped out of the text and I knew right away I would love working with him! Upon arrival he was prompt and professional, he knew exactly what he had to do right from the get go. I really appreciated how quickly he would always respond to my email and I think the time capsule he offers is such a unique twist to your average ceremony! I hope to have the opportunity to work with Garry again soon!Sent on 10/08/2020

Personal and Professional
I have worked with Garry Francis for a few years at the funeral home. I would call on him time and time again to officiate funeral services for grieving families. He would always deliver a wonderful, meaningful and personal service for the families. When my fiancé and I decided to get married, Garry Francis was the first person I thought of contacting to help us on our big day. Despite COVID-19 disrupting our original plans to wed, Garry Francis was extremely flexible and accommodating and went with the flow as our plans changed. Garry officiated our civil ceremony on Sunday May 24, 2020. We chose the Sweet & Simple service and were not disappointed. His delivery of the service was beautifully done and still had a personal feel. We also purchased a lovely time capsule from Garry to commemorate our small scale big day. The package comes in a nicely decorated box with a bottle of wine, two glasses, his & hers card to record the reasons why we love each other/chose each other, a certificate to document this milestone and a couple of decorative items. We could not be happier with Garry Francis’ services and would highly recommend him to any couples that are looking to have a small or big scale ceremony.Sent on 30/05/2020

Private wedding ceremony
More than pleased with Garry's service. He was professional & warm hearted. I was shocked he was able to accommodate us on such short notice. The ceremony was private and held in a nicely set-up room in his home. It was everything I had wished for. Thanks again Garry, you were great 🥂.Sent on 17/03/2020
Garry Francis Officiating Services's reply:It was an incredible joy to serve Chrystal and Heron for their Milestone Moment Wedding in the Whitby Wedding Room.

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.Sent on 19/09/2019

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.Sent on 22/11/2019

Garry made the day perfect for us!
My husband and I got married last weekend with Garry as our officiant, and we couldn’t be happier with the amazing job he did! He made the whole process so easy and stress-free right from the beginning and through until the end. He provided us with endless helpful resources for customizing our wedding ceremony to suit us, and he maintained consistent contact with us throughout the planning process to make sure things were going smoothly on our end and we had no concerns. The wedding ceremony was done beautifully, and he was very professional and personable, while also making us feel comfortable and at ease the whole time. I can’t say enough how perfect Garry made the day, and I can confirm that all of his other great reviews are definitely very well deserved!Sent on 08/08/2019
