    A true pleasure!

    Garry was fantastic! We had our backyard ceremony and afterwards he walked us through the paperwork. He was patient, super helpful and accommodating with our plans for our special day.

    Marriage ceremony

    Thank you Garry for officiating our marriage on such a short notice. Especially, for offering your beautiful deck as an alternative venue as the weather was not kind on the day of wedding. You really made our special day memorable!

    Exactly what we were looking for on our special day!

    Garry was a fantastic officiant for my husband and I! He was very accommodating and helpful as we navigated the process. We went with the short and sweet package due to COVID-19. He was one of the only officiants that offered a small ceremony with such a simple package, which is exactly what we were looking for. Although it was small, it was very meaningful and special for us because of the care he put into it. He also offered a time capsule option for an additional price, which included several items that we will open on our anniversary and use to celebrate. Overall, it was an excellent experience! These things can be stressful, especially during a pandemic, but Garry really helped it to be less stressful.

    Loved the spirit of adventure shown by this couple to be the very first wedding I was delighted to officiate in the year 2021. In spite of all the restrictions due to Covid-19 Danielle & Daniel accomplished their goal to be married. It was my delight to join them on their journey. Wishing them a lifetime of happiness and blessing. May they stay together forever!

    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.

    It was indeed a pleasure to work with Emma & Ryan for their Milestone Moment Wedding in August 2020. Their original plans were disrupted by the pandemic but they adjusted accordingly with positive results. Wishing them a lifetime of happiness and may they stay together forever!

    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!

    Intimate Wedding

    When it became apparent that COVID-19 wasn't going anywhere and our original plans for our wedding were going to have to be put on hold, we decided to have a small wedding (family only) in our apartment. Since we were going to have a destination wedding, we didn't have an officiant here in Toronto. I searched through many many many wedding wire officiants, but eventually focused my search on the Premium rated officiants. Garry's page stood out, not only because of the hundreds of 5 star reviews, but because of the genuine warmth of the photos attached to the reviews.
    I contact Garry and he was very responsive and set up a virtual meeting with us to go over details and get to know us a bit before officiating out wedding. His website is full of wonderful resources for writing vows, ceremony templates (all customizable), and other fun suggestions to make your special day truly yours!
    The restrictions were set to change the day of our wedding and Garry was instrumental in ensuring the day went off without a hitch. He reached out to fellow pastors in our area to help us secure a secondary venue if needed, and reassured us that our original plan was still possible- he was flexible with whatever we decided on. In an already stressful situation, his calm, professionalism, humour, and good spirit was invaluable.
    I cannot recommend Garry enough as an officiant for your wedding. His personality, experience, and guidance made our wedding day a memorable and perfect one!
    Garry, we thank you!

    I still remember the ceremony for Vera & Jason on Nov. 7th 2020! It was "the most cozy" ceremony I've ever officiated. I was welcomed as "part of their families." I ate to my heart content and was given a bag of goodies to enjoy with my family at home. I absolutely loved officiating this wedding! Vera & Jason I wish you a lifetime of happiness and may you stay together forever!

    Excellent Experience!

    Garry conducted a wonderful ceremony for us. We were seeking something short and sweet that didn't detract from the momentous occassion which is exactly what we got! Garry's humour and charm put everyone at ease and made our wedding day all the more fun and lighthearted.
