Perfect ceremony, great support , thoughtful advice

Reverend Steve was fantastic and very supportive. Steve was always available to give advice and reduce our stress. Steve helped us pull together a very quick wedding by recommending and facilitating a church close to our home and backyard reception. Steve’s chosen biblical readings were perfect. We were very happy. Many thanks to Reverend Steve

Our experience with Steve was top notch

Our time with Steve was wonderful we traveled all the way to Canada to get married and every step of the way he helped us and assured us things were gonna go as planned. He always stayed in touch and made accommodations for our location. He still stays in touch to this day and is helping us out in other ways as well. If your looking for someone you can trust your wedding with and important documents it's him, we highly recommend. Thanks Steve for absolutely everything!

Thank you SO much!

From the very first phone call, I knew Rev. Steve was the Officiant for us! He is so easy to talk to, incredibly genuine and has a great sense of humour. We didn’t want a very religious ceremony and we wanted to include some non-traditional aspects - Rev. Steve guided and encouraged us to make it perfect. I didn’t know what a “Sand Ceremony” was and because we have a blended family, Rev. Steve recommended it. It was the perfect addition to our very personal ceremony.
Rev. Steve, Keinon and I can’t thank you enough for your patience, kindness, support and for making us laugh!! We are grateful to have found you and for helping us make our day so magical.

Amazing!

Rev. Steve was AMAZING! From the first time we spoke with him, we knew he was the very best fit for us and what we wanted our ceremony to be. Not only was he attentive, but he was meticulous when it came to small details that we didn’t even think of and he was so supportive of the vibe and vision we wanted for our ceremony. He was charming and funny, and everything flowed so naturally. It was like we had a long-time friend marrying us that day. He made it intimate enough for my husband and I, while still keeping it light and fun (which was very important to us). In addition, throughout our engagement, he would check in, offer classes to help support us in preparing for marriage, and send reminders for important dates/materials needed for the day. Rev. Steve is a wonderful friend and officiant. He is the very BEST choice for those who want a fun, intimate, and versatile ceremony. We couldn’t be happier!!

A wonderful experience

We had the pleasure of having Rev Hazel Shanks officiate at my mother and step-father’s wedding. Hazel guided us every step of the way from helping us with the required paperwork to finding a last-minute place to obtain the license. GTA Wedding Officiants were flexible and always responsive to any questions we had. She delivered a thoughtful, beautiful ceremony and added to the joy of this special day.

Incredible Officiant Who Made Our Day

We were not very super where to start with our search for officiants so we turned to our usual source, Google, which is where we found Hazel. We had read some wonderful reviews and after some email communication we set up a virtual meeting. Just from emailing, we could tell that Hazel was just the kindest and most amazing person who was very willing to listen to what we wanted for our ceremony and make that happen. We are not very traditional and wanted an easy, light and fun ceremony which is exactly what we got. She was also such an asset throughout our entire wedding planning experience. Super responsive and always willing to answer whatever seemingly silly question we posed to her. We got SO many compliments on our ceremony and everyone wanted to know where we got our officiant from so that they could book her as well, she is FAB!

Reverend

My passion for performing weddings begins with meeting couples to customize their wedding ceremony and providing pre-marriage counseling.

I was born in England to Jamaican parents and grew up in Jamaica with extended family until I came to join my mother in Canada in the early ’70s.

I am a graduate of the University of Guelph with a degree in Justice Studies and have been a police officer since 1988.

I was ordained as a minister in 2018 and my calling is bringing the word to seniors in retirement homes.

Performing weddings is very cathartic for me as the love that fills these ceremonies brings me great joy.
