About

Heritage Weddings & Coordinators is a Hamilton, Ontario-based company that specializes in providing wedding-officiant services for soon-to-be-married couples. In addition to travelling to other locations, their small Heritage Wedding Chapel in Hamilton offers an easy and inexpensive option for getting married. Heritage Weddings also offers inclusive packages at some of Hamilton’s most famed historical sites for those who desire something more. These sites include Dundurn Castle, Battlefield Park, and Whitehern's Garden, among others.

Experience

Ted Simmons was a former clergyman who became worried about how wedding ceremonies were being conducted outside the church. In 1980, he opened the Wedding Chapel in Hess Village which offered more dignified ceremonies in a non-church setting. Over time he added other locations to the list, continuing to provide couples with a vow exchange to be treasured for years to come.

Services offered

Heritage Weddings & Coordinators provides multiple options to fit the needs of different clients. For ceremonies being conducted in historical locations such as Dundurn Coach House, Dundurn Maple Walk, Dundurn’s Cockpit Theatre, Whitehern’s Garden and Stable, Battlefield Park – Nash Jackson House, and the William Osler House there is the historical package. Couples may also choose to host a small and intimate wedding in the Heritage Chapel or the team can provide on-location officiant services elsewhere. The team also offers planning and coordination to help you with organizing the big day.

    Amazing Officiant

    Our officiant Michael was outstanding. He read our readings so gracefully for our guests and even included some humour into our ceremony which we enjoyed and so did our guests. Working with Tim at Heritage Weddings was great. He helped us with every step of our wedding that we needed.

    Hi Olivia and Jon, It was such a pleasure to help make your wedding so special. On behalf of everyone at Heritage Weddings, we wish you many happy years together.

    Outstanding Officiant!

    We worked with Tim while we were planning our ceremony and Judy was our officiant on our wedding day. Tim was so helpful and obliging with all of our thoughts towards the vibe of our ceremony. Judy our officiant was just lovely. We would highly recommend Heritage Weddings!

    Heritage Weddings & Coordinators's reply:

    Hi Leah and Justin.
    We’re so happy that your wedding matched your hopes and expectations. I really enjoyed working with you and I’ll pass your words of appreciation on to Judy. I wish you many happy years together.

    Amazing Experience!

    I had my ceremony at the Coach House at Dundurn Castle. Tim walked me through every detail and step of the wedding, and fully had my anxiety in mind towards the big day. I was also alllowed to bring in some of my own decor, and the team helped set everything up. The whole process was so chill and everything ran so smoothly. I ended up not being nervous at all! Minister Mark was also awesome! He made us feel both very comfortable and the guests were big fans. Thank you to all at Heritage Weddings for my our big day so magical!

    Heritage Weddings & Coordinators's reply:

    Thanks so much for your kind words. We all really enjoyed working with you and wish you both all the best and many happy years together. Tim

    Our wedding was wonderful!

    We were married at the Old Ancaster Town Hall June 22 2019. Our experience with Heritage Weddings and Tim was really terrific! Tim and the caterer, La Piazza Allegra, made everything run smoothly. I was so grateful for Tim's enthusiastic expertise. I can't thank you enough Tim:)

    Great service!

    Heritage wedding was a great choice for us, the Maple Walk location was phenomenal. The decorations they provided were exceptional and helped make the ceremony site perfect, and Tim's help and careful eye in reviewing our vows helped make them so much better. Thank you to all there who made our day so special!

    Heritage Weddings & Coordinators's reply:

    I have nothing but amazing things to say about Heritage Weddings. Tim was our Guardian Angel for our ceremony at Dundurn Castle on Oct 22 and it was magical. The ceremony was so beautiful, Tim is a miracle worker and honestly, such a pleasure to work with. Our ceremony could not have been more perfect and Tim worked hard to ensure our day would go as planned. Mark, you were freaking awesome! Thank you so much for letting us plan the ceremony and for standing outside in that cold wind to rehearse with us that Friday!

    Heritage Weddings, thank you times a million for being part of our perfect day!

    Tim Simmons at Hertiage Weddings and Coordinators was very helpful with our ceremony. Tim took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. The officiant he chose for us was perfect. Tim also gave us advise and information to put together our own ceremony and write our own beautiful vows.

    I am very satisfied with the service we received and would greatly recommend this company.
