Margie is such a wonderful person and was amazing as our officiant. Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but planning one during Covid, when rules are constantly changing, makes it even harder. Margie was always quick to respond to questions, and worked with us as we had to make changes throughout.Sent on 05/04/2021
Right from the start we were planning a Star Wars themed wedding, and Margie didn't hesitate to help us make it what we wanted. We included theme elements throughout the ceremony, and Margie helped us figure out how best to include them to make it perfect!
Although we ended up with very few people attending in person, we live streamed the ceremony for all our guests that were unable to attend in person. We have received lots of comments from both in person guests and virtual guests about how great a job Margie did. She helped us make the ceremony fit our personalities perfectly, and we are so happy we hired her.
I would say that I would hire her again - but we have no intention of having another wedding :) If we ever decide to do a vow renewal, Margie will be our go to officiant!

Truly amazing to work with !
Margie was so amazing to work with and flexible with regards to time date, ceremony style you name it. My now husband and I planned to get married July 2020 before covid hit and had reached out to Margie. We chatted on the phone and she was so pleasant to speak with. As soon as we worked out the details we were ready for th day to come, however due to virus circumstances we had to postpone the wedding and Margie was ready to move the date so easily! Finally after a few months of re-planning we had had enough waiting and decided to abide by the restrictions and have a very small intimate wedding... With only three weeks notice Margie was ready AGAIN to move the date and travel further than we had originally request. We are so thankful and happy that she was so incredibly easy to work with and that she was able to be apart of our special day ! We would recommend her to everyone as she a truly a pleasure to work with!Sent on 17/11/2020

Margie was amazing to work with from the moment We first chatted about the wedding until we left the aisle. Margie is caring, kind and has such a calming demeanour her presence alone alleviates so much stress when you’re saying your “I Do’s” ! I would 100% recommend Margie to anyone looking for an officiant that cares not only about making your wedding a success but also cares about you as a couple and individually as people.Sent on 25/09/2020

One in a million!
My husband and I just had the most special experience with I do wedding officiating. Margie was so thoughtful and the most friendly person any couple could for. She accommodated us with her own space and made us feel like family.Sent on 14/08/2020
Margie was inviting and went above and beyond to ensure us and our guests were well taken care of and settled. She even surprised us with delicious a non-alcoholic champagne toast afterwards, since we are non drinkers.
Overall, we highly recommend Margie if you are looking for a quiet, small and very intimate style setting. Was a very emotional and spiritual experience.
Thanks again Margie. Love the Jones!

Margie is fantastic!
Margie is thorough, professional, attentive and very easy to talk to. She made us feel so comfortable and created a beautiful ceremony for us.
Everyone at our ceremony agreed that she was a great choice for us. We even did a Unity Sand Ceremony for our blended family and this was awesome and highly recommend.
I can't say enough about Margie and highly recommend her.
Thanks Margie for everything!!!!Sent on 10/09/2020
