    Great officiant

    We are fortunate to have had Jim as our officiant. He is very experienced and provided us with a lot of great advice before the wedding. Jim kept a lively atmosphere and a good pace at our wedding. The wedding ceremony went really smoothly. We could not imagine our wedding without him. We highly recommend his service!

    Looking for an officiant? Look no further!

    Jim was absolutely fantastic to work with. His professionalism and dedication to his craft is undeniable. We had so many complements later about how beautiful the ceremony was, and Jim’s words will resonate with us for the rest of our lives together. We had an absolutely fantastic wedding day, and Jim played a huge part in that.

    Amazing Officiant!

    We couldn't be happier with a better officiant than Jim Murphy. It was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding, he's personable, kind, and funny.

    He was extremely organized, and gave us steps we needed to do complete before the wedding day. He has so much experience with weddings and was able to give us heads up what may happen (i.e. children in the wedding party could refuse to walk down the aisle on the wedding day and provided suggestions if that happens).

    Thanks for marrying us, Jim! :)

    Best,
    Sarah & Brandon

    Jim was very quick to respond and was very friendly! Our ceremony was light, easy-going and had a few laughs (which is what we wanted!) We were able to write our own vows and he took care of everything after we signed

    Jim Murphy was recommended to us through our venue site and after reading the reviews on Wedding Wire we were sure this was someone we wanted to meet. There are so many items to consider when picking an officiant and from what I had read, Jim had fit all of them.
    We were looking for a non-denominational service, which Jim provided for us. From the moment we made contact with Jim, he was so attentive, caring and showed a true passion for what he did. Being a bride who had to be on top of everything and have every detailed organized well in advance, Jim fit perfectly into our day. He was so quick to respond to emails and never left us feeling unsure. There were quite a few emails back and forth during the planning process and Jim always took the questions and answered them with such care and detail. He would mention just to trust him, which when you're stressed out with planning you're not to sure you want to let go of the little details and trust someone else. I put my trust in Jim and he didn't let us down. He walked us through every step of the way, the ceremony went flawlessly and people commented afterwards how great Jim was. He added humour, relaxation and a sense of love to our ceremony.
    Jim has a unique way of standing in front off to the side which allows for pictures. At first we were a little unsure of this but it was amazing! We were facing our guests rather than having our back to them and it made for some fantastic pictures. Jim even lets the newly weds kiss twice to give anyone a chance who missed it the first time to get a shot... THIS WAS GREAT! Our photographer couldn't say enough great things about the way the ceremony was.
    I can't say enough great things about Jim. From start to finish he kept me calm, relaxed and feeling confident in the choice we made.
