Easy and amazing!

Looking for an officiant was not easy when you are trying to plan a wedding in a month. When my husband and I met Leonard we knew he would be the one to marry us. He was easy to talk to, fast response, and answered any questions we had. All our guests even said how good he was. We could not have been more happier

Well-spoken, professional, adaptable

Leonard was exactly what we were looking for for our wedding ceremony - professional, adaptable, and well-spoken. I don't know about you, but some officiants can be too exaggerated in the way they speak or they speak too slowly. Leonard has a great voice that's captivating, he speaks at a good pace, and he's able to adapt to the situation while still guiding you through it. We had some special traditions we wanted to do for our ceremony and Leonard incorporated it in seamlessly. There was a moment where something didn't go as planned and he deftly tackled the situation and made sure to guide us through it without giving it away. I especially appreciated that he asked us a bunch of questions about ourselves during our meeting and included these elements for our ceremony, making it our own and not just a generic spiel that applies to anyone and everyone. Highly, highly recommend Leonard!

Memorable & stress free!

We had the joy of working with Leonard when we got married through PopUp Chapel. The PopUp Chapel experience is a unique one and we only met Leonard 30 min before our ceremony. Despite the time crunch, he took the time to get to know us, answer any questions we had and made us feel completely at ease through his organized and calm presence. Thank you, Leonard, for making our wedding memorable and stress free!

Highly recommend Leonard Nolasco

We are so happy to have had Leonard officiate our wedding. Everything from initial outreach to communication and the day-of ceremony was a breeze. Our ceremony felt truly personalized and was the perfect length. I would highly recommend Leonard to anyone looking for a professional and personable wedding officiant.

Leonard is awesome!

We had booked a ceremony package through The Bellamy Loft, and luckily they connected us with Leonard, who is their partner officiant.

Leonard made our wedding so memorable. The ceremony was personalized and really expressed how my husband and I are. Everything he mentioned was so relatable. It was like Leonard has known us for a very long time lol.

Leonard is professional, easy to work with and made everything go as planned/smoothly. To be honest, i don't think my husband ans I were truly prepared for the wedding. We didn't have any rehearsals as my husband and I planned it all ourselves. I think I was all over the place during the ceremony lol. I couldn't stand still, keep eye contact with my husband, or say my vows without crying but Leonard was so nice and tried to calm me down. I definitely didn't calm down as much cause its me lol, but it still helped.

Thank you Leonard for everything. Wishing you all the best!

Exactly what we wished for!

We came across Leonard on Instagram and decided to reach out to him. Since we live abroad, our meeting was over a video call and I was a bit nervous but Leonard was friendly, supportive, interested, and guided us through moments and decisions that needed to be figured out. I am so glad we found Leonard and chose him as our Officiant. He incorporated elements to pay homage to our families and loved ones as well as keeping the ceremony solemn yet also honest and fun! He was also willing to wait 10 minutes while our late guests arrived, which was very kind. We had many guests say how intimate, honest, and special the ceremony was and it was everything we wished for. Thank you very much Leonard for your guidance, support and marrying us.

Incredibly memorable and personalize experience!

I can’t recommend Leonard enough! He had a very professional and calming/organized approach to the ceremony which was greatly appreciated during wedding prep! I felt like he really spend time to get to know my husband and I and weave these personal touches into the ceremony. He is very reliable, organized and experienced which is crucial for running the ceremony and signing/mailing the paperwork! He is incredibly thoughtful, charming and funny and had our guests laughing and crying (sometimes at the same time!) we received so many compliments on Leonard’s officiating from our guests and he truly made our ceremony the most meaningful part of our day! Leonard is truly gifted officiant who made our ceremony feel so very special and meaningful!

our happily ever after

In short, Leonard was perfect. Our ceremony was exactly what we had in mind and couldn’t have gone any better. Our family were very happy that there was a traditional filipino tone to it. You did such a great job and we got a lot of compliments on it.
Thank you times a million.
You’re forever part of our journey.

Delivered a Very Special Moment

After a few brief conversations, Leonard totally crafted and delivered a beautiful wedding ceremony that encapsulated our relationship and goals as a married couple moving forward. Our guests were engaged (we received a lot of great feedback) and Leonard was very pleasant to work with. We are so grateful for him being a huge part of our big day and highly recommend him to anyone thinking of booking him for theirs!

Leonard Nolasco
Wedding Officiant and Celebrant

I’m a Certified Life Celebrant in Canada and a licensed Marriage Officiant in the Province of Ontario, serving the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Ordained as a Minister by the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry (CIMM), I specialize in performing wedding ceremonies using a calm, collected and professional approach. Metaphysics recognizes and respects all religions and spiritual paths. I am free to marry couples of all faiths, cultures, or sexual orientation.

Professionally, I am a fundraiser with SickKids Foundation with a background in Project Management (which has helped with keeping couples organized as we plan their ceremony). I volunteer my time as President of my Condo Board, a Board Director for Childhood Cancer Survivor Canada and a Crisis Responder for Kids Help Phone.

I spent the better part of seven years living and working aboard in Qatar and South Africa. I’ve been to at least 25 countries and I intend on travelling to 40 countries by the time I turn 40 (i.e. 15 countries in five years). I also love to cook. Check out quarantine.cuisineTO on Instagram to see how I’ve kept busy during quarantine.

The reason I got into this business was because my friends asked me to “officiate” their wedding. (Think Joey marrying Chandler and Monica on Friends). At the time, I wasn’t licensed, so we did the ceremony anyway and they had a Legal Officiant do the declaration. Months later, another friend said she was eloping and asked me to officiate her wedding. That’s when I decided to get licensed. Officiating is a great side hustle (I mean, what millennial doesn’t have one?). Not only do I get to meet incredible people from all walks of life but I also get to be a part of their special day. It’s important for me to work with the couple in delivering a ceremony that reflects who they are and what they believe in.
