A collaborative and inclusive experience

Leonard has been super collaborative, professional and supportive the whole way through our marriage preparation process! We kept in touch leading up to the ceremony, hopes on a zoom call with him as we live in The Bahamas, prior to our ceremony at home in Canada. And he provided easy to understand step by step details on how to apply for our license, our marriage certificate and together, decided on the style of ceremony he performed on our wedding day. He made it super easy for us and our guests are still raving about his style of ceremony. Many saying it was the best they’d ever witnessed! We couldn’t be happier or more grateful, Leonard was a true partner and supporter the whole way through!

We were so pleased with Leonard. We had lots of great compliments from the guests about our ceremony. His ability speak, read the room and set the tone for the day. Leading up to the wedding, Leonard was a professional - responsive and provided recommendations based on experience when we had questions.

We found the best, perfect officiant!

I’ve reached out to multiple officiants and it’s not easy to find the one. As soon as I found Leonard in WeddingWire, I had the strong feeling that he’s the one I want to officiate our wedding. Leonard is very professional, easy to communicate with, well-spoken and very organized. He made sure that he meets all our wants and needs for our wedding ceremony. Leonard made the ceremony planning stress-free for us. He has a good sense of humour as well, he made our ceremony light and smooth. Even my guests complimented how great he is!

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!

If you are looking for a young and friendly officiant with a great voice - Leonard is your guy!

Leonard was absolutely wonderful to work with for our elopement. We wanted an officiant that was close in age to us and found Leonard on WeddingWire. We had a relatively short turnaround time as we needed to sign marriage papers before our destination wedding. He was very responsive and organized. He sent us all necessary information, kept us informed about the process, and let us know when he filed our documents and how to apply for our marriage certificate. He performed a short and lovely ceremony for our immediate family. We are extremely happy in working with him and he has our highest recommendation!

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

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.

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.
