    James Latour delivered an experience that many of our guests said was fitting, sincere, and memorable!

    As we are unconventional fun-loving souls, we celebrated our nuptials in a dragon themed fantasy medieval style. It was important to us to have the “right fit” for our officiant. Partly because of our theme but mainly because, for us, the reason for celebrating in the first place is the whole marriage ceremony thing. We really wanted the ceremony to be a highlight of the day for our guests. We chose James Latour because he was open to our theme, he does nonreligious ceremonies, and he works with you to put together a personal and meaningful ceremony. James delivered an experience that many of our guests said was fitting, sincere, and memorable and all in about 20 minutes! His communication back and forth while crafting the script was top notch as well. Two weeks after our wedding we received a lovely handcrafted booklet containing our ceremony script as a keepsake. This is part of the package we selected but he added a twist by choosing a custom font to match our medieval theme. It was a really nice touch to cap things off. We highly recommend James to anyone wanting a ceremony that truly reflects who they are.

    Dear Lord and Lady!
    It was such a pleasure and privilege to work with you on your very special ceremony. I enjoyed my time very much. Although we were rained out and had to take the ceremony indoors, I think it was PERFECT with all the decorations round about! Blessings on you both. Thank you for choosing Life’s Journey Ceremonies to officiate your special day.

    Our Wedding Ceremony would not have been the same without James

    When we first found James we knew instantly that he was the person to marry us. He did not disappoint. We were coming from the mainland and he was so accommodating to meet with us via facetime and then in person when we were popping over. The ceremony he did for us was so heartfelt and perfect for us as a couple. He is funny and kind and it shows through during the ceremony. Many friends and family members commented during the reception how great he was! Thank you so much James!

    You are both so very welcome! I had so much fun using handcuffs and throwing away the key, rather than traditional ties for the hand-fasting! Such an honour to serve you both. Thank you.

    We absolutely loved having James officiate our wedding. We remember instantly liking him when we met him for the first time. He has a way of putting you at ease and was kind enough to meet us in a coffee shop so that we could all get to know each other before moving forward. He worked with us to create a non-religious ceremony that we were thrilled about. He has a wonderful speaking voice and kept our guests engaged throughout the ceremony. Our guests loved the stories he shared about us during the ceremony. We strongly recommend James to any couple getting married.

    Summer wedding

    We were very pleased with having James as our officiant. Neither my husband nor myself are religious at all and were not interested in a traditional ceremony. I asked James for something more to do with nature and the elements and he delivered. I asked him to keep it quick as it was a mid summer wedding and I knew it would be too hot, as well I do not enjoy all eyes on me for long periods of time. He made it even shorter than anticipated which suited us just fine. 5/5 recommendation.
