    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.
