Charming and Delightful

It was a pleasure working with Keith for our nuptials he was a very pleasant, on time and courteous. Things were kept lighthearted and welcoming. I have no qualms recommending Keith to another couple seeking a similar pleasurable experience. He kept us up to date on everything and even post wedding was able to help us with a query. Thanks again!

Best Decision Ever

My now husband and I only had about a month to plan our wedding and Keith made every effort to help us pick the right ceremony for us and fit us into his schedule. Throughout the process he was very responsive and so kind and caring. He really made our day incredibly special. He made us all laugh and cry, then laugh all over again, then cry some more! Our guests all raved about how much they loved Keith and we couldn't be more smitten as well. We cannot recommend Keith enough. His after care in helping us sort out the paperwork was also amazing - the whole process couldn't have gone smoother and better. Having Keith officiate our wedding was the best decision we ever made, apart from marrying each other of course! The biggest of thank yous to Keith! We hope to see you again when we renew our vows! :)

Beautiful Ceremony!

If you are looking for a tailored and memorable ceremony experience, we would highly recommend Exceptional Ceremonies.

Keith was a pleasure to work with. He is charismatic, professional, and was helpful throughout the entire vow writing process. The rehearsal was also a nice addition and made our wedding party feel more at ease knowing their roles, what to do, and where to be.

Keith delivered the ceremony wonderfully on our wedding day. We received many compliments on how unique and enjoyable it was. Any couple would be lucky to have him as their officiant.

Thank you Keith!!

Wonderful experience preparing for our wedding

My husband and I worked with Keith to create a perfect, unique ceremony for our big day. Keith made the entire process so easy and stress free. We had so much fun working through everything to create our ceremony. We had several guests tell us that they genuinely enjoyed our ceremony. Highly recommend!!!

A ceremony like no other

Ever attend a wedding ceremony and wonder why they all seem the same, or leave the wedding and not remember anything about the ceremony except that they said “I do” and kissed... well your ceremony with Exceptional Ceremonies won’t be anything like that. Keith worked with us to from the start to customize our ceremony to match our vision perfectly. Provided us endless options to tailor the event to reflect our love and humour. They have used their experience to make the ceremony unique to perfection. Heart wrenching emotional moments mixed with light hearted fun entertainment for all so that your ceremony will be the talk of the year and years to come.

We would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

Very flexible & easy to work with!

Lynn was such a warm and friendly officiant - she did an amazing job at our pop-up ceremony in the Arboretum. Leading up to the ceremony we did most of the planning with Keith, which was quick and easy. The day of our ceremony I (the bride) was running late and they adapted their plans for us, which we really appreciated. Keith had to head out to another ceremony and Lynn stepped in last minute! She arrived quickly and put my mind at ease in this stressful situation. Thank you Lynn & Keith for great service!

Unique ceremony in our unique COVID times

My partner and I had been planning a large wedding on June 27th that was cancelled due to COVID. We decided, however, that we still wanted to get married on that date. Our wedding went through a number of iterations, changing as the public health guidelines did. At first it was going to be in our living room with no guests, then in our friend's backyard when we were able to have gatherings outside, and then at a hotel when the number limits for gatherings were increased again. Keith was flexible and willing to adjust with every step we took which made it easy for us to have the best wedding that the guidelines of the day allow. Also, my partner and I completely customized our ceremony based on the great material Keith provided, as well as his advice for how to do things - such as vows - that will make it more likely that you will make it through the ceremony (instead of being a blubbering mess). We appreciated that support and guidance and have received nothing but wonderful comments on our ceremony.
