The ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. A moment that you will remember for your entire life. My name is Michael and I am an experienced and thoughtful Wedding Officiant who presides over civil wedding ceremonies and vow renewals.

My passion is creating engaging, custom and personal ceremonies that celebrate your unique love story. Timeless ceremonies reflecting the love you both share that will be remembered for years to come. Of course, your ceremony may even include a couple of laughs! I simply love officiating weddings, making each one special and am so often grateful when guests approach me and say that the ceremony was the best they ever attended.

I love telling stories, listening to couples stories and experiences and providing guidance on creating that wonderful moment. Every ceremony is important whether it is a large affair, an intimate wedding, an elopement or just getting the legal part done, every moment matters to me.

Do you want a friend or loved one lead the ceremony? Unsure what you are looking for? Let's talk! I have lot's of experience and can help.

I operate out of both Truro and Liscomb so I am able to do weddings in a wide area of Nova Scotia including Colchester, Cumberland, Hants, Halifax, Pictou, Antigonish and Guysborough Counties. I am also a preferred vendor at the premier wedding venue Liscombe Lodge. I am available most weekdays and weekends so please feel free to contact me for availability.

Please take a few moments to read the reviews from many of the wonderful couples that I have married over the years.

Please feel free to contact me anytime and I will be more than happy to help you with any questions you may have about getting married in Nova Scotia.

Highly Recommended - Especially for Liscombe Lodge Weddings

Michael was friendly, knowledgeable and so close to our wedding venue! He has done many wedding there and lives close by so it was very convenient for everyone. He even met us in Halifax before hand to go over paperwork which is much closer to where we lived, was a huge help. I loved how customized his speech was to my husband and I, he let us make our own edits and added so many personal touches, all via email! Everything was so easy with him, I highly recommend him to anyone getting married! Thank you Michael for everything!

Micheal was absolutely a perfect fit !

Micheal was extremely accommodating. We had to switch venues, and he did so with a smile on his face. He was extremely professional, while be friendly at the same time. He really fit into our cermony smoothly. Would definately recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.

Michael Wilson- Awesome

We hired Michael for our JP earlier this month. He's been fantastic to work with. We wanted "short,sweet & legal" ceremony and he delivered. He customized our ceremony for our nerdy tastes which made it more interesting than the normal run of the mill vows.
Excellent to communicate with, very helpful in navigating the paperwork.

You Need Michael!

We couldn't have asked for anyone better to officiate us! We would recommend Michael over and over again to anyone. He made the ceremony everything we could have asked for and more. There was absolutely no stress involved.
Michael was very accommodating and helpful throughout the whole wedding planning process and was always available. We decided we wanted to have a small elopement 4 days before our big, planned ceremony/reception and after telling Michael this, he did everything he could to be there for us. 48 hours after this, we were married :)
The ceremony was so personalized to us because Michael really got to know about us and our relationship during the planning process. The ceremony meant the absolute world to me and the words that were spoken that day are some that I will hold in my heart forever.
Thank you for working with us and allowing us to have the intimate elopement of our dreams. You are the best!!

He made our wedding extra special!

Michael was such an amazing officiant. Right from the start, he was so thorough and wanted to ensure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. He ensured he was knowledgeable of our backgrounds and incorporated it into the ceremony to make it extra special. Michael made every step of the ceremony easy and smooth and personal…couldn’t have asked for any one better!!

Highly recommend

Would recommend Michael as an officiant to anyone/everyone! He was AMAZING to work with. He made the organization of the ceremony so stress free and was very accommodating. He worked with us through 3 wedding date changes and two location changes. He stuck with us even though the location change required him to travel. He is such a humble person and really makes the ceremony personalized to you as a couple. Many guests said it was one of the most intimate ceremonies they have attended. Thank you Michael for helping make our wedding day so special and memorable!

Very happy!

For our wedding in Antigonish, Michael was very accommodating, punctual, encouraging and helpful - especially during a pandemic. From a couple getting married for the first time, Michael was able to help us during the whole process from start to finish. Michael is cheerful, and very positive. We added some custom pieces to our vows and Michael handled them with ease.

Michael was with us through plan A, B, C and all the way down until the moment we called him with a few hours notice to say let's elope tonight! He got in his car and drove to meet us, even recommended a gorgeous spot. We could not be more pleased with the how the ceremony went. It was personalized to us, and reflected us perfectly. Michael is a pleasure to work with. He made the process so easy amongst the chaos and stress of a COVID wedding. He was available to us for every question or concern. We cannot say enough kind things about him, he truly made the day exactly what it was supposed to be. Thank you, Michael!
