    Wonderful!

    Michael was perfect for us. He made a beautiful ceremony that many of our friends and family were complimenting afterwards. He was incredibly helpful in preparing for the ceremony and making things as easy as possible for us.

    Thank you Kieran and Morgan for sharing your experience and I am so happy to hear that your family and friends enjoyed the ceremony. You were easy to work with and I wish you the very best hoping our paths cross once again.

    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.

    Michael Wilson's reply:

    It was an immense honour and pleasure officiating your wedding. I am so grateful for your kind comments and wish you and Michael a terrific future together.

    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!!

    Thank you so much for such an awesome review Jenna. It was an amazing wedding and I am honoured to have been part of your most special day.

    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!

    Michael Wilson's reply:

    I am humbled by your kind words. It was a wonderful experience being part of your beautiful and memorable wedding. A heartfelt thank you for having me as your wedding celebrant.

    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.

    Phenomenal!

    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!

    I am humbled by your wonderful review Alyssa. It was a fantastic and uplifting experience. I wish you a most happy and prosperous future.

    Professional and Kind

    Michael delivered us a wonderful ceremony for our small wedding amidst the pandemic. He was very prompt to answer questions, and we both found the ceremony to be very meaningful! He charged a fair price for his services as well. He was very kind and positive too! As lockdowns came and went, and pandemic rules flipped and flopped (changing the ceremony each time) Michael was understanding and patent with us while we considered the pros and cons of postponing (again) or keeping the date with a much smaller crowd (we ended up with four guests in the end). We appreciated that, and his kind words as well. We definitely recommend Michael for your special day!

    Michael Wilson's reply:

    I was honoured to have officiated your wedding and it was a very special experience. I am humbled by such kind words.

    He made our day that much better

    Michael truly made this experience amazing. He wrote our ceremony customized to what we were looking for. He was extremely understanding and accommodating when we had to change our dates because of covid. He was very easy to communicate with. It felt as though he had been a life long friend and made our day very special.

    Michael Wilson's reply:

    Thank you so much Erica for such kind words. I am humbled. It was a wonderful experience and such a unique and beautiful venue.
