Amber is a delight!

Our experience with Amber was one of ease and simplicity. She has an excellent system to set up your ceremony exactly how you’d wish to, and helped us ensure all the details were just how we wanted. Our ceremony was one of warmth, from the heart, with some good laughs here and there, and she made sure that we were prepared for every step. I snuck in an extra surprise for my husband, and she was right in there with me plotting to make it happen!

I’m so glad she was our officiant, she was confident and elegant, but was so warm and happy to be there, she truly loves what she does and it shows!! I would recommend her to anyone who wants a confident, caring, humorous person to lead them through their vows, we were lucky to have her!

The best of the best!

This is my first wedding, second marriage. We saw that Nathan other gig is a stand up comedian and we were so thrilled with his personality that we gave him full range. The ceremony was tasteful, professional and down right good comedy which was what we wanted. Our wedding guest loved him so much, he made the ceremony fun and we all known how gruelling a ceremony can be traditionally. We highly recommend him and our guest has asked and inquired about him as well.

Nathan the Great!

Nathan was exactly the kind of officiant we were looking for to marry us. He brought humour, light-heartedness and a really positive vibe to the ceremony. We wanted the ceremony to reflect our personalities and Nathan did his best to get to know us, to understand our needs and to deliver a flawless ceremony. I would 100% recommend him to anyone getting married in Southwestern Ontario!

Hilarious officiant

Nathan was our officiant and was a blast to work with. He let us build our script to suit our tastes, while adding his own little well timed quips where appropriate. When I sent him a last minute change and left freedom for him to riff off my notes, he did and better than I could have hoped. I did prank him by pretending he gave me the wrong vows and I thought he might pass out on the spot, but he recovered like a champ and carried on (sorry Nate, but I knew you could take a joke).
We’re grateful we hired him and we are rooting for his and Amber’s success with all their future wedding officiating!

Thank you Amber for guiding us thru our wedding ceremony! Your calm presence helped my wedding nerves. And the funnies we planned during the ceremony made it fun for our guests too. We appreciate you!

The best choice out there!

When we find out that Amber or Nathan will be the officiant for the day, we know it's going to be a great wedding! They are always professional, on time, and really get to know their couples.

Cellar 52 wedding

Nathan was amazing from our first meeting to the day of. He was so kind, organized and was great to work with. We did a rehearsal with him and he was sooooo helpful, he directed everyone where to go and walked us through the whole thing. The day of he was awesome, he kept our ceremony meaningful but lighthearted which made us feel more relaxed. His jokes in the ceremony were perfect to help break all the tension and let you breathe! After the ceremony our guests couldn’t stop talking about how amazing Nathan was and we couldn’t agree more!

The best officiant

Nate was the best officiant we could have ever asked for. He brought a light-heartedness to our ceremony while still showing our love. We loved his humour, how knowledgeable he is, and the cues he gave us. We were so grateful that he drove to our venue the day before for a rehearsal. So many people have come up to us and have said how much they loved Nate and our ceremony. We now want him to be our friend. We would highly recommend hiring to anyone!

Wedding Officiant

Born in the small town of Waterford, ON, I learned how to drive a tractor before I was 13, and a truck before I was legally allowed to. This small-town girl with big-city dreams has called so many places in Ontario home but is currently planted in Cambridge, ON.

As a single mom of three adult children and two furbabies, my life is beautifully full of fun and freedom! (apart from being a slave to aforementioned dependents). My professional life of over 25 years has been as a Creative Arts Director, both participating in and overseeing visual arts and performing arts teams such as; choir, instrumentalists, graphic design, marketing, audio & video tech, drama & dance, etc. I am very comfortable on the stage or behind a mic on the radio. As if I could hide my love of food seeing as my social media feeds are primarily food & weddings! I also love to read, cultures & travel, enjoy music, fitness, decor, and the great outdoors!

There’s nothing worse than a long, boring, stale ceremony that doesn’t fit your vibe as a couple and has your friends and family just waiting for it to end. I am a professional Wedding Officiant with many years in the wedding industry as an emcee and officiant. I will use his “quick witted humour”, “old lady squish his chubby cheeks charm” and what my mom calls my “sparkling personality” to help make your wedding ceremony EXACTLY what you want it to be.

I was born in Kitchener, Ontario Canada and raised in Guelph along side my 5 brothers and sisters. My upbringing was full of music and sports and laughter and arguing over the last pancake at breakfast. I usually won that argument. I’m the life of the party, love to make people laugh but can also be polite, professional and your Aunt Gertrude will LOVE me.

I’ve done it all and have the scars to prove it. Red Lobster biscuit boy, worked at a young Offenders Facility, was Business Manager for 2 successful junior hockey clubs, Vice President of a Jr. A lacrosse club, was formerly known as Korky The Klown for a few events (don’t ask, I will deny it), I have been in 2 movies, chased by zombies in commercials, umpire baseball in the summer and have been a manager of a heating company for the past 24 years, I’ve emceed dozens of weddings, dabbled in stand up comedy and I bring all of those talents & abilities to your disposal.

I love people! I love to make people laugh, I love to people watch, I love to help when others are in need. I also love tacos. I’m a Toronto Sports fan and yes that includes the Toronto Maple Leafs, please don’t hate me for my painful choices.
