    Amazing Commissioner

    Patrick did an amazing job on our wedding.
    He performed the perfect personalized ceremony for our special day.
    He was professional, friendly, accommodating and responded in a timely manner.
    He answered all our questions & embraced some of our own additions.
    We were able to include our parents in the ceremony which they really appreciated.
    We couldn't have picked a better officiant ! We are so happy we decided to have Patrick perform our marriage.

    Very easy experience

    Patrick was very helpful as our Officiant and made it so easy on us. All of my family has been married in the Church before so this was my first experience with an Officiant rather than a Priest. He was so accommodating and lovely to talk to. He offered for us to include our family and friends so that we could have religious readings if we wanted and was very open to modifying the ceremony to what suited us. We did not get to have Patrick with us for our rehearsal but he provided us with a very handy Rehearsal Guide. You would never have known he wasn’t at the rehearsal as the wedding day went so so smoothly. Thank you Patrick!

    Thank you for your review Adele. It was a pleasure to be a part of your special day.
    For those that wish to personalize their marriage ceremony, I believe that each ceremony should reflect the couple and their families and have personal touches that make it uniquely theirs. Yours were subtle and meaningful and I hope gave a warm feeling to all of your guests.

    Wonderful Commissioner

    A commissioner, in my opinion, is one of the most important aspects of a wedding. They are with you for the most pivotal moment of your wedding. Patrick, you were amazing! You were so kind, and really funny! You instantly put me at ease with your personality, and were so great to work with! You were so funny and I absolutely enjoyed having you around. Thank you so much for everything! I loved that you made a certificate for our daughters to sign as well. Everyone commented on it being such a wonderful aspect. I wish you the absolute best Patrick!

    Gina and Tom, Congratulations once again on your marriage and thank you for your kind words. In a blended family, I believe that it is important to acknowledge the children and give them a role in the ceremony and it was evident that they were all very happy to stand there with you and the tears were ones of joy. I wish all of you all the best now and in the future!

    Perfect Ceremony

    Patrick married us this past weekend and it was spectacular. He was incredibly professional, kind, and everything went off without a hitch. He answered all the questions I had quickly and expertly in the months leading up to the day and provided a lot of great information about ideas for the ceremony. On the day of, he was a very calming presence and directed us all smoothly.

    It was a pleasure to be part of your special day. Adding elements like your own personal vows, a reading by your brother and the sand ceremony made it unique to the two of you. I wish you many years of happiness!

    Professional, engaging and helpful

    Patrick was a fantastic officiant. Our guests commented how much they liked the ceremony and his delivery. He worked well with us remotely prior to the event, but nothing was missing and he was a pleasure to work with. Very professional throughout, and made everything easier for us. I would recommend Patrick to anyone getting married in Canmore or Banff.
