Patrick was so nice to work with from start to finish, he was very responsive and helpful in the planning stage. We didn't meet him until rehearsal the day before our wedding and we were instantly comfortable around him. He's such a friendly guy, but he's also straight to the point. The ceremony was beautiful! We could not have asked for more. I would recommend Patrick to everyone looking in the area!Sent on 28/11/2019

Patrick was great!
Patrick was great and made everything super easy, didn't have to worry about too much on the day. My wife and I were comfortable off the bat with Patrick, and he made the ceremony fun and relaxed. Was a perfect day!Sent on 07/11/2019

Patrick did a great job bringing our story to life. We live far away, so most communication was done digitally. He was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. Very helpful, and guided us through the process to ensure we had the perfect ceremony for us. If you’re in the area, highly recommend!Sent on 21/10/2019

Patrick was our wedding commissioner at Two Jack Lake in Canmore. We are from Florida and had never been out to Canada. He was very helpful while we tried to decide on a location. He was very friendly and responsive. We ended up changing the location a few days before the wedding and he had no issues. He put together a beautiful ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. He was funny at times but also very heartfelt and sincere. We are so thankful that we chose Patrick!Sent on 15/09/2019
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Thank you for your review Marty.

Patrick did a fantastic job officiating our wedding in Canmore, Alberta. He was easy to communicate with, worked with us to plan a personalized program and delivered a clear, meaningful ceremony. Our guests have given us many compliments on Patrick's professionalism and the way he told our love story (he's a great storyteller too!). Thank-you Patrick, you made our wedding run very smoothly, and were also warm and caring to help calm our nerves!Sent on 08/08/2019

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.Sent on 05/06/2019
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Congratulations again and it was an honour to be part of your special day. From the Candle Lighting In Memory to your choice of readings and the hand-fasting ceremony, I am sure that your wedding day will be something you and your guests will fondly remember for years to come.

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!Sent on 22/05/2019
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Thank you for your review Adele. It was a pleasure to be a part of your special day.

Great personalized experience
We hired Patrick as our commissioner for our wedding. He was very friendly and did an amazing job! I felt completely at ease working with him and was able to help customize our ceremony. He made us up a personalized booklet of our ceremony complete with our vows. I am very happy that we chose him as our commissioner and would definitely recommend him.Sent on 14/06/2019
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Thank you for letting me a part of your wedding day and I am happy that you like like the keepsake booklet of your ceremony. You put a lot of thought into what you wanted your ceremony to be and it was an honour to perform it. Congratulations once again and I wish you both all the best!

The BEST Commissioner
We are so happy we picked Patrick as our commissioner for our elopement at Lake Louise! He made our ceremony all the more special with both his professionalism and humor. Following our ceremony, he obliged our request to do his "impressive clergyman" from The Princess Bride and it did not disappoint! We highly recommend Patrick!Sent on 07/07/2019
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Princess Bride is a fairy tale, but Lake Louise is a fairy-tale location you can go to in real life. It is fun to mix the two! It was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding day and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.

Wonderful marriage commissioner
We hired Patrick as our marriage commissioner and were so happy we did! He was always very responsive to our emails and very helpful in choosing readings and writing our own personal vows. We ended up holding an outdoor ceremony in the snow and he was very flexible, adding touches of humour to the ceremony that helped lighten the mood. We can't recommend Patrick enough!Sent on 11/05/2019
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:From your personal vows to the tree planting ceremony, the guests had a good reasons to sit through the snow pellets and share your ceremony with you. I am sure everyone warmed up quickly with all the hugs once they got back inside!
