    The One For The Job!

    We met with Matty virtually over zoom, and instantly knew that he was the man to marry us. He is so personable and knowledgeable about what he does. Super professional, and has an attention to detail! We can’t wait for Matty to marry us next year!

    Excellent!!

    We had a great time with Matty on our wedding day. Even in the uncertain times of COVID, with weather not supporting our wedding day, Matty was very patient and kind.

    He took time before the wedding to go over every detail of the ceremony.

    We had an amazing experience with Matty officiating our wedding. I would definitely be recommending him to my other friends as well.

    Gurleen!

    Your wedding was wonderful! You transformed the backyard into such a beautiful space! I was honoured to have been a part of your big day! Thanks!

    Highly recommend!

    Matty went above and beyond. From the first time we spoke with him, we knew he was the person we wanted to have officiate our wedding. He was very responsive to emails, helped us with endless edits of the ceremony script and even suggested the location we used for our elopement (he even got up to marry us at sunrise). I would recommend Matty to anyone getting married. He is friendly, professional and made the process of getting the ceremony planned so much easier and carefree. Thank you again Matty!

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Maggie!

    You hold the record for earliest wedding! I loved meeting all three of you down on the beach- it was a wonderful way to start the day! Thank you!

    Great experience!

    Was a pleasure to work with Matty, we met online on zoom to go over details and were given different script options to work with and we were also able to make a few changes to make the script our own. Made our small ceremony memorable and effortless (and also very affordable).

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Heli!

    Your wedding was a lot of fun! I liked that we used your new home as the setting! It was a joy to work with you both! Thanks!

    Matty was Amazing

    Matty was such an amazing officiant. Right from the start we knew we were in good hands. Matty's prompt responses to our e-mails, and personalized ceremony options let us know we had booked a professional. On the day, we were relaxed and confident that everything was going to off without an issue with Matty officiating our service, he was early, prepared and had every detail looked after ahead of time. We without hesitation would recommend The Good Reverend Matty for your upcoming nuptials.

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Elizabeth!

    Your wedding was delightful! Your lovely home was the perfect setting for an intimate, sweet celebration. Thank you for including me in your big day!

    Amazing day!

    We had some last minute changes to our wedding and Matty was there to save the day! We had our first meeting over zoom and instantly clicked! He wrote a very lovely ceremony for my husband and I and was always available via email for any questions we had. Even after our wedding day, he was always quick to reply with answering my questions. Highly recommend him!

    Thank you Reverend Matty!

    Reverend Matty was wonderful, super responsive, accommodating and kind. He did a lovely job of supporting us on our special day. He really helped bring things together for us, and his reassuring glances through all of the intense emotions were so steadying, thank you.

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words, Jane! I was honoured to be a part of your lovely wedding to Rick! You are both great people and have a wonderful family!

    The best and trendiest officiant ever!

    Matty is absolutely wonderful. For personal reasons, we needed papers signed one day and ceremony another day and Matty was super flexible and accommodating which made both those days stress-free and relaxed (which are often ironic words to use for a wedding). For all you nervous grooms, he does a great job calming those pre-ceremony jitters before your bride walks down the aisle, my husband was super grateful for that. He's also super trendy so he'll look great in your photos :)

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Aw shucks! You and Stefan are the sweetest! I am honoured to have been able to help!

    Getting a chance to speak with Stefan beforehand was a pleasure for me, too! You are both lovely people!

    Here's to a hundred happy years together!

    Great wedding!

    Many thanks to Rev Matty for his flexibility and professionalism during these crazy Covid times. The ceremony was lovely and he helped us to incorporate our daughter with family vows. We kept things simple and sweet, it wad just the ticket! Thank you!!

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Veronica!
    I loved being a part of your big day! You are the only wedding I've done that had actual living butterflies become part of your bouquet! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Best addition to our wedding!

    Due to COVID, we had to make a lot of changes to our wedding, but Rev. Matty made that so easy for us, he was incredibly helpful, so kind and so accommodating during this time. He worked with us to create a perfect ceremony for us! Our family and friends loved him and his personality and what he added to our wedding. Can't recommend him enough!

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Nav!

    You're too sweet! I enjoyed working with you both! Your wedding was in such a lovely spot and you're all such nice people! A true pleasure!

After earning a masters degree in Religious Studies, I realized that life is often defined by how we mark an occasion, how we celebrate, and the ceremonies we participate in.

With a desire to help people mark the important moments in their lives, I established The Centre for the Embrace of Beauty in the Absurd. As an ordained minister, I can officiate weddings, vow renewals, celebration of life ceremonies, baby-naming rituals and more. I have been officiating weddings since 2010, and love meeting and working with each new couple. As a reverend in a non-denominational organization, I can help with any ceremonial need. I am here to help.
