    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!

    Rev. Matty Was Amazing!

    We had to postpone our wedding and change our date more than a few times throughout the pandemic, and Rev. Matty was so flexible and responsive - it really made a stressful situation so much easier. All of our guests remarked at how lovely our ceremony was, and Rev. Matty just had this gentle, soft nature about him that really put our wedding jitters at ease. We were so glad we chose him to marry us.

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Drew!
    I really enjoyed being a part of your wedding to Kyle! You were both delightful to work with and the hilltop ceremony was dreamy! Thanks for the experience!

    The Good Reverend Matty is Amazing

    Reverend Matty was organized and adventurous, a tough combo to find. He surprised us with his patience (we were late !) and with his willingness to meet us where we wanted to marry. (At the top of a cliff on the edge of Lake Huron in January !) We will always remember his gentle way and his excellent choice of words for our adventure ceremony. Thank you so much to The Good Reverend Matty for blessing and for officiating our union in the eyes of God. You were perfect !!

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    It would be unprofessional for me to play favourites, so let me instead say that your wedding (and location!!!) was an absolute delight to be a part of. Thank you for the opportunity! And congratulations!!

    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.

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    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!

    Thank You Rev. Matty!

    It was such a pleasure having Rev. Matty as the officiant to both our weddings. My husband and I had to ceremonies: our mini ceremony with just our parents due to the pandemic, and our big ceremony with all our friends and family up north. Rev. Matty travelled great distances for both ceremonies to marry us, and we are so grateful that he did. In our meetings, Rev. Matty took in the details about our vision for our wedding, and the various traditional elements we wanted to include. He factored these details into the wedding script/template we would follow, and it captured everything we wanted in our ceremonies perfectly. Of course, with both ceremonies being outdoor, there were a few natural interruptions that could not be avoided. Rev. Matty took those and rolled with it so effortlessly. It was such a pleasure having Rev. Matty marry us. Thank you, Rev. Matty!

    The Good Reverend Matty's reply:

    Theresa!
    Thank you for the kind words! You and Steve were a pleasure to get to know, and work with! I think you hold the record for longest time and distance between ceremonies! Both locations were lovely, though! It was my pleasure.

    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!

Reverend For Hire!

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.
