Phil made ours a magical ceremony
I can't say enough great things about Phil. Even through COVID, and not being able to meet in person as we would have liked, my husband and I felt like we knew him. He catered to all our requests, even at the last minute. He has a wonderful commanding voice, that is warm but easy to hear. Our ceremony was brief as it was cold outside, but it was still warm, personal with lots of laughter. It was a magical day and we can't thank Phil enough.Sent on 06/01/2021

Phil is great!
As with most 2020 weddings, we had to make numerous changes to our wedding plans. Phil rolled with all the changes made and was a calming influence every time we chatted. The ceremony he created in the end was beautiful and we were so grateful to have him officiate our wedding!Sent on 20/10/2020

Amazing guy! Amazing Officiant!
Philip was the speaker during the funeral of my husband's step-father and the officiant for our special day! He proved that he can truly do it all and holds a special place in our hearts. He was funny and uplifting during our rehearsal and great on the day of the event! He was able to make my nervous maid of honour laugh at herself and feel comfortable, reminded us subtly about steps we forgot during the rehearsal and ceremony. Overall, he makes you feel like a friend is performing the ceremony and that the day is about the love you and your husband share. He is not too serious, not overly a stand-up comedian, but just the right fit! Thank you for making our wedding a day we will never forget!Sent on 09/10/2020

A dream come true
From the first time we met Philip, we could tell he was a perfect fit for our wedding day. He did a great job at making us feel comfortable and making sure we were able to enjoy our big day. Our guest loved him equally as much as we did. I hope we’re lucky enough to attend another wedding where Philip is the officiant.Sent on 31/10/2020
