The best officiant in Toronto

Tade is amazing! We had seen her officiate our friends ceremony and knew we wanted to have her do our own. We ended up asking her come to our home for a paper signing and she made it a truly special experience. I would highly recommend her for any type of wedding officiating service.

A truly unique officiant who was a bundle of joy

From the moment we first met you, it was clear that you weren't just an officiant, but someone who genuinely cared about us and our story. Your efforts to understand us and connect with us on a personal level meant the world to us. Your sincerity and warmth put us at ease, and we knew right away that we were in good hands.

On the day of the wedding, your presence was like a ray of sunshine amidst the nervous excitement. You took the time to speak to each and every person present, making everyone feel included and valued. Your ability to create such a safe and welcoming atmosphere did not go unnoticed, and it set the perfect tone for the day.

Despite the unexpected rain towards the end of the ceremony, your quick thinking and efficiency ensured that everything ran smoothly. Your decision to speed things up to spare us from the rain was a testament to your dedication and care for our well-being.

Tade, you truly went above and beyond our expectations, and we are so grateful to have had you as our officiant. You played such a significant role in making our wedding day a beautiful and memorable occasion, and we cannot thank you enough for that.

The best wedding officiant, recommend to everyone!

Tade was absolutely wonderful, we cannot say enough good things about her! We are eloping in June to Italy, so we did the legal paperwork signing with her. She explained the process very clearly and made it fun! She also helped us (especially me haha) stay calm and enjoy the moment, and made our simple paper signing still feel so special. She is a lovely kind person, and her positive energy is exactly what you want on your special day. She even emailed us afterwards with instructions on how to apply for our marriage certificate. We feel so taken care of! You won't be disappointed with Tade as your officiant, she is absolutely amazing!

We loved our experience with Tade!

We had a destination wedding so we just needed to get legally married in Canada and Tade was the best. She is super fast at replying emails, and explains the whole process very well! The "ceremony" was quick and easy just the way we wanted. Would 100% recommend!!

Great, thank you for this day ☺️

We are so glad we chose Tade for our special day. She arranged for us more romance than we expected from this process. Also, communication with her throughout the process was quick, professional and clear. Thank you for being with us on this day!

You made our day special!

Tade officiated our ceremony with such elegance! In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we made the choice to travel and obtain our marriage certificate in Canada. Despite our tight schedule and tiredness from a long flight and jet lag, our mood quickly changed when we met Tade at this beautiful park. With a big smile on her face, she welcomed us and our friends. She handled everything superbly despite being non-native speakers, which could have been awkward.
Thank you so much for making our ceremony special and wonderful! Our friends recommended you so much, and I am glad that I asked you to officiate our ceremony.

Wish we could take her with us on our destination wedding!!

Tade was so incredible, she made us feel so at ease and explained the process clearly. She even gave my (now) husband advice on how to avoid stepping on my train and veil on the wedding day.

We couldn't be more happy with our choice for an officiant, we wish we could take her with us on our destination wedding! I strongly recommend choosing Tade as your officiant whether you're doing paperwork only or having her officiate on the wedding day, she is incredible!!!

Lighthearted and Stress-Free Ceremony

Right from the beginning, Tade did a great job in working with us to build our perfect ceremony. Her wealth of experience really helped to guide us and answer any questions that we did have. With her input, we were able to combine various cultural traditions that were important to both our families into a wedding ceremony that worked for us.

On the day of the ceremony, Tade's calm and friendly demeanor, and her knowledge helped everything run smoothly. She was able to guide our wedding party on the specifics of the traditional components of our ceremony. We received great praise from our guests about Tade's lighthearted and fun tone during the ceremony, that really suited our wedding.

10/10, would recommend!

The best officiant in Toronto!

Tade did an incredible job officiating our wedding. From the first planning meeting right through to the ceremony she was a joy to work with. She was so kind, knowledgeable, and clearly invested in creating a ceremony that would be meaningful for us. My partner and I come from different cultural/faith backgrounds and she crafted a custom ceremony for us incorporating our story and modified faith based elements. She also talked us through and took care of all the legal aspects so we didn't have to deal with them. I highly recommend doing the virtual rehearsal as the tips she provided were things we never would have thought of and made it so smooth and comfortable day of. After our ceremony multiple people complimented us on how special and enjoyable it was - we have recommended her to all our friends!
