    A big day made simple

    Tade is everything we wanted in an officiant, flexible and understanding. Leading up to our special day, Tade was receptive to every little detail and she was accommodating to our unique asks. The event went smoothly with her direction and all our guests had nothing but great things to say with the experience.
    Thank you Tade for making our day that much worry and stress free!

    HIGHLY recommend!

    My partner and I are having our official wedding and ceremony in Barbados with our friends and family but since we're using a family member to Officiate, we can't actually legally get married there. We wanted to just get the legal documents signed here in Canada and to keep it very low-key with our two witnesses. Little did we know, Tade would make the day incredibly special. She shared some great advice and had us all laughing the entire time. The day turned out to be incredibly memorable and way more "special" than we really expected. Thank you so much Tade!!

    Get married with The Marrying Lady!

    We couldn't have dreamed up a better officiant than Tade! We were married two weeks ago and we're still getting emails and calls about how wonderful she was. She is a true professional and guided us through the process with ease. She made us so comfortable on the day and our ceremony was filled with love and laughter. We could hear cheers before the ceremony started as she was warming up the guests, and she included guest interaction in the ceremony, which we loved. We're so glad we were able to have Tade marry us, we can't recommend her highly enough!

    Wonderful Ceremony

    Tade is a really wonderful person. We searched far and wide for an officiant who we can feel comfortable with as we are a very shy couple, and of course she did not disappoint! Definitely the best officiant not only in Toronto but in Canada! Would strongly advice for you to book with her. She is responsive to emails, very helpful, and a gentle but loving soul. You rock, Tade. Thank you for our wonderful ceremony.

    The perfect officiant!!

    Tade is everything I could've asked for in an officiant and more. Truly, a vibrant and positive spirit with a ton of patience and warmth in every dealing with my wife and I. Of all the unpredictable aspects of COVID wedding planning, Tade gave us all the reassurances and guidance that we needed to have the most memorable ceremony. We are sooo lucky to have had her as part of our special day and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone!!!

    Tade is one of a kind AMAZING

    Tade was wonderful to work with - she made it so easy to customize our ceremony and modernize it which was absolutely needed given that we are coming from 2 different backgrounds (Jewish + Persian). We added a few components to our ceremony that I didn't even know about beforehand that we found out about by looking through her amazing website. She went through the ceremony with us beforehand over Skype and it made the day of go really smoothly. She also had lots of excellent tips about how to pose ourselves so that we would have great pictures. Would highly recommend her to anybody. She is awesome!

    Professional, Friendly, Awesome!

    Tade was absolutely brilliant. She was so willing to work around our annoying schedule changes, and made the two of us getting married in the middle of a park on a sunny day a truly perfect moment. She had the most calming, relaxed tone of voice, made such an effort to make sure that our pictures and video came out in the right light, the right position, and was just all round pleasant to be around - Tade went above and beyond what we had hoped for in an officiant. Tade was so helpful, so lovely, so friendly - we really could not have envisioned a better ceremony!

    Amazing Ceremony!

    Tade is a fantastic and very knowledgeable officiant. She was incredibly helpful and supportive during the process of postponing our wedding due to COVID19. When our wedding day finally arrived, Tade was punctual, informative and very personable! We received so many compliments on the ceremony from our guests (both in person and virtual guests). She has our highest recommendation!
