    Wonderful Experience

    Tade is extremely professional, reliable, friendly and compassionate. Her calm and peaceful demeanor made our wedding a beautiful event. As everybody probably is, we were nervous about our big day but Tade made us feel so comfortable and made it very easy to get through.

    There really isn't another Tade!

    We were so lucky to have had Tade officiate our civil ceremony! Truly.
    She is a testament to how simplicity is indeed elegance and will do everything she can to ensure that her couples are not losing the joy of the moment trying to navigate the legalities. She makes it so easy with her comprehensive emails and ample yet thoughtful options.
    When Tade heard that our friend would be officiating on the big day, she went above and beyond to give us a plethora of tips including recording a dreamy vow for us, teaching our Maid of Honor and my father how to navigate the train, and even helped us the master the wedding kiss!
    When you meet her, you'll immediately know how much Tade loves what she does and wow, is she truly masterful at it!

    Seamless Wedding Experience with Tade

    Tade is AMAZING! 👍 We were looking to get a very simple civic wedding, with just two of our close friends as witnesses and she was able to accommodate and provide just that. We contacted her online and she responded very quickly with all details (explained so well) on the process and where to meet etc. The location is also so lovely and we couldn't have asked for better on a gorgeous summer day in June (perfect for Toronto!). Although we opted just for paperwork and expected it to be just that, Tade made it enjoyable with simple questions & her beautiful, joyous spirit! I would highly recommend Tade to anyone who is looking for an officiant as she truly is the ideal marrying lady 🌟

    Tade is the absolute Best Officiant and brought joy, humour, inclusiveness and warmth to our ceremony, including our guests and even our ring bearing puppy in an absolutely wonderfully personalized wedding that reflected the two of us!!! Five Star all the Way and am still hearing from guests about our wonderful Officiant and Best Ever wedding!!!

    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!!

    Delightful

    Tade was a delight to have as our officiant on our wedding day! She was responsive with all emails, all questions and concerns we had prior to the wedding date. After the wedding she also connected with us to provide relevant information on how to proceed a.ka. next steps after being married relating to documentation.

    Simply the best

    Tade is such an amazing officiant. She is easy to talk to and very entertaining when relating tips and important info. I think she is passionate about what she does because when she spoke at our wedding you can hear it in her voice. She made us feel much more confident and comfortable as we were both nervous, during our zoom run through and during the ceremony as well. Better book her in advance!
