    Fun. Engaging. Memorable. Professional.

    Our guests raved about Tade. She was engaging and fun. She made our ceremony special and memorable. The whole experience in dealing with Tade was fantastic.

    Tade, again a huge thank you for making our wedding a wonderful and special moment in our lives.

    She is magic

    My (now) husband, Rico, and I found Tade on our search for a personable officiant to perform a very private paper-signing ceremony. We chatted briefly upon booking and, even though it was brief, we felt confident in our choice.

    What Rico and I never expected was to be married by someone who could make us laugh out loud, cry real hard and feel like we left as friends.

    We miss you Tade and if it was allowed, we would get married again just to re-live that experience with you.

    If you need an officiant in Toronto, look no further. She's got it.

    I could not recommend more!

    Tade came highly recommended by our wedding planner and, boy, did she deliver. She made the entire process clear, simple and - ultimately - fantastic all the way through. Not only is she a wonderful person to be around, but her calming presence and demeanor is 100% what you will want/need on your big day. We received so many compliments on our choice of officiant from our guests - you all need to hire this lady. The Marrying Lady is pure magic.

    The perfect officiant!

    If you want to get married, you want Tede to be the one that marries you. Trust us! From our first skype call with her we knew she was the one to marry us. She's turned marrying people into an art! We felt instantly comfortable with her as she walked us through her process, her thoughts, what questions we needed to be asking of officiants and her pricing structure. When we met with her for the pre-wedding consultation, the amount of little details and flourishes she added turn the ceremony from something routine to something magical. Everyone at our wedding commented on what an amazing job Tede did. She keeps the energy up, keeps people smiling and really does manage to fill the room with love.
