    Fun Professional Calming

    I actually discovered Tade and her amazing work on Wedding Wire- and I'm glad I did! Tade was a pleasure to work with. We always felt we could reach out to her with questions and concerns, and she would answer promptly. Tade is accommodating with requests within your ceremony and very understanding. She is helpful in making the ceremony organized and it assisted us in confidence. At the actual ceremony, it was lovely to see Tade there, smiling. She is very clever and witty, she puts everyone at ease - especially the bride and groom! Her voice is extremely soothing which also breaks the tension of the ceremony. Tade is conscious of photography and the ceremony. She takes the time and effort to observe where she stands and how that impacts photos and the atmosphere between the bride and groom. Her smile is very reassuring and sets everyone at ease. Tade is also accepting and embraces differences, which is one of many things that we liked about her work. She is experienced and very knowledgable of weddings. We were so happy Tade was there to officiate our ceremony.She makes the ceremony memorable and special. Well spoken and eloquent. I highly recommend Tade if you want a smooth, pleasant, upbeat wedding ceremony. You will not regret it!

    What a wonderful review Alanna, thank you! Not everyone recognizes the 'little things' that add the excitement during the day, but also capture it in the best possible ways, but YOU did. Thank you for this wonderful review. I read it and thought, she sees how much I love my job ;) This is awesome!

    Our day was special and unique!

    We didn't expect to have such an intimate and sweet ceremony. Thank you Tade for this and we will always cherish that day.

    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.
