    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.

    Our guests said it was the most personal and beautiful ceremony they'd ever seen!

    Searching for an officiant, we knew immediately when we found Tade that she was the one. We wanted to make our ceremony special and personal, and she gave us every confidence that she could do that with us. She arranged a skype call to get to know each other, during which she was just as we had expected - warm, genuine, and knowledgeable. She sent us a template to start editing, giving us total license to write what felt right to us, or choose some of her own wording. She directed us to her website, where she shares so much information and inspiration for different unity ceremonies, how to write your own vows, the administrative process of getting married in Ontario, and so much more. And she makes this all available for free, even if you aren't hiring her, which shows her true motivation for doing what she does - she genuinely wants to help couples to have the best wedding ceremonies they can dream of. She was incredibly responsive as we sent multiple emails in the leadup to the day as we made edits to our ceremony together with her. She knows weddings, and she had a lot of good suggestions from her experience, such as which order to put our readings in, how many bits and pieces we could fit, and really unique ideas for readings and photo ops. On the day, she was the perfect mix of warm and assertive - telling our wedding party and guests where to be and what to do without seeming bossy. She just has this air of knowing exactly what she is doing, so everyone just does what she says. It was so calming to have her there, she reminded us and our party about what we had practiced, but also let us know that if we forgot everything, she would handle it and make sure we did what we were supposed to. During the ceremony she spoke with such warmth and genuineness, it felt really personal. We got so many compliments on our ceremony, many saying it was the best, most personal and beautiful ceremony they'd ever seen. Ours was non-religious though we both come from religious families, so we were surprised to hear such genuine positive feedback even from our most traditional Catholic family members. None of this would have been possible without Tade. We would 100% recommend her, hands down.
