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!Sent on 19/10/2020
The Marrying Lady's reply: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!

A truly wonderful experience.
While her reputation speaks for itself and we were very excited to have her preside over our ceremony, I honestly wasn’t prepared for how very, very good she is. From our initial calls to the FaceTime rehearsal to the ceremony, she was able to instruct and inform, calm us down, make us laugh, and capture our love and commitment with exceptional ease. I don’t know how she she makes the best day of your life better, but she does.Sent on 06/12/2020
