Heartwarming custom service
Jay, thanks so much again for being the star of the show at our wedding this summer. Honestly, people have come up to us repeatedly to let us know how much they enjoyed our ceremony. It was light, funny in places, heartfelt in other places, and altogether a fabulous representation of us and a great way to kick start our marriage.Sent on 24/04/2019

When looking for an officiant, you want professional but fun, you want education but don't want them to be stale and outdated.. Darian is all this and more! He is very organized, full of ideas to help guide you, open to new ideas, encouraging and overall the best officiant Ive encountered (as years being a guest). He works with you to streamline the process, so it doesn't take too much time, youve got a lot to do, and knowing this task has been simplified is a big weight off of your shoulders. He truly personalized the ceremony and set the tone for the rest of the evening. The ceremony was both touching and romantic, but also had us laughing and similing at other points. Give him your basic info, and he will take it from there, dont stress over what he will say in between because it will be perfect! We had many guests ask us afterwards how long we had known him, he had to be a fmaily friend they said, it felt like he had known us and our story for years. Highly recommend.Sent on 07/10/2015

We had the pleasure of attending a friends wedding to see Darian perform before we even got engaged. Once we started planning our own wedding, our first contact was Vancouver Officiant as we loved his work and he came highly recommended. He was happy to work through the process with us of designing a ceremony that embodied us a couple and represented our values together. Darian made the ceremony special with his smooth delivery of words, and made everyone feel as if they were all part of the ceremony with us. All of our guests commented on how awesome our officiant was and how he truly made the ceremony personal, memorable and a perfect fit for us. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Vancouver Officiant as the top choice in performing your ceremony!Sent on 29/09/2015

I met with Darian and was very excited to have him be a part of our special day. He assured me he would hold the date of my wedding for me and be in touch in a few months closer to the ceremony to start planning the ceremony. I asked if a deposit was needed and he promised me that wasn't necessary and gave me his word he would take care of us on the day of our wedding.Sent on 31/05/2015
Three months before our wedding, I received a causally worded email from his assistant. She said that Darian had some family stuff going on and already had lots of weddings this summer to do so wan't going to do my wedding. She asked if we needed a referral. I responded to the email that I was surprised and upset and asked why he wasn't keeping his word to me and no one contacted me again after that.
I was appalled they would just ditch me like that after giving me his word that he'd be our Officiant. I understand that life happens and I suppose there most be reasons why cancellations are needed, but with so much notice, you'd think he should have been able to make arrangements to make it work considering he'd already committed.
What is most hurtful is that no one bothered to even pick up the phone to talk to me. The email was so brief, they just really didn't care it is to be the most important day in my life. I guess it's just another job for Darian.
We had more problems with our wedding - the photographer cancelled too stating they may get sea sick and so many other issues, just actually cancelled the wedding after sending out invitations. It was heart-breaking. We'll elope instead.
Darian - you broke your word and let me down and the incredibly insensitive way in which you did it is inexcusable.
To all brides out there that deserve to have your special day respected and want to deal with an Officiant you can count on - I highly recommend you find someone else!
We could not have asked for our wedding ceremony to be any more perfect. That was all thanks to Darian. He made it personal, funny, sentimental and exciting for not only my husband and I but also, for all of our guests. We were so blown away by his ability to keep everyone engaged (and sometimes participating) the entire time. We were packed into our venue at Brix, and he made each and every person feel welcome and part of the ceremony. I highly recommend having Darian as your officiant, if you are looking to make your ceremony just as important as every other aspect of the day!Sent on 09/11/2015

After a quick Google search we met with Darian and knew that we wanted him to help us get married. while we felt confident that we knew what we wanted from a ceremony, Darian was there to answer questions, give suggestions and allow us to be present in the moment.Sent on 02/10/2015
We loved our ceremony and just as importantly our guests enjoyed it. They were made to feel that they were part of things. We had so much feedback that Darian was one of the best they had seen.
It was a great experience.

When my husband and I met with Darian for the first time we knew instantly that we wanted him to be our officiant. He is extremely down to earth and wants to ensure that you have the wedding ceremony you both are dreaming of. He was very pleasant to work with and our wedding was exactly what we hoped for. He was engaging with our guests and delivered a beautiful ceremony. Darian far surpassed our expectations and we would recommend him to anyone; in fact, we had newly engaged guests at our wedding ask for his contact information!Sent on 22/10/2015

We are from ontario and made all arrangements via email and they helped us to plan everything since we had never been to Fort Langley. Darian was fantastic and made the whole process easy for us. His suggestions made for beautiful backdrops for our pictures and we were thankful that he came up with some simple vows off the top of his head because we did not come prepared with any :)Sent on 29/09/2015
Thanks for being with us on our special day Darian.

Darian made us feel very at ease and comfortable at our first meeting so we hired him on the spot! Our guests loved him, the ceremony was great, we laughed and cried! Would thoroughly recommend Darian.Sent on 20/08/2015

Having a formal, sophisticated, emotional, and entertaining ceremony was important for my husband and I. We wanted the ceremony to be the focal point of our wedding day, and for it to stand out in our guests minds as much as any other element of our wedding. For this, Darian was a perfect fit! Many guests thought that Darian was a personal friend of ours likely because Darian took the time to get to know us and what our expectations were for our ceremony. He made everyone laugh, he made them cry, and he captured their attention for us. He helped us express our love before our dearest family and friends, and made them feel a part of our love story. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant.Sent on 10/10/2015
