Great old roman catholic ceremony
Stuart was very responsive over email from the get go and generally pretty patient in explaining to us the differences of the Old Roman Catholic church and the Roman Catholic Church.
It was important to us to integrate as much of the religious traditions into our outdoor ceremony as possible. We chose to do communion, as that was required for either a long-form or a short-form religious ceremony. While it did lengthen the schedule, it was a very inclusive and beautiful part of the mass and we wouldn’t change it.
The rehearsal dinner prep was essential to calming our nerves; gave us a sense of the religious vows, as we wanted to add some personal ones too. Stuart had a great sense of humour throughout the rehearsal and the ceremony itself, which kept our guests (and us) calm and entertained. Recommend ☺

There are not enough words to express our gratitude towards Stuart and the Officiant services he provided.
We initially had no plans to have a religious ceremony, but had some pushback from parents to get married in the Catholic Church (but not until after we had already booked a courtyard ceremony at Liberty Grand), and needed to try to find an option that would suit our tastes but also make sure our families were happy.
Our wedding planner suggested Stuart by name (a huge plus as she's a very experienced professional) and we quickly contacted Stuart about being our Officiant.
Our first meeting with Stuart was wonderful - he took the time to get to know us, learn about what we were hoping for in our wedding, and talk through all of our options in terms of ceremony length, inclusions, etc. He told us that he would support us in our decisions and help us to ensure that our wedding ceremony went the way we wanted to, regardless of familial pressures.
On the night of the rehearsal, he helped to keep our (huge) bridal party in check and focused - a welcome relief. The most complicated part of the ceremony would be who would hold his Bishop's staff during the ceremony! :) We asked him to join us at dinner and by the end of the night he was close friends with both sets of parents (an easy task as he is so personable and friendly).
Our Ceremony was beyond our imagination. Not only did Stuart keep our Catholic ceremony quick. he was light-hearted and and had everyone laughing throughout. He kept both of our nerves at bay and ensured that everything ran smoothly.
We would (and already do!) wholeheartedly recommend Stuart to anyone looking for a great Officiant, especially if they would like to include Catholic traditions with a more modern touch.
Stuart Watson was very professional, poise and most of all humourous! He made our semi-religious ceremony light-hearted for our outdoor occasoin, much to the delight and amusement of our guests on a hot summer day! He made the experience a unique and enjoyable one for everyone. Stuart was also very helpful in the planning process, and had lots of suggestions and ideas that didn't even cross our minds, and was very flexible in how the ceremony can be performed. He spent a lot of time getting to know us and made the whole process easy. Best of all, he seems to have a solution for everything, from the many scenarios he has experienced throughout the years. He was also keen to remind us about small but important items such as when to apply for license and wedding certificate, to make the whole thing as stress-free as possible.
We would highly recommend Stuart for anyone holding a wedding ceremony in the city of Toronto!
Stuart Watson is a fantastic officiant and a great person! He is professional, caring and funny. We enjoyed our experience so much that two other couples in our group of friends have used his services as well. Furthermore, he will also be baptizing our son. I strongly recommend his services to everyone!
I was recommended to Stuart by my cousin who he had married several years ago and I would highly recommend him to any couple looking for a wedding officiant as well. He made the process so easy and simple.
From our very first meeting, Stuart made it very clear that it was OUR day and he would customize and tailor to what we wanted and had envisioned for the ceremony. We were unsure if we wanted a religious ceremony at the beginning so Stuart gave us some samples that we looked at from previous ceremonies. We were able to pick and choose what we wanted and we ended up created something that was very memorable and personal to both my husband and I. Stuart was very helpful and asked us many questions about the planning and logistics that we would have overlooked. His many years of experience definitely showed as he walked us through everything. The paper work, who was going to walk when, who was going to hold what etc.
The ceremony itself was just perfect. Stuart kept it very light hearted which was exactly what we wanted. Our guests laughed and we were told they had a great time and many had complimented Stuart on his delivery as well as humour.
We are so happy that we chose Stuart to be our wedding officiant would highly highly recommend him to any couple looking to tie the knot :)
