    Highly Recommend

    My husband and I had a great experience with Ben as our officiant. He was very responsive to emails and guided us through the entire process with all the information we needed from start to finish. Ben was also willing to travel to our location to make our dream location come true. Cannot thank him enough for his professionalism and being part of our day!

    Greatest hike ever

    Ben was awesome. Very flexible in the sense that he accommodated to the fact that we wanted to be married at welsford falls. Plus he had fantastic boots! It truly was a joy to have him marry us. Ben kept us informed the entire time and was extremely helpful in all aspects of knowing what to expect for the paperwork to come! He was lovely and is very personable!

    Whitney Weddings's reply:

    Thanks so much for your kind review Courtney! It was a pleasure to meet you folks and to officiate your ceremony, and my goodness what a beautiful location at Welsford Falls. Truly unforgettable! All the best.

    Ben made our wedding a breeze!

    Ben was able to accommodate everything my partner and I needed for our wedding day! He met with us a couple times so that he could understand exactly what we wanted for our ceremony and walked us through exactly what documentation we needed. He was able to accommodate our busy schedules and is very responsive to questions by email. He provided us with various ideas and examples of what our ceremony could look like and took all of the guesswork out of the process, while still taking who we are as a couple into consideration. I couldn’t imagine having done this without his help.

    Whitney Weddings's reply:

    Thanks so much for the kind words Mel! It was a pleasure to officiate for you folks, I will certainly always look fondly back on your ceremony. All the best!

    Amazing Officiant!

    Ben was an excellent officiant! He was very helpful with giving us guidance on the ceremony and taking us through the legal requirements of getting married, gave us all the details on what we needed to get. He was able to meet with us when needed and responds to emails quickly. He was really easy going and a good sport with our quirky bits and jokes for our ceremony. Can’t recommend him enough!

    Whitney Weddings's reply:

    Thanks so much for the kind words Natalie. I had a blast officiating for you folks in St. Andrews. The big day was beautiful and I felt so fortunate to play a small part. All the best!

Officiant

I'm a 30-year-old lawyer living in New Brunswick, and I love to spend my spare time officiating weddings! I conducted my first two ceremonies for friends in 2019, but I had such fun that I started trying to meet and officiate for new folks too. 20+ weddings later and I am enjoying every moment of getting to meet new couples and help make their big day special.

In my free time I can usually be found spending time with friends and family, reading, watching football, sampling the latest craft beer, or trying to meet new dogs. I love live music, travelling, and experiencing all that New Brunswick has to offer.

Send me a message and I'd love to chat about how I can help make your wedding awesome!
