Wouldof liked a different officiant
Our officiant John was not the greatest. Our rehearsal was rushed because we were late which is understandable but he didn't ask us how we wanted the ceremony to go, he basically "told" us what would happen. The day of he was demanding money before the ceremony and being rude to my day of coordinator. I was surprised when she told me afterwards. If you are a younger couple I would reccomend finding a different officiant. I don't like to write bad reviews but I was upset and trying not to show it on our wedding day because of this officiant.Sent on 08/09/2018

We had the pleasure of John overseeing our ceremony. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and our guests were raving about how personable he was. He included our children in the cutest and best way, he was accommodating, flexible, and very easy yo talk to. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant!Sent on 13/11/2017

Working with John & Richard was an absolute pleasure! We booked with them only a few months before our wedding and were very pleased to hear that they were available. John sent us a booklet via the mail with some sample ceremonies as well as any information necessary to book our day with them. Richard was our officiant and he was lovely to work with. He called to discuss with us what we were looking for and to ask us about our day so that he could personalize our ceremony. He was very responsive to emails and sent us a draft of the ceremony shortly after we chatted. He was accommodating to all our changes/requests and met with us so that we could have a rehearsal the week before the big day. He helped calm our nerves, guided us with how the day would go and even found a way to include my step daughter in "signing" our papers. Overall a wonderful experience and would recommend them to anyone looking for an officiant!Sent on 24/05/2017

We had Richard Moore officiate our wedding this past weekend and he was great. We are so happy with how smooth our ceremony went. Richard was easy to reach and worked with us to plan a ceremony that fit both our personalities. My husband and I both highly recommend York Region Wedding Officiants.Sent on 11/11/2016
