Officiant

Hi all,

I need to start looking for an officiant, and have no idea how to go about doing this.  Any advice?  Thanks! 

Some info, we are in Toronto, and not having a church ceremony.

    Hi Laura,

    Check out the following website: http://weddingstoronto.ca/wedding-officiants.cfm. They have a huge list of officiants there.

    Jeremy Citron comes recommended from another site I'm on. His site is www.allyouneedislove.ca/Weddings/Home.html" target="_blank">http://www.allyouneedislove.ca/Weddings/Home.html.

    Another bride mentioned All Seasons Weddings but I believe it's the same as weddingstoronto.ca.  Hope that helps.

    We used Garry & Anne from http://whiteorchidweddingceremonies.com/ - H and I loved our ceremony so much and we had a lot of comments from the guests about how good it was.  It costs a lot to get 2 instead of 1, but we thought it was worth it :)

    I'm going to chime in and highly recommend Jeremy Citron.  He has been truly amazing so far, and I am so glad we managed to book him.  He's funny, devoted, extremely helpful (I'm legally changing my first name after marriage as well as last, and he gave me tips to reduce costs on THAT), and everything is very customized to your wishes. 

    I mean, how many officiants are happily going to pronounce you partners in crime?
  • I would never recommend All Seasons. We booked, paid, and had a date with All Seasons.

    After organizing our date, meeting with the officiant, paying our deposit and hearing endless speeches of how committed and organized they are AND how officiant's must give their schedule and availability months and months in advance ... they cancelled. 

    There was no backup.  No person to fill in.  No attempt to help us find someone else.  No phone call.  Just an email with "your officiant cancelled and good luck and have a great day".  Really?!  That's what you have to say after you cancel and we have no one to marry us?  "Have a great day"??? 

    I had specifically asked what would happen if our officiant couldn't make it - illness, whatever and I was told that they would have a replacement.   No.  They don't have replacements. 

    Book with All Seasons at your own risk ... you may end up like us - receiving a cold email where they didn't care about us at all - AND with no one to marry us!

    I would never ever ever recommend them.
