Testimonials


Phil was our wedding officiant on August 13th at the St Elias Centre in Ottawa. We have nothing but amazing things to say about Phil. We contacted Phil by phone since we live out of town and from the second we started talking we absolutely loved everything about him. Phil is a very caring person with a fantastic sense of humour. He guided us through the entire process and calmed our nerves when needed. As we had no wedding planner, Phil came the night before the wedding and assisted us with the rehearsal of the ceremony. Had it not been for Phil’s expertise and welcoming personality we would have been so lost and disorganized the day of the wedding. Our friends and family were also so grateful for Phil’s help. Phil is a very organized man and is able to provide any kind of ceremony that is requested. He forwarded us a variety of scripts well in advance and we were able to pick and choose the ones we liked. Phil then reviewed the choices and personalized them to our liking. We highly recommend Phil to anyone looking for a wedding officiant or looking to renew their vows! We couldn’t be happier with his service and our day would have not been as special as it was without him!

Hi Phil, It was a pleasure for both of us working with you these past few months and you helped put our minds at ease knowing the biggest part of our day would be handled with care! Everything from your flexible meeting schedule, website and your calm manner were all amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant!!

Take care and thanks again, Brent


Hi Phil! Thank you so much for everything! We absolutely love how well the ceremony went and got so many amazing reactions about it. The amount of people that came to us and commented specifically on the ceremony and said they absolutely loved it was amazing. If we have any feedback it is certainly all positive... We loved the meetings throughout the process to help us understand and plan the process. The website you gave us to plan the
ceremony was easy to use. We appreciated having such a kind and sincere man who listened to what we wanted and guided a ceremony that suited us.

Thanks for everything! Tara & Mark


Hi Phil! Thank you for all of your help and guidance through the wedding and the time before. You were a great help with everything and very supportive. We both think you did a wonderful job at the ceremony. Very relaxed and for sure looked in your comfort zone. It was hot and humid...but I, myself, didn't seem to notice as much as others. We are extremely happy with everything. Especially your improv with the Ukrainian cloth for the hand-fasting ceremony. You did extremely well and sounded like you were speaking from the heart. So in that, we thank you very much. Thank you for being a part of our day and thank you for making us feel more comfortable with the day. We are extremely pleased with everything. Working with you and
how the ceremony flowed. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to marry us!

Hi Phil, It was a blessing in disguise that we found you to help our day go so well. Working with you was so easy and you made us less nervous throughout the whole event. You are someone who is always there to help out with whatever is needed and always on our toes when things needed to get done. On our special day, you made it so much more relaxed and you entertained everyone at the ceremony. Everyone was pleased with your service and we would recommend you to everyone we know in the future. Phil, thank you so much for everything you have done for us. We couldn't have asked for a better person in our ceremony.
