Ontario Gay & Lesbian Wedding Ceremonies is pleased to make the following wedding resources available to you. While every effort has been made to ensure the quality of the services listed, we can neither warrant nor recommend their suitability to your specific ceremony.
Our officiant, Chris McGrath, was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was flexible about accommodating our unique needs, taking the time to answer our questions and make adjustments for our day. He intuitively understood the dynamics of making an interfaith intercultural ceremony work beautifully for both families. He has a wonderful presence and had a smart and reassuring approach that any couple would benefit from, but as a gay couple, we found particularly wonderful. Carl and Suneel June 2020

Robin (Smith) was amazing! She helped us feel comfortable and guided us through what was a very nervous experience (as we are both shy in front of crowds). During both our phone meeting and in-person meetings before the event, she was an incredibly calm presence in helping us know what our next steps were, as well as making sure that we were able to form a ceremony that complemented us as a couple. We wanted a comfortable back yard wedding, and her presence was perfectly suited to the feeling of family that we were looking for. As an LGTBQ couple (my partner and I are both legally female, I identify as female and my partner identifies non-binary), we also found that Robin was exceptionally understanding and accommodating to our wishes for terms used within the ceremony. We were also pleased to hear of her long history of involvement with marriage equality. Would absolutely recommend her to any couple!
"Danielle King, the pleasure was all ours, because of you and your beautiful words our wedding day has proved to be the best day of our lives! Words cannot express the gratitude we have for you being there and performing the ceremony for us... Again, thank you so much!"

Carl Knutson performed an absolutely beautiful ceremony. The words were his own and we couldn’t have asked for more true and meaningful ones. It was just perfect and we were so grateful to have his guidance as we worked to figure out what we wanted our ceremony to look like based on his suggestions and our wishes. In the end, we thought it was absolutely true to the two of us. We got many comments on what an accomplished speaker he was and how incredibly adept he was at putting us at ease. We couldn’t have been happier!

Kathleen, you exceeded our expectations and gave us the ceremony we dreamed of. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. Thank you for making our day a memorable and perfect celebration.

Sue (Kellison) officiated at our wedding on Saturday, 2 July 2016 at The Courtyard Restaurant. Sue was professional, warm, welcoming and reassuring to both Michael and myself. She communicated clearly before the wedding and it felt like we had known her for years. She clearly explained the procedures and format of the ceremony and during the ceremony, when we both became emotional, Sue reassured us and allowed us time to compose ourselves, she even provided tissue. The most amazing thing about Sue is the way she read the ceremony that we had written. She read it as if it was her own ceremony, with passion, emotion, and beauty. We had a Lord of the Rings Themed ceremony and Sue had to read names of different realms of Middle Earth as well as declare, "Bring forth the rings." She did this with great enthusiasm and created an environment of intimacy, making Mike and I feel as if we were the only ones in the room, but still making our guests feel a part of the ceremony. Many guests complemented us on choosing Sue and asked if she was a friend of ours. We explained that we had met her only once before the ceremony and they were shocked because of the way she made it seem as if our wedding was the most important wedding in the world. Thank you, Sue, for being a part of our wedding and for making it such a beautiful and comfortable ceremony!

Karine Brassard was absolutely phenomenal, she met with us before the big day and went through many options for us to choose. The addition of her poem was beautiful and she really helped make our day the best ever! Thank you Karine! Jason and Julien May 2019

Jennifer Paul-O'Donnell was wonderful! She made us feel at ease and she did a wonderful celebration ceremony for our big day. She incorporated things to suit our family.
