Chris gave us the ceremony of our dreams.

The ceremony that he created for us was nothing short of incredible.

A lovely human, was genuinely interested in our story and making sure our ceremony was special.

An incredibly personalized ceremony that left no dry eye in the room.

He is a wonderful orator and a wonderful man. You want this man at your wedding.

We cannot say enough about this man and how he made our wedding one of the most special moments in our lives.

As a Licensed Officiant I perform marriages in Stratford and London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Goderich, Hamilton, Burlington, Niagara – and beyond, by request.

People say that I have a warm, engaging presence and a strong, clear voice – formal when necessary, but not necessarily formal. I have extensive professional experience in public speaking, event planning and writing. I love my work as an Officiant because I believe in the importance of ritual and I thrive on the creative process of working with couples to craft a personalized ceremony that tells your story and reflects your values – to make your vision of a perfect ceremony a reality.


Chris is not your typical Officiant. His ability to piece our story together is a gift that we will cherish forever. His voice is clear and poetic. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Made every guest laugh and cry more than once. If you want a beautiful and meaningful ceremony, look no further. Chris made our ceremony what dreams are made of!

A ceremony script that made everyone laugh, cry and smile. Our guests were RAVING about how wonderful he was and how much emotion he was able to add to our special day. Chris orchestrated a moment we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

The love he has for love is palpable and he brought levity and wit to the ceremony without making light of the occasion.

Choosing him as our wedding officiant was the best decision ever. Chris is very professional, patient, passionate, enthusiastic, and thoughtful.

Chris is an all-around incredible person, and anyone preparing for their big day will be lucky to have him around. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations, and his emails also brightened my day.

Your marriage is the most important social contract of your lives. Humanist ceremonies offer broad flexibility and creativity in the structure and form that works for you. My goal is to create a ceremony that celebrates your relationship in a graceful and engaging way, sharing your love with your family, friends and colleagues. I would be honoured to be asked to make your wedding day exhilarating, inspiring and truly memorable.

We didn’t want the ceremony to end, because of how much we were enjoying the moment.
