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!Ruth-Anne and Andrew

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! Amanda and Dmytro

We love what we do and even those couples or families we interact with love what we do as well.  Check out these testimonials:

Thanks again and all the best,  Lisa and Stephen

Phil, We would like to thank you again for Officiating our wedding.....it was exactly what we wanted and couldn't have imagined it any other way.

Phil, It was an absolute pleasure! Thank you for keeping the ceremony light and fun, just the way we wanted it! You kept up with us and let us have our giggles! It was perfect and everyone there said they had an absolute blast and it was one of the best ceremonies they've been to. Thank you so much! Candice

Hi Phil, Well Matt and I just got back from our honeymoon and we wanted to write and thank you soooo very much for being a part of our special day.  You were absolutely great, we've had many comments about how great the ceremony was.  Thanks so much again, take care, Erin and Matt :)


Hi Phil, We were so happy that you were part of our day...Travis and I never had to worry about a thing...you ran it all so flawlessly. One comment that we heard over and over was how much people loved our ceremony. That it was personal and emotional, but without being too long. My dad also wanted you to know that he loved that you had a great sense of humour, but while keeping everyone on track and focused. Thanks again for everything. We're so happy with how everything went. Mr & Mrs Mullen (!!!!) :)
