Thank you Leonard for providing a beautiful service within such short notice. The words you delivered were perfect for our intimate wedding. We asked that it was short and sweet with a focus on our vows and you delivered. You gave us the legal components intertwined with love and romance. You were also prompt, professional, and easy to work with. Wishing you all the best!

We wanted a quick ceremony with little to no frills. Leonard was able to provide that while making it a memorable and romantic ceremony. He even catered to our odd reading request and was able to roll with the punches when we realized we didn't have our rings. 10/10 service. Thanks again for making our day so special.

We were so happy we went with Leonard for our small intimidate wedding. He was well-prepared, gave us easy and to-the-point instructions, and brought a great energy to our wedding day. He also followed up right after the ceremony and gave us a tracking number for our marriage certificate as soon as he mailed it out. You will have great peace of mind with Leonard!

Leonard was amazing and we could not have been more pleased to have him officiate our wedding. From the first point of contact, he was very kind, respectful, professional, communicative and VERY quick to respond to all our questions. He made us feel comfortable and fulfilled our every request. The best part was the way he included my late mom into the ceremony. Martin and I are extremely grateful to you Leonard. Thank you :)

Stephanie and Kevin

We, like many other couples, had been counting down to our wedding day for quite some time when the pandemic forced us to rethink our big celebration. Despite having moved our original plans to next year, Kevin and I still wanted to have an intimate ceremony with just our families and get married on our original date. We reached out to Leonard about the possibility of officiating a 'minimony' and he got back to us right away to set up a zoom call and discuss what we had in mind. He was very friendly and accommodating from the get-go! We wanted to keep our ceremony as simple as possible to not take away from the big day next year. However, Leonard had convinced us to add some little touches to make the day special and we are so glad we listened to him! We are very thankful for Leonard's resourcefulness and support. He was very responsive to all our questions and was so patient with all our indecisiveness! We absolutely loved his script - it was very touching, personable, and light-hearted. He definitely played a key role in making it a memorable day for us.

Leonard was super helpful during the entire process! He offered us beyond professional service every step of the way and listened to all of our personalization requests! We had a couple of back and forth with him regarding the structure for the wedding ceremony since we couldn't make up our minds at first. Leonard was attentive to each of our questions and concerns and guided us through the whole process. At the end of the day, we got married just the way we envisioned it!!! We would highly recommend Leonard for any couples seeking unique civil wedding ceremonies!

Thank you so much Leonard. Despite the hectic schedule and music mix-up everyone had fun. My dad was particularly very happy with you. He told me “That’s how one should officiate a wedding.” He didn’t expect it since the ones we’ve attended at City Hall had very different vibes. Thanks again!

We were the first couple to reach out to Leonard back in February 2019 to officiate our wedding. He has been there every step of the way through the countless reschedules! Yesterday marked his 50th wedding ceremony and it makes me so happy how much we’ve ALL grown since then. Having only known him mainly through emails, I can tell he is a great dude that is perfect for such an intimate and special act as marrying people!

Leonard was the PERFECT fit for our wedding. After our initial meeting with him, my wife and I knew we wanted him to be apart of our special day. He's incredibly warm and inviting. He really understood our vision for the day and spoke about our love so eloquently. He truly captured the love that my wife and I share. We couldn't imagine having anyone else officiate our small backyard wedding. We can't thank him enough!

Planning a pandemic wedding was no easy task but Leonard lifted a huge weight off our shoulders and immediately made us feel like we could do it!

We had our officiant booked and checked off the list more than a year in advance and this person backed out a month before the big day. We had no idea how we were going to get back on track in that short time. We found Leonard that same night and his reviews were incredible!

We decided to take a chance with the stranger from the internet and it ended up being the best decision we made. We are so thankful that our original officiant backed out because we couldn’t imagine our wedding with out Leonard being a part of it.

He immediately put our very stressed minds at ease and he was so flexible with all the changes that were out of our control including venue and time adjustments.

We couldn’t have pulled off this wedding with out him and are so grateful for his calming presence and positive attitude.

The ceremony was perfect and we couldn’t be happier. He took the time to get to know us, our interests, and what we were looking for in order to tailor the experience just for us. He was thoughtful, sincere, and incredibly helpful. I would recommend him to anyone.

Leonard was amazing throughout the entire process of our wedding. We had to plan, re-plan, and re-replan everything due to pandemic restrictions, and he took everything in stride. What a nice guy and we felt like we were in great hands the entire time. Thank you so much, Leonard!

My wife and I are very happy that Leonard officiated our wedding.

He was professional, extremely kind, and super easy to talk to.

We weren't sure what to expect when we had to pick out our ceremony, Leonard did amazing at helping us, and he responded very quickly to all of our questions. I definitely highly recommend having Leonard be anyone's officiant. Thank you so much Leonard!!!

19. Delta and Sally.jpg

I wanted to say many, many thanks for coming over on a rainy day. We wouldn’t have done it without you. What makes it even more challenging is having our ceremony during COVID times, but you made it seem no different. I would definitely recommend your services to my friends and family!

Delta and Sally

From the moment we met Leonard we knew he would be the perfect officiant for us. He has a graceful and calm way of speaking, which he infuses with a dose of good humour. He really took the time to get to know us, and tailored the ceremony to fit what we were looking for. We also had a lot of control over the ceremony itself- we worked off of a draft all together. He was very easy to communicate with and returned emails almost instantly. He also ran the rehearsal with ease, and had answers for all our questions and worries. We got many compliments on our ceremony. We would highly recommend Leonard!"

Kaitlyn and Ben

Leonard could not have been more amazing, flexible and professional regarding everything tied to our beautiful wedding. I can’t begin to tell you how smooth and flawless the ceremony was and how elated Fiona and I were with how he conducted himself, incorporated our witnesses and really made the moment feel special and unique for everyone. Highly recommend!

Fiona and Jeremy

A fantastic service. Professional, caring and ensuring all of the minor details were addressed with perfect execution.  I would recommend Leonard's services to anyone!

Adam and  Liz

Thank you Leonard for a beautiful ceremony and for giving us exactly what we wanted.  

Elena and  Alen

Leonard was amazing right from the beginning. He’s friendly and confident, and happy to make suggestions to help guide the way, but also wants to makes sure the ceremony goes just how you want it to. He was available for in person meetings, by email, and didn’t hesitate to make sure we had everything we needed (and helped us remember some important details along the way).  Leonard was a reassuring presence on a busy day - and we couldn’t be happier that he was our officiant!

Heather and Garett

Leonard was a fantastic officiant. Dave and I were thoroughly pleased with his professionalism, his organization and his willingness to help. Leonard was a great addition to our day and we would highly recommend him.

Julie and David

Our guests are still talking about how much they loved our ceremony!  Leonard was patient, fun to be around and professional. He listened to what we wanted in our initial meeting and created a ceremony that perfectly represented us. He was always on time and someone we could count on to get the bridal party under control during rehearsal. We are so happy we chose him to officiate our big day! Thank you Leonard- all the best!

Erin and Keith

Leonard made a great first impression with his level of organization and attention to detail. We did not want a religious ceremony and he was very accommodating. Leonard provided appropriate guidance and created a customized ceremony for us.

 

Leonard kept the lines of communication open and was available for guidance and assistance throughout the planning process. He provided helpful resources for us to consider when writing vows and choosing readings, and even incorporated our couple’s tattoos in the ceremony.

 

Leonard's knowledge, experience and professionalism made for a stress-free planning process and a beautiful ceremony on the beach. I would absolutely recommend Leonard as a marriage officiant!

Cheryl and Shane

Leonard was an absolute delight to work with. We want to thank you for being so professional and for taking charge. For example, when you discussed with the coordinator my bridal entrance and having people open the curtain so I had my own personal entrance - you really made a huge difference.  We knew our bridal party was large and loud (lol) but you stepped in and were not only professional but were organized and took charge which is something we needed during our rehearsal and wedding day.  Lastly, you really made us feel comfortable and open. I felt that having you stand with us during our ceremony gave us a sense of calmness and let us enjoy the moment and I thank you endlessly for that.

Natalie and Steven

 

Easiest decision!  We were very indecisive about what we wanted for our ceremony and Leonard helped talk us through our options and gave us suggestion to guide us. He was very professional and easy to work with. The ceremony he delivered was thoughtful, personal with a little humour. We would highly recommend Leonard when looking for an officiant for your wedding, he was awesome!!

Marley and Bert

Upon meeting Leonard we immediately knew he was the perfect person to officiate our wedding! His level of professionalism mixed with his very chill and calming demeanor made an event that's usually deemed as stressful, super enjoyable and better than we could've ever hoped for. He was responsive, kept us organized through the entire process, and helped us craft a ceremony that was tailored precisely to our needs. We would absolutely recommend Leonard to anyone, and we're so happy that we chose him to officiate our big day!

Jazmine and Boris

Leonard was professional, kind, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic in helping us organize our ideal ceremony where our brother/brother-in-law led the majority of it minus the legal portions. It was amazing and we really appreciate his openness to our requests and helping put it all together.

 

Kathleen and Harrison

We loved having Leonard be a part of our special day. From the moment we first met him for coffee, we knew that we wanted him to officiate our ceremony. Leonard’s positivity and kindness was evident, and he made every step of the process seamless. Leonard was happy to answer all of our (many) questions, both in person and through email and was great at explaining the process and how he could make the ceremony unique for us. 

 

The day of our wedding is where we think the decision to have Leonard as the officiant was reaffirmed. It was amazing to have him coordinate with the photographers, DJ and venue to ensure that everything went smoothly and effortlessly. Leonard balanced perfectly a level of professionalism with a down to earth and friendly demeanour. As nervous as we were the day of, Leonard was calm and reassuring, and was able to provide a sense of humour that helped us cope with the nerves.

 

The ceremony itself was everything we could have hoped for, and got an abundance of compliments from guests afterward, saying how wonderful his ceremony was! Thank you again Leonard for being there to help us through our big day. We appreciate everything you did for us, and couldn’t imagine anyone else standing up there with us.

Colin and Emily

Considered him against another full-time officiant and the difference was staggering. Professional and willing to personalise everything based on your personalities. He has a calming, easy going presence and just makes you want to smile for some reason! All of our guests raved about him and we couldn't agree more. Everything went smoothly and his sense of humour during the ceremony was a perfect balance of personality and professionalism.

Francois and Sheryl

Leonard was amazing to work with. He was very professional and easy to communicate with. My husband and I were starting to lose hope about getting married this year but Leonard accommodated us in such a short notice despite the pandemic. You definitely made our wedding extra special. We couldn’t have thanked you enough! All the best!
