Thank you Garry for officiating our marriage on such a short notice. Especially, for offering your beautiful deck as an alternative venue as the weather was not kind on the day of wedding. You really made our special day memorable!
I had the pleasure of using Garry Francis’s officiating service. The setting and the ceremony was awesome, he made it safe and special for us. He brought humour and fun to the occasion small as it was, it was memorable. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pleasant and intimate affair.
When it became apparent that COVID-19 wasn't going anywhere and our original plans for our wedding were going to have to be put on hold, we decided to have a small wedding (family only) in our apartment. Since we were going to have a destination wedding, we didn't have an officiant here in Toronto. I searched through many many many wedding wire officiants, but eventually focused my search on the Premium rated officiants. Garry's page stood out, not only because of the hundreds of 5 star reviews, but because of the genuine warmth of the photos attached to the reviews. I contacted Garry and he was very responsive and set up a virtual meeting with us to go over details and get to know us a bit before officiating our wedding. His website is full of wonderful resources for writing vows, ceremony templates (all customizable), and other fun suggestions to make your special day truly yours! The restrictions were set to change the day of our wedding and Garry was instrumental in ensuring the day went off without a hitch. He reached out to fellow pastors in our area to help us secure a secondary venue if needed, and reassured us that our original plan was still possible- he was flexible with whatever we decided on. In an already stressful situation, his calm, professionalism, humour, and good spirit was invaluable. I cannot recommend Garry enough as an officiant for your wedding. His personality, experience, and guidance made our wedding day a memorable and perfect one! Garry, we thank you!
Garry was a fantastic officiant for my husband and I. He was very accommodating and helpful as we navigated the process. We went with the short and sweet package due to COVID-19. He was one of the only officiants that offered a small ceremony with such a simple package, which is exactly what we were looking for. Although it was small, it was very meaningful and special for us because of the care he put into it. He also offered a time capsule option for an additional price, which included several items that we will open on our anniversary and use to celebrate. Overall, it was an excellent experience! These things can be stressful, especially during a pandemic, but Garry really helped it to be less stressful.
