We had the honour of having Garry Francis as our Officiant for our "Pandemic" Wedding this past Saturday, June 6th, 2020. Although, our Wedding Ceremony had been planned to occur at a large venue, with all our friends and family joining with us, due to COVID-19, our Nuptials happened in our backyard. We knew we wanted Garry to be our chosen Minister, as he did such a excellent job officiating at the Marriage of my son, a few years ago. Having Garry officiate our social-distancing event was made just as special as it would have been for our originally planned Ceremony. He was so encouraging, as he conducted the beautiful, intimate service for Gerald and I. It was a memorable moment. We so appreciate Garry's professional and caring manner and would highly recommend him as your choice for your Wedding Officiant. You will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Marlene and Gerald

This wedding was a "double honour! It was such an honour to officiate for the bride's son years ago. It was a "double honour" to officiate once again for Marlene and Gerald...a couple full of life and promise! This couple is a match made in heaven! Enjoy married life a lifetime of happiness and every blessing! Stay together forever!

I have worked with Garry Francis for a few years at the funeral home. I would call on him time and time again to officiate funeral services for grieving families. He would always deliver a wonderful, meaningful and personal service for the families. When my fianc and I decided to get married, Garry Francis was the first person I thought of contacting to help us on our big day. Despite COVID-19 disrupting our original plans to wed, Garry Francis was extremely flexible and accommodating and went with the flow as our plans changed. Garry officiated our civil ceremony on Sunday May 24, 2020. We chose the Sweet & Simple service and were not disappointed. His delivery of the service was beautifully done and still had a personal feel. We also purchased a lovely time capsule from Garry to commemorate our small scale big day. The package comes in a nicely decorated box with a bottle of wine, two glasses, his & hers card to record the reasons why we love each other/chose each other, a certificate to document this milestone and a couple of decorative items. We could not be happier with Garry Francis services and would highly recommend him to any couples that are looking to have a small or big scale ceremony.

When Covid 19 caused my nephew (Dave) and his fiance's (Sabrina) plans for a Labour Day weekend wedding in Montreal to be cancelled, Garry Francis stepped in and conducted a service that met all of the physical distancing requirements for them. At 6 pm on May 4th, Garry performed the ceremony on the deck in his backyard, while family and friends from all around the world (including, England and Australia) watched as the two witnesses live-streamed the event for us! Thank you Garry, for making this such a beautiful, joyous occasion for all of us during a very difficult time! It is one we will cherish forever!
