Best Wedding Officiants, Prince Edward County

March 15, 2021

Updated September 27, 2021

Your wedding or elopement should be about you. You are choosing the place, the people and the traditions that mean something to you as a couple. An intentional ceremony, customized to you as a couple is an integral part of your day. Our wedding and elopement couples consistently tell us that they are drawn to our ceremony photographs because they have so much emotion – well friends, that emotion is real, and it is evoked by officiants who get to know their couples and cater the ceremony to their individual union. We reached out to our favourite Prince Edward County Wedding Officiants to gather information about each of their offerings so that you can connect with the officiant that will fit perfectly with your wedding or elopement vision.

One quick note: we recently learned from one of our couples that not all Prince Edward County wedding vendors are LGBTQIA+ friendly and this couple felt they had to ask each vendor individually before inquiring about their services. We make it a priority to work with vendors who are LGBTQIA+ inclusive and will continue to ask vendors directly before recommending their services to any of our couples. Keep reading to learn more about these inclusive, LGBTQIA+ friendly officiants from Prince Edward County, Ontario.

1. Do you work with LGBTQIA+ couples? 

Yes, I do work with LGBTQIA+ couples and am a supportive ally. 

2. How long are the wedding ceremonies you perform on average?  

On average, most wedding ceremonies I perform are between 20 to 40 minutes. This number is completely dependent upon the wishes of the couple and the level of personalization they envision for their ceremony. 

3. How much does a wedding ceremony typically cost? 

A typical ceremony ranges in price. It depends upon factors including the date and time of the event, the size of the wedding party, and the number of guests. My beautifully simple, mid-week elopement packages begin at $300 and range upward to highly personalized, custom-crafted weekend ceremonies for $600.00 plus. 

4. What inspires you about weddings? 

Simply stated – weddings make my entire being glow! The radiance emitted by a couple when they are truly in love is incredible to witness and wholly inspiring. I will forever feel honoured to share with couples that moment when they commit themselves fully to another person. When vows are spoken directly from the heart, I am reminded of how much beauty exists in the human experience. 

5. Do you have one tip for couples planning their wedding or elopement? 

My piece of advice to couples planning their wedding or elopement ceremony is as old as the hills: BE YOURSELF. From my perspective, a wedding ceremony represents the beginning of what can grow into a long and healthy marriage. For this reason, I believe it is best to honour your relationship with ceremonial elements that genuinely reflect each of your personalities. From personalized wedding and ring vows to readings or quotes from notable authors or figures of inspiration to unique unity rituals that enrich the entire experience, your ceremony has the power to radically elevate and transport your love to the next stage of your relationship… if you let it;).
