Toronto's Best Wedding Officiants
Of all the vendors couples hire for their wedding day, officiants are typically the ones who make the shortest appearance on the day of — yet, they’re so important in setting the vibe for the rest of the celebration. I’ve truly come to appreciate each of their unique style, voice and philosophy when it comes to performing ceremonies.
Here are some of my favourite Toronto wedding officiants I can wholeheartedly recommend…
Martin Frith - Ceremonies With Choice
I’ve known Martin pretty much since my beginnings in the wedding industry, and have always known him to bring nothing but positivity and humour to his work.
Martin is Humanist Officiant, meaning he will help you create a memorable wedding ceremony that is non-religious in nature. I’ll also tell you from personal experience that his methods are truly thoughtful and personal (see a photo of Martin officiating my own wedding above) , as he pays great attention to learning about the couple, weaving their unique story into the ceremony.

Sarah Boyer Messenger — Sarahmonies
I’ve been fortunate to work alongside Sarah a number of times and each time is a true pleasure.
Sarah has been a licensed wedding officiant for the province of Ontario since 2008 and has performed hundreds of marriages. As a Humanist Officiant, Sarah provides meaningful, non-religious, celebration of two people’s commitment to their love for each other, and will offer as much or as little guidance as clients need to ensure their ceremony reflects who they are as individuals as well as a couple.
Her warmth and attention to detail are just a couple of reasons she’s such a sought after wedding officiant!
Jonny Belinko — Jonny Belinko Wedding Officiant
Before I knew anything about Jonny, I knew him as the guy in the slim suit carrying the leather briefcase who started popping up at many of the hip weddings I was at.
As I got to know him, I learned about someone whose wholistic approach to weddings is a culmination of his interests in the world around him; Jonny’s connection with nature led him to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science, and his interest in the body and mind has driven him to become an experienced yoga instructor.
A well-rounded and worldly guy, Jonny has become a trusted colleague in the industry and clients can’t say enough great things about him.

Tade Credgeur - The Marrying Lady
Tade, aka The Marrying Lady, is one of Toronto’s busiest wedding officiants. For over 12 years, she’s offered a range of affordable services to couples for all budgets and was named the "Best Toronto Wedding Officiant” by ThreeBestRated.ca for three consecutive years.
I’ve worked with Tade frequently the past several years and she instills a much-welcomed calm and peaceful energy to what can surely be the most nerve-wracking part of the wedding day.
