  • The ceremony that Martin put together was wonderful. He was able to incorporate my daughter's Irish heritage by including an Irish Blessing that indeed brought a tear to all of our eyes. He really embodied the bride and grooms spirit in the ceremony as if he had known them forever. The blessing over the food was also a special touch that everyone enjoyed. It was a blessing to have him officiate the wedding especially since we just made it to have the wedding because all venues were shut down in Maryland because of the pandemic. In addition to the luck of the Irish we had the luck of Martin. Many, many thanks!!!

  • Rev Martin Lavery made our day so special! He took the time to meet us in person and customize our ceremony and offer advice, samples, song choices, etc. He has many templates and documents to guide you through building your ceremony! Everything ran so smoothly and we can't thank him enough!

  • When the family friend who would have been our officiant backed out, my wife and I were devastated. For months we struggled to find someone who fit what we wanted. Martin Lavery was a godsend. He was more than willing to make our ceremony exactly what we wanted, and went above and beyond doing so. The words he said, and looking into each others eyes, there was nothing more romantic and fitting for who we are together. Thank you so much for everything.

  • With the help of Rev. Martin we were able to craft the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding. It was my favorite part of the whole day hands down. He told us from day one that he wanted to help us create a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted and a reflection of us. We were able to do exactly that. To top it off Rev. Martin was kind, funny, accommodating, helpful and a dream to work with. We had actually previously booked an officiant that ended up not working out for a variety of reasons and as a result were scared of being able to find someone else in time that was a good fit. Rev. Martin was a breathe of fresh air, and we are so very thankful we found him here at WeddingWire. The reviews are no exaggeration. He really is that great.

  • My husband and I, and our families, cannot say enough wonderful things about Rev. Martin Lavery. From initial contact right up until our wedding day, Rev. Martin was an invaluable resource for all things wedding ceremony. A response to the very first point of contact included a massive document of different ceremony ideas, including readings, vows, and ceremonial pieces. From there on out, he was incredibly accommodating to all of our (slightly off-the-wall) ideas and edits. He was always there to calm nerves, answer questions, or even just to chat, and we always received an incredibly quick reply. Circumstances did not allow him to attend our rehearsal, but he extended about an hour long courtesy FaceTime call with us to explain all of the details of our ceremony, including giving us all of his best advice for conducting rehearsal by ourselves. This was SO appreciated and SO helpful!!! I had attended so many weddings where the officiant went completely off track and lef... Read more
