  • Professional, very responsive and values what you truly want for your day. Very knowledgeable and straight forward when it comes to destination pros and cons. Our wedding was like a dream come true thanks to Wayde. Down to a simple description that i had no idea he was paying attention to from a dream I had. He made sure all the boxes were checked. Wayde will now become my permanent vacation planner. He is amazing! Sheldon and I thank you so much. Our guests loved you.

  • We had already seen Wayde perform a ceremony before hiring him for ours so we already had an idea of what to expect. As anticipated, he did a great job combining the spiritual, romantic and fun loving aspects we were looking for in our ceremony. We received lots of glowing feedback from our guests. Wayde is personable and made both my husband and I feel comfortable and taken care of throughout the entire process of planning as well as during our ceremony. We were so happy to have him share in our day and would recommend his services to another looking to get hitched!!

  • I can’t say enough great things about Wayde and the positive impact he had on our wedding day. Almost every guest who attending our wedding made a point to say how awesome our Officiant was. Our wedding planner recommended Wayde for our ceremony and we were not disappointed. We first met with Wayde a few weeks before the big day to discuss our ideas. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and asked a series of questions to understand how he was going to structure the ceremony. He was open to our ideas and when I told him I hoped to have my sisters give a reading, he offered tons of options for me to choose from. He also gave us advice for writing our vows. On wedding day, Wayde made my now husband and I feel so comfortable standing up there in front of everyone through his calming yet powerful presence and hilarious sense of humour. He had us as well as our guests laughing several times and his words were so memorable and applicable to our marriage. I actually had a few peopl... Read more

  • It was such a pleasure meeting Wayde! We loved his honesty and professionalism, he gave us plenty of wedding tips and advice prior to our big day. Our wedding ceremony aboard "The Oriole" was made memorable by Wayde's kind words, sense of humor (a key factor in why we chose him!) and our symbolic "tying of the knot" hand fastening ceremony. Not a dry eye on the boat deck! We think EVERY guest left with some Wayde's words of wisdom and could relate to what was said in their day-to-day relationships. Thank you for the wonderful memories! ♡

  • We had the best experience with Wayde. Starting from the pre-wedding sessions that we had, he was so flexible about fitting in Skype sessions with us from New Zealand and taking the time to guide us through them. On the day of the ceremony, ourselves and our guests were all blown away by the thoughtful and sometimes humorous words that he spoke and the tone that he set for our wedding. We had so many people telling us it was the best ceremony they had attended. Wayde is definitely your guy!

  • Wayde did an fantastic job and was so easy and fun to work with. His pre-marital sessions taught me and my husband so much about ourselves and each other. He helped set a solid foundation for a successful marriage. At the ceremony, he captivated our guests with his heartfelt words and his delivery. We received so much compliments on how well the ceremony was performed. Hiring Wayde was the easiest and best decision we made during the wedding process and would recommend him to anyone. He is incredible at what he does!

  • Hiring Wayde as our Officiant was our best choice! We didn't even consider anyone else after reading all the reviews before and boy are we ever so glad we chose him. He is so genuine, welcoming, and so, so funny! Wayde will guide you through the entire wedding process (from the legal and ceremonial aspect) and send you friendly reminder e-mails to make sure you are on track. During my vows, I started to get a little emotional and Wayde was right there, telling me it was okay, he pulled a joke and helped me gain my composure before I went on to say the remaining of my vows. Afterward, we got so many compliments from our guests on how funny and wonderful he was! Wayde is the only Officiant you should consider for your wedding!

  • Wayde was so great from the first time we met him. He was the first officiant we met with and it was a done deal right away. He is personable and fun and made the whole process such a breeze. During our rehearsal, he went as far as choreographing our bridal party to make sure we had a beautiful entrance. Our ceremony was amazing. He had the right amount of humour, words of wisdom, and things to think about. All of our guests raved about how great he was. During our rehearsal he had told us that when we leave our ceremony we head straight to the bridal suite and close the door (our maid of honour and best man to guard the door). It was so we could have some time to ourselves, our first moments as husband and wife with no one but each other. It was the best advice and recommendation he could have given us because we were able let it all sink in, just the two of us. From the beginning, to the end, Wayde was fantastic and I would recommend everyone to consider his services!

  • From our first emails, Wayde was super easy to work with and created a great connection right from the start. He provided such a beautiful ceremony. He captured our personalities and the love we have for one another perfectly. This just set the tone for the rest of our wedding. Many of our guests told us how much they loved the ceremony and how great Wayde was. I will be sure to suggest him to friends or family that may be looking for an officiant!

  • Hiring Wayde was, in short, one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process. He is knowledgable, experienced and made the leap into marriage seem less overwhelming by outlining key strategies to set us up for success. Not only did the pre-marital courses add a substantial value but we got dozens and dozens of compliments from our guests on the ceremony performed by Wayde. I would be remiss if I did not INSIST you hire him. You won't regret it.

  • Wayde delivered a wonderful ceremony that had more than half our guests complimenting us, and asking where we found him. We requested that he keep it short but meaningful, and tailor it to our personalities and our style, and Wayde did exactly that. The entire ceremony was over within 15-20 minutes, and was equal parts great advice tailored for our relationship and jokes that had our friends and family in stitches. Wayde is able to deliver such a great ceremony because he takes the time up front to get to know you, ask questions about what you want in your ceremony, and then draw from a huge pool of stories, jokes, and advice to provide just the right experience that will make your wedding worth remembering. He is also great at tweaking his material and responding to events in real time... For example, our ring box came with a little blue light inside that turned on whenever the box was opened. When Wayde and the crowd saw the light, he immediately went, "wow, show me that box again... Read more

  • Wayde was amazing! We did not do our own vows and had a non denominational ceremony, and he was still able to make our ceremony personal and beautiful. He is very confident and did not read from his notes, he spoke freely and from his heart. All our guests loved him and we had a few guests tell us it was the best ceremony they had attended. I would highly recommend Wayde for your wedding.

  • Having Wayde perform our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! He did an amazing job at matching the service to our style and energy, it truly felt personalized. Our guests were so impressed and we hard countless times over how people loved what he said. Don't look further than Wayde! Seriously, you won't regret it.

  • My husband and I chose Wayde to officiate our wedding based on wedding wire ratings/reviews and a Skype chat with him. I can confidently say we have made the right choice. Wayde was accommodating, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We appreciated the counseling sessions prior to our wedding as it helped us understand each other better and be able to better meet each other’s needs. Our ceremony was customized to reflect both of our beliefs and values. Wayde did an amazing job with the ceremony and we received many compliments from friends and family.
