Humanist Officiant

My Services & Wedding Venue Ideas

Marriage Ceremony

At your request, the marriage ceremony may include specific cultural elements of your choosing and/or modern approaches to totally reflect your values and wishes – always maintaining a respectful tone. Same-sex weddings, remarriages, commitment/renewal of vows and elopement ceremonies can all be created and performed to reflect the importance of these life-changing moments.

Other Life Event Ceremonies

In addition to performing weddings, I also provide customized Celebration of Life funerals and memorials, child namings and adoption welcomings, divorce ceremonies, pet ceremonies and other important secular life-event celebrations.

Wedding/Event Venues

I am based in mid-town Toronto but can negotiate travel to your chosen venue in Ontario. Perhaps you wish to be married on a boat in Lake Ontario, in one of our lovely parks, in a welcoming backyard, at city hall or at home. Summer or winter, you choose the venue that suits you best - see below for ideas. Only you and your fiancé can select the ultimate ceremony location and I will work with you to customize and deliver your unique ceremony.

About Humanism

Humanism is a non-religious or secular philosophy of life that values social justice, equality, compassion and respect for others and the world we share.  A Humanist strives to create a more humane and responsible world through rational thought processes, a respect for science and empathy for others.  Humanist ceremonies are inclusive and celebrate committed relationships, including interfaith, inter​cultural or same sex.  The Ontario Humanist Society is committed to 10 important principles.
