Thank you so much for providing us with a wonderful ceremony. You did a great job with the limited amount of material we gave you to work with. We could not be happier with how our day unfolded and you were a big part of the success.
Thanks again,

We cannot thank you enough for your service. You provided us exceptional, professional guidance since our first contact. Your words during the service were spot on. We loved the call to action that you directed at us in your closing and we will strive to live up to them.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I will do a top notch online review upon our return from camping.
Best regards my friend.

Jeff was our wedding officiant this Fall. He was very easy going from day 1 and he assured us that our ceremony could be however we wanted to it be. Jeff was absolutely FANTASTIC the day of. He made sure everything ran seamlessly and made the ceremony very relaxed and fun. He made spontaneous jokes throughout and had the audience laughing the whole time. We would HIGHLY recommend Jeff to anyone getting married in the London area.
Kelly and Adam


Jeff officiated our wedding this winter and he was wonderful. He was very accommodating – we live out of town so only met through Skype before the wedding – but we found him very reassuring and willing to make the ceremony exactly as we wanted it. He gave great advice on the timing and the order and he made our ceremony extremely personalized and meaningful. We would highly recommend working with him to anyone in the London area.

Hi Jeff,
I just wanted to take a moment to send a special thank-you to Jeff Hicks who did such an amazing job officiating my daughter’s wedding last weekend. The ceremony for Chantal and Jake was absolutely beautiful. It is clear that Jeff loves what he does and his manner was personal, professional, and caring. We are truly blessed to have found him as he was the perfect fit for our families. I know that Chantal and Jake felt very comfortable with the whole process and Jeff was easy to talk to and went out of his way to make everything perfectly suited to the two of them. Please share this testimonial if you would like. I highly and sincerely recommend Jeff and thank him for sharing his gift for making a special day that much more amazing.
All the best,
Sandy Lloyd


Hi Jeff,
​Lisa and I would like to thank you for being our officiant. The ceremony was exactly how we envisioned it would be. Unfortunately we were bombarded once the ceremony ended and we did not have the opportunity to thank you.


​Thank you for being a part of our big day! You made everything so easy – the day ran so smoothly. You made us both feel so comfortable and as ease on a day that could have been so stressful.
Thank you,
Leah and Sasha


We highly recommend Jeff! He was our officiant and was amazing to work with, very professional.
Katie and Steven

Max and I wanted to say thank you for doing such an excellent job at our wedding in May. You did a great job and helped everything run very smoothly-we really appreciate it!


We chose Jeff Hicks! Our wedding was this past weekend and he was so great to work with!
He even added in a few extras based on things we told him about ourselves! It was so amazing and unexpected. We got a ton of compliments too!
Patsy and Tyson


Thank you so much much for being the BEST officiant. You made the ceremony light and fun and VERY us. We appreciated all of the jokes throughout and loved the energy that you brought to the ceremony. We had countless compliments on you and many people said it was the most relaxed ceremony they had attended. Thank you so much.
Kelly & Adam


Good morning Jeff,
Hope all is well for you! We wanted to send you some pictures our photographer captured of you at our ceremony on the 1st of September that showcased how incredibly comfortable and at ease you made us feel the day of our wedding. We are so appreciative of your guidance through this completely new experience. Your expertise and calm perspective, your mentoring and experience was invaluable to a good night sleep after the rehearsal. Please let us know where you would prefer we write a glowing review!
Thanks so much!
Andrée and Mike
