Erudite, Posh & Kind: The Quintessential Officiant
Elizabeth is a consummate professional. She worked with us to develop a bespoke ceremony and was responsive & available via web conference to go through details. She also made the effort to come to a family event prior to the wedding to meet us & our families in person. You will not be disappointed. Elizabeth is incredibly well-spoken (lovely British accent), educated, worldly and kind - you will be very happy you chose her.Sent on 09/10/2019
Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart's reply:Aimee, I so enjoyed connecting via Zoom before the wedding -- it made "Trans-Atlantic planning" so much easier! I must also commend you for all the effort you put into the ceremony. It was a great collaborative effort!

Elizabeth was available somewhat last minute after a friend was unable to officiate our wedding. She was very professional and had several great ideas to make our wedding ceremony special. We received a number of compliments from our wedding guests on her ceremony. Highly recommend her!Sent on 09/08/2019
Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart's reply:Thanks so much, Jenny! We didn't have much time to work with, but the ceremony turned out beautifully and the venue was perfect. I'm so glad to hear the positive feedback!

The perfect officiant for our wedding!
Elizabeth was a perfect choice for our wedding officiant. We were hoping to find an officiant who was able to create a personalized secular ceremony which also respected our families’ Christian and Muslim beliefs. Elizabeth did a wonderful job and truly exceeded our expectations (which were high to start with!). She impressed us right off the bat with her knowledge of religion and culture during our first conversation, so choosing her as our officiant was honestly an easy decision because we both felt so confident in her abilities right from the get-go. Through her detailed questionnaire, she was able to craft a highly personalized ceremony that we felt captured the essence of our 12-year relationship. We are so happy we chose Elizabeth and would highly recommend her to others as well!Sent on 08/17/2019
Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart's reply:Hi Mustafa: It was delightful working with the two of you. It's not often that I have the opportunity to officiate at the wedding of a couple who have been together as long as you have -- I so enjoyed learning your "story" and somehow packaging it to highlight key moments and experiences in your relationship, along with the inter-religious elements. Thanks for your thoughtful review!

I've been fortunate to work with Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart on a number of weddings over the past few years. When a couple tells me they have hired her, I'm always glad to hear it. Dr. Stewart understands both the liturgical/ritual necessities for a wedding and also the performative aspects. The wedding she officiates are always well-thought-out and heartfelt. She is always at the top of my list when I recommend officiants.
