    We love Reverend Bellamy!

    As wedding photographers, we have worked with Rev Bellamy for many years. His ceremonies are always so touching. He infuses so much of the couples' personalities into them.

    Father Jerry Bellamy's reply:

    Isabel, it is always a joy to work with you. You are the best. You somehow capture great photos during the ceremony without me even being aware that you are there. Father Jerry

    The best officiant

    We loved having Father Jerry as our officiant! Our wedding was at the Santa Barbara courthouse and he did a tremendous job. He helped us design a ceremony that included all the things that were important to us and put us at such ease with his wonderful sense of humor and professionalism. Our guests raved about him and were appreciative that the ceremony reflected our families’ Christian and Buddhist faiths. We are so grateful to Father Jerry for making our day so special and memorable- we cannot recommend him enough!

    Spreadsheet to choose BEST Officiant

    The most important part of your wedding day is your CEREMONY. You will have many meals and parties to look back on in your lives, but only ONE ceremony. Thousands of people can be authorized to perform a ceremony, having NO training or experience. I hear stories all of the time of how terrible some ceremonies are. I have a SPREADSHEET for you to consider URGENT ISSUES about Officiants. I will send it to you....

    The issues you have to consider about Officiants are:

    1. How many years of formal training to officiate weddings
    2. Is really ordained or only has "on line" license
    3. Is trained in counseling
    4. Trained in Catholic-Christian-Jewish-Muslim weddings
    5. Years of experience performing weddings
    6. How many weddings performed
    7. Is bilingual
    8. Performs Same Sex weddings
    9. What wedding websites showing
    10. How many reviews
    11. Are all of the reviews 5 STARS
    12. Performs weddings everywhere in CA

    Let me know if you want me to send that to you. If you have any questions 805-687-4248

    It is very challenging for couples to not only choose the right person to marry them but also to find the right person! In this small pocket of California there are limited choices. I am so relieved when my clients mention Father Jerry because I know not only will they have a memorable and exquisitely penned ceremony but they will also go into their day organized, calm and excited. Father Jerry has many years of experience and knows how to set my clients' mind at ease. I highly recommend him for the job!
