About

Our ministers our active members of a church in some capacity or the other... they are serving Gods children. Weddings are not a just a business for us.... its a ministry, a passion that we have to join together the Love that God has brought together. Every time we officiate at a wedding ceremony we are awed by the extraordinary energy that becomes available when two people in love literally step up to commit themselves to this sacred union. Because we are frequently called upon to solemnize marriage vows outside of traditional religious settings, we have seen time and again that a holy temple can be created anywhere love is present.


Although many of us have attended traditional weddings, in churches, synagogues and temples, in recent years we have seen the emergence of a new type of wedding, where couples marry outside of a formal house of worship in places such as parks, beaches or a private home. They often opt for ceremonies that are non traditional, personal and unique. Whether they include religious traditions or not.... most every couple wants their ceremony to be sacred.

Reverend John started Indiana Wedding Ministries a few years ago to service the needs of these people searching for alternatives to marrying in the church, who may have no local church that they attend or are from different religious backgrounds.

    Reverend John Fliris ("RJ") just officiated our wedding and was great. He made us feel comfortable and everyone enjoyed the ceremony. I would definitely recommend him. Cheers!

    My husband and I could not have picked a better officiant for our wedding. From the minute I first called to speak to Rev. John Fliris he was very friendly and helpful. I immediately made an appointment for us to meet with him in person. He was very easy to speak with and listened to our wishes for the wedding. The wedding went so smooth and was exactly what he promised it would be, comfortable and memorable. Our wedding would not have been the same without him!

    John Fliris was the perfect officiant we could have asked for! He was always there to answer questions and we loved that he made our wedding ceremony our own. We got to choose all the readings and he helped make everything so smooth. We would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant in the future!
