About Martin's Weddings

Your Ceremony is Your Wedding, So Let's Make It About YOU!

I am an ordained minister dedicated to creating the wedding of your dreams! You should have the wedding you desire on one of the most important days of your life! My name is Reverend Martin Christopher, and I would like to say thank you for considering me to officiate your wedding. It will be an honor to perform your wedding ceremony.

The ceremony and vows should reflect the uniqueness of your relationship and capture the celebration of the love which brought you to this memorable moment in your lives. There are a variety of civil, non-denominational, multi-faith, religious and non-religious ceremonies available to choose from, or I can help you create a customized wedding ceremony that honors and reflects the love you share. It’s YOUR wedding day – have the ceremony you want!

Ceremonies can be traditional or innovative;   I will lovingly perform the ceremony you choose. I will travel to your location and be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Even if it is a last minute ceremony, I will do my best to officiate your special day.

I will gladly provide a script of vows prior to any ceremony and/or help write new ones per your direction. Please let my 36 years of wedded bliss help make your first special day together a happy and memorable one.

With the help of Rev. Martin we were able to craft the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding. It was my favorite part of the whole day hands down. He told us from day one that he wanted to help us create a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted and a reflection of us. We were able to do exactly that.

To top it off Rev. Martin was kind, funny, accommodating, helpful and a dream to work with. We had actually previously booked an officiant that ended up not working out for a variety of reasons and as a result were scared of being able to find someone else in time that was a good fit. Rev. Martin was a breathe of fresh air, and we are so very thankful we found him here at WeddingWire. The reviews are no exaggeration. He really is that great.

When the family friend who would have been our officiant backed out, my wife and I were devastated. For months we struggled to find someone who fit what we wanted. Martin Lavery was a godsend. He was more than willing to make our ceremony exactly what we wanted, and went above and beyond doing so. The words he said, and looking into each others eyes, there was nothing more romantic and fitting for who we are together. Thank you so much for everything.

Reverend Lavery is an absolute pleasure to work with. He arrives punctually early on every occasion, is incredibly helpful and easy to work with and manages the ceremony like a true professional. He takes his position very seriously and understands the magnitude of the services he is offering and how significant that portion of the day is to the couple. If you are looking for someone to make you feel comfortable, customize a ceremony to you and your beloved and to be reliable and an absolute pleasure to work with I cannot recommend him enough!!!

It was a pleasure to work with Reverend Martin this past weekend. As a photographer, I rely on the officiant for prompts and permission to get great pictures of the ceremony -- and Martin made it easy. He was professional, friendly and easy to work with. I highly recommend him.
