Thanks for a fabulous and joyful experience Weddings By Wayde
My wife and I utilized the services of Weddings By Wayde for our premarital counseling, wedding officiant and travel agent for our honeymoon getaway. My wife and I are happy that we took advantage of the pre-marital counseling sessions offered by Weddings By Wayde. The sessions reinforced that we were ready for the big step to get married. It was a fantastic experience as it allowed my wife (then fiancée) and I to continue growing as a couple. Wayde was a pleasure to interact with, his professionalism and expertise were exemplary.
As our wedding officiant, Wayde performed a very thoughtful, fun and vivid wedding ceremony. My wife and I were extremely pleased with the ceremony; feedback from our guest were all positive as Wayde hit all the pertinent points.
We also utilized Weddings By Wayde as our travel agent to search and reserve our honeymoon getaway. He found a fantastic getaway spot in the Bahamas within our budget.
My wife and I had a fabulous experience on all fronts. Wayde was a joy to interact with as he made us feel relax and comfortable from the first introduction.

"Your officiant was amazing!" - Reviews from all my wedding guests
Wayde’s delivery of my ceremony far exceeded my expectations. From the beginning, he was approachable, friendly, and had a great sense of humour. He takes the time to get all the details, personalizes the ceremony to ensure your vision comes to life, and always there to help with any questions or concerns. Wayde also has some great connections for travel and décor. Everything Wayde said at my ceremony was both genuine and sincere, and spoke to my husband and I.

Wayde is the best!
I can't recommend Wayde enough - he made our ceremony so heartfelt and funny at the same time, he was literally the talk of our wedding! Every guest told us how awesome he was, how it was the best ceremony they had every witnessed and wishing that he had business cards so they could pass them on! He personalized everything to our tastes (he even asks if you would like him to wear any particular colour tie! So detailed!) and truly made our day feel so special. I am a really private and shy person and we didn't do what Wayde calls "love notes" (telling your future spouse how much you loved them before you say your vows) and opted for the traditional vows so I was a bit worried that I wouldn't have the "emotionally charged" and personal ceremony that I was really hoping for - but Wayde really made it happen (and I'm sure both of us crying through the whole thing also helped, happy tears I assure you!)
We met with Wayde 4 times before our wedding - once to hire him, once to finalize the details of our ceremony and twice to do some pre-marital counselling which he offers as well. We still have one more session to do since we couldn't fit it in before our wedding day, but I also highly recommend this additional service, Wayde really helps you focus on the marriage part of your wedding, at least for a few hours in the really hectic time leading up to your wedding day and he gives incredible advice.
If you're thinking of hiring Wayde at all, don't hesitate! He is incredible at what he does and you will not regret it. Thank you again Wayde!
