Shantee Cathey · Married on 03/09/2019
Thelma was the ultimate professional and officiated a ceremony that left my guests impressed! From our first encounter I knew she was “the one” and she did not disappoint. Her attention to detail and personality made the entire process seamless. She takes the time to get to know you to make the ceremony as personal as possible, offers suggestions, and provided a detailed outline of what to expect on our wedding day. The fact that we live in Georgia did not impact the level of communication in the least. We used video conference for our first “face to face”. She’s extremely flexible and we communicated often to perfect the ceremony details. It was truly our pleasure having Thelma officiate our wedding!Sent on 03/26/2019

Mrs. Brathwaite is an absolute gem!
Mrs. Brathwaite made our wedding such a special day not only for us, as the bride and groom, but for our guests as well. Her professionalism, thoughtfulness, and kindred spirit made the planning process simple as we were planning our wedding from another state. Her advice, wisdom, flexibility and willingness to meet with us each time we visited the Orlando area was an added bonus. Our wedding ceremony was everything we envisioned and more thanks to Mrs. Brathwaite. Our guests continue to comment on how beautiful and personal our wedding ceremony was and for that - we give a million thanks to Mrs. Brathwaite.Sent on 11/04/2018

I don't know where to begin my experience with Thelma was the best. She was on top of everything she kept in touch with us throughout the whole process. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant. I recommend her on so many levels and appreciate everything she has done. Some would say its doing the job. I would say its going above and over beyond thank you so much.Sent on 07/29/2018

Pamela · Married on 04/21/2018
Thelma performed a blessing for my husband and I in the UK after we had our official wedding ceremony which was performed by a registrar as required by law in the UK at the Hallmark Hotel London Chigwell Prince Regent. She provided us with that little something extra for our ceremony by telling our love story to our guests and we performed a Unity Candle ceremony, both of these are something I don't think many, if any of them had ever seen before. Thelma gave us guidance throughout the preparations and made our ceremony so much more personal than just having a registrar performing it. It was the joining of two families to become one big family with 6 children and 12 grandchildren and she ensured that everyone was included along the way. Thelma is a breath of fresh air and she calms your nerves and soothes you with her pleasant manner. She made our day even more special with the way she performed the ceremony.Sent on 05/10/2018
If you are looking for an Officiant to perform your ceremony in the US or a blessing in UK then I would not hesitate to
recommend her to you.
Invitation to a Wedding's reply:Thank you. It was a delight to Officiant your wedding in the U.K. a lot of special added touches kept everyone guessing what wa next. Glad you were pleased.
Shakira · Married on 01/13/2018
There are not enough words to describe how pleased my husband and I are with the service we received from Minister Thelma. I knew from our first conversation that she would be perfect to officiate our wedding. Minister Thelma took the time out to really get to know my husband and I. I had to plan my wedding while I was working overseas and was concerned that everything would not come together as I thought. Minister Thelma alleviated all concerns I had by communicating with me every step of the way. In the end, my wedding ceremony was more than I could have ever asked for! My guests keep talking about how great it was and how personalized it was to fit my husband and I. We are truly thankful and pleased with the service we received and there is no doubt that Minister Thelma helped to make our day one that we will never forget!Sent on 02/06/2018
Invitation to a Wedding's reply:Thank you it was my pleasure to reassure you whilst planning your big day from overseas and trusting your wedding ceremony in our care. God Bless you both!
Melissa · Married on 08/19/2017
Minster Thelma gave my now husband & I the very best anyone could ask for in a Minister. When she says, this is what God has called her to do.....its true. One of the most impressive thing about Minister Thelma is that she listens....during the ceremony she spoke about us as if she had walked the journey along side of us before getting to the alter. That's someone who has allowed God to lead in their life. My husband & I are forever grateful to Minister Thelma for her prayers and words of encouragement before & during the ceremony. We absolutely love her!!! We're so grateful that God has placed her in Our path while searching for a Officiant for Our wedding. She is now a member of our family.Sent on 08/27/2017

While no amount of words can truly explain the exceptional level of service provided, we will try our best to state why Minister Thelma Brathwaite is the perfect choice for your wedding!Sent on 04/19/2017
As an overseas couple doing our research for vendors through the internet we read about Minister Thelma Brathwaite.
From our very first meeting with Minister Brathwaite, we knew we had a gem and selected the ideal officiant for us. She was eager to learn of how we met, what we did for fun and gave us poignant advice on relationship longevity. She was able to take all the points we stated during our hour session with her and create the most personalized, loving and memorable ceremony service that our family still speak about almost a month later. We were truly honored to have such a dedicated professional leading our ceremony as she exceeded our entire family's very high standards and expectations!
Thanks so much XoXoXo Darin & Erica Minors, Bermuda

Nya · Married on 01/02/2017
Thelma was an absolute pleasure to work with!! Extremely patient and overwhelmingly kind, she goes above and beyond expectations. She made the ceremonial process a piece of cake and her accent really set off a gentle and loving ambiance. She prepares an incredible ceremony that is formulated specifically for you and your spouse, it cannot be replicated because it is designed for you with your traits in mind. Thelma was honestly one of the most valuable and memorable pieces of my entire wedding - I forgot about my flowers, decor, and cake etc but I remember how peaceful she made me and my husband feel while we were at the alter. I am so thankful that she was able to officiate my wedding. Make the decision to hire her and I promise you will not regret it.Sent on 01/14/2017
Invitation to a Wedding's reply:Thank you for your review. I am delighted that I met your expectations and more. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. It has truly been a pleasure getting to know both of you. God Bless you both in your marriage.
Khalis · Married on 09/17/2016
My wife and I really enjoyed Thelma and the way she facilitated our wedding on 09/17/2016. What stood out the most for our ceremony was how she presented a story line of my wife and I journey up to that point. She interacted with our guests and spent time with the entire wedding party before the ceremony. Thelma also contacted us weekly to go over changes, updates, or general information that was needed. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend Thelma.Sent on 09/20/2016

My husband and I would like to thank Thelma on all she did. We couldn't have chosen a better officiant to marry us. She has been so patient and kind to us through this whole journey, while working with us 3 hours away. Themla has been so compliant with responding to every phone call and email in a timely manner.

Michelle · Married on 07/01/2016
Thank goodness for Thelma! For whatever reason, our officiant was one of the last vendors we booked. Normally this isn't recommended but Thelma was very quick and flexible. She was able to bring our non-traditional wedding together in no time. Neither of us are religious but our families are, and we truly had no idea what our ceremony should be like. We chatted with Thelma on the phone, gave her our background and she wrote up a draft ceremony for us. Which was amazing and right on point of what we had decided we wanted. When we met in person to chat, she was timely, prepared and made sure we understood our commitment to one another. She attended the rehearsal and was able to direct our roudy group well. The day of the wedding, she was very understanding and patient when a few things went awry. I am ever so grateful for Thelma and her services on our big day. She truly made it special and unique to us and I believe she can do that for any couple. I highly recommend her.Sent on 07/25/2016
Invitation to a Wedding's reply:Thank you, Michelle & Reggie for inviting me into your lives to be a "special part of your day."

You looked stunning, as well as Reggie. Thank you!
